Wedding Menu Tasting #2

Sunday, April 13, 2008

Since we weren’t that happy with our first tasting, our venue asked us to come back for a second one, where the executive chef, Phil, would be present. This experience was much better and I’m a bit more relaxed now.
We started with the Crab Cakes which were still not lump crab meat but tasted much […]

The Place

Friday, April 11, 2008

The Place The Place is a cute and cozy space that fits right into the West Village, with a few open air seats in the front. They achieve a good balance between dim romantic lighting and being able to read your menu and see your food. While some of the food was very good, a […]

Wedding Menu Tasting

Monday, March 31, 2008

Carlyle on the Green handles their tastings a little differently. We were invited to have dinner in The Oak Room, the restaurant of their country club, where several menu items overlap with choices you have on the wedding menu. We tried three appetizers, three entrees, and dessert, asked our wonderful server, Andrew, many questions, and […]

My awesome bridesmaids chose Sonsie Sonsie for Saturday night’s dinner for two reasons, Parmesan Truffle Fries and Cashel Blue Cheese Fries. My best friends know that I’m crazy about fries, especially with cheese, and I’ve been on a serious search for a replacement for my favorite Diner 24 Disco Fries, that are no longer available […]

Kingswood Kingswood is a scene, a people watching restaurant, not a people eating restaurant. The first clue is that there are way more people crowded by the bar then people seated in the dining room. After eating there, I fully understand why. The over-priced food is just not that good.
The meal started out well, with […]

Perilla Perilla, an herb that is a member of the mint family, and the name Harold Dieterle chose for his restaurant, is a welcomed addition to the NYC restaurant scene. While winning the first season of Top Chef guaranteed tons of press and a stream of people lining up to try Perilla, I believe that […]

Vegetarian Paradise 2

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

I’m not a vegetarian but every once in a while, I meet up with my vegetarian friend Emily for a meal, and to catch up. Today, we squeezed in a lunch in between her classes (she’s an NYU Law student) at Vegetarian Paradise 2 Vegetarian Paradise 2 .
Our waiter came over and asked if we […]

Ivo & Lulu

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

I really wanted to like Ivo & Lulu Ivo & Lulu. They had great reviews and low prices, especially for organic produce and free range game. I tried so hard to like this far, out-of-the-way spot, but by the end of the night, I couldn’t, and the other three girls didn’t seem interested in coming […]

Perry Street

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

We made sure to choose different items in order to sample more. […]
