The Thirst: An Underground Wine Society- Thursday, 11/18
The pop-up theme culinary experience is hosted by Todd English. It’s a secret dinner and cocktail party where you have to make ressies online and wait for an email response.
The former chef from Cru- Shea Gallante, is back on the scene! Ciano opened a couple of weeks ago, and I was excited to try it.
The rustic Italian resto is elegant but still cozy. The wood burning fireplace is a nice touch, and fills the room with a sweet and smokey scent. The service was pretty good.
This is definitely a spot where there’s no separation between church and state (dinner and nightlife). It’s great when you want a cool and upbeat environment- and you can always go downstairs to SL (club/lounge) to take things up a notch. Be prepared for a Euro and B&T crowd on certain nights at SL.
Abe & Arthur’s serves typical American fare reminiscent of a steak house menu with a few surprises.
I usually go with a group (which they are totally equipped for) and we share everything.
Tuna Tartare Tacos: Fresh, crisp and tasty
Tipsy Parsons serves Southern comfort food (but no fried chicken) in a casual and cozy setting. It feels like you’re eating at a friend’s house. I definitely want to check it out for brunch.
Hotel Griffou is definitely one of my faves! I love the vibe, food and decor (every room has a different theme)! They have a new chef (David Santos) at the helm so I was excited to try the new menu…..and David didn’t disappoint! We enjoyed everything! Actually, we enjoyed it so much that I forgot to take pictures (I did manage to get a shot of our dessert a few bites in). Don’t worry- I’m due back next week for a business dinner so I’ll snap a few shots then, and add it to this post.
