My friend and I headed to César Ramirez’s (Bouley Alum) eighteen-seat tasting restaurant in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn a couple of weeks ago. It’s Brooklyn’s only two Michelin-starred restaurant. Scoring a ressie wasn’t as easy as it usually is for me. I booked it 4 weeks in advance, and once confirmed, they send you an email with details on the $165 multi-course tasting prix fixe. You’re pre-charged 2 weeks before and sent a reminder closer to the date.

The casual, laid-back resto that’s attached to a gourmet grocery store focuses primarily on seafood. We indulged in a culinary feast- every course was unique. It was a terrific dining experience. The exceptional menu is heavily influenced by Japanese, Italian and French cuisine. I had a few favorites but overall it was one of the best meals I’ve had in quite some time. The courses were innovative- full of flavor, wonderful combinations, textures and quality ingredients. And the greatness didn’t end with the food – the chef, his staff, the china and cutlery were also stars. Everything was beautifully plated and in total sync. There was extreme attention to detail. Cutlery changed with the rotation of every dish, and was even chilled when serving the sorbet.

Restaurant and nightlife impresario Serge Becker (of La Esquina, Cafe Select and The Box) has done it again! He created yet another spot with a cool-ass vibe, and put a hipster spin on ethnic food. This time it’s Miss Lily’s in the West Village/Soho. The low-key, kitschy-chic resto specializes in modern Jamaican/Caribbean cuisine. The menu is filled with traditional Jamaican staples with a twist. The food is rich, flavorful and tasty.

Miss Lily’s is more than a restaurant, it’s a highly curated scene. The front room has a diner feel while the back room is more edgy. The walls are laced with reggae album covers and the corner houses a resident DJ spinning Reggae, Soca and Calypso.

I went to Miss Lily’s this past weekend and I was really digging the vibe. The apps and the soundtrack were the real winners here!

My twin sister is a Supervising Producer for the Nate Berkus Show. You must tune in- it’s your destination for living beautifully each day. We actually indulged in twin trickery late last year with Nate as the focus. We pulled off a pretty clever stunt and he was such a good sport about it.

Nate is a force to be reckoned with….he’s a design expert, NY Times best-selling author, Oprah’s favorite designer and host of his very own show! He’s an awesome guy with great taste. So, naturally I wanted to know all about his favorite NYC spots.
