CHOW FAVES of the evening: Oysters, Fries, Sliders, and Sticky Toffee Pudding.
SIP: Champagne and Cocktails.
A friend we were with is friends with Adrien Brody so he joined us, and I happened to be sitting right next to him at our table at Schiller’s. He’s a great guy. You know I had to get the Foodie 411 before the night was over, and I did! Here are a few restos Adrien spoke highly of….BTW- I’m in total agreement with his picks.
Rice – features dishes from around the world with rice as a common thread. It’s a cozy and casual spot with friendly service. The food is healthy with good subtle flavors.
MY CHOW FAVES:
Vegetarian Meatballs – Moist and savory balls of Tofu, Miso, Soy, Scallions and Red Peppers- offered in a Sweet or Spicy Sauce, served over rice.
Jerk Chicken Wings- Juicy with a slight crisp.
Public for brunch- Offering a great mix of sweet and savory dishes on the brunch menu. The food is fantastic- unique, flavorful, and presented well.
MY CHOW FAVES for brunch:
Tea-Smoked Salmon Eggs Benny- Delectable….particularly the yuzu hollandaise.
Quinoa Hash Browns- Surprisingly delicious!
One thing to add that Adrien Brody put me on to… The space The Lion’s housed in was one of the first spots in NYC to get a liquor license.
