Is it Oktoberfest? No….but let’s act like it is because these dogs and wieners are too good to pass up! The sausage and bratwurst bar from the folks at “Klee” offers a variety of classic and unique sausages.

They do a great job of pairing different mustards with the meat. For those of you who aren’t carnivores, there’s still a lil’ something for ya: pretzels, pickles, spinach and tofu dip, salads, and sweets.

The Strip House is one of my favorites. I love the burlesque-themed decor designed by David Rockwell! It’s definitely a departure from the traditional steak house. The red lighting and tone makes it fun and sexy! It’s a top notch steakhouse that’s a bit more trendy than your father’s steak house. The seats are pretty close together but the red velvet-covered walls and cozy booths make up for it.

The Strip House offers a great package- ambiance, tasty sides and apps, and great steak!

Maialino is another Danny Meyer’s production. The Italian resto located in the Gramercy Park hotel is casual and lively. The service and food are top notch. There’s a big emphasis on Pork here- it’s at the heart of the menu.

I sat down with my girl, Celebrity Stylist Crystal Streets to get the Foodie 411. It was hard to stay focused because we were catching up on so many things but I managed to still get a few questions in. ;)  Before we get to the food, let’s touch on fashion- Crystal just launched her new jewelry line- Lyra Love Star. I love it!

Here’s the Foodie 411…..Check out Crystal’s Sip, Chat, & Chow!

Scott Conant’s Meatpacking District Italian resto, Scarpetta offers food for every palate. He presents a high-end atmosphere without being stuffy. The dining room is always buzzing. Scarpetta is a beautiful space with amazing wine and terrific food. It’s always a worthwhile experience!

Scott found a formula and he’s sticking with it! He followed up New York’s success with opening Scarpetta in Toronto, Miami, Las Vegas, and LA.
