I caught up with recording artist and Broadway star CHESTER GREGORY last week, and discovered that he’s quite the foodie. He’s currently starring in Whoopi Goldberg’s production of Sister Act as Officer Eddie Southers.

Chester recently wrapped up the National Tour of “Dreamgirls” the musical, where he received rave reviews for his portrayal of “James ‘Thunder’ Early”. The role won him a “Best Actor” award from Broadway World and a “Best Actors This Year” mention in the NY Post. He’s currently in the studio working on his sophomore release, writing with Dot Da Genius. This will be the highly anticipated follow up to his debut album entitled- “In Search of High Love”, which earned praise by Billboard Magazine as “An album of integrity and soul”.

Recette specializes in small plates with unique pairings and flavors for brunch and dinner. My girls and I hit up Recette for brunch last Sunday, and we welcomed the laid back feel. The cozy, quaint resto offers novel brunch options and good desserts from a Per Se alum. We didn’t get to try the Burrata Grilled Cheese or PB&J but it’s on my list for next time.

The sustainable seafood resto from former Top Chef contestant Sam Talbot is now open in the Mondrian Hotel in Soho. There are 2 dining rooms- and both are magnificent. The garden room makes you feel as though you walked into a fairytale while the back dining room is more modern. The place is gorgeous and stacked with chandeliers. And it’s not just about the looks here- the food and service are on point!

The menu is filled with seafood goodies that are meant to be shared. We were impressed with most of the dishes, and dessert was the cherry on top! Talbot delivers the classics and stuns you with an innovative spin on seafood fare (along with non-seafood and veggie options).

It was a stylish scene- the crowd was comprised of a mix of hotel guests, jet-setters, hipsters and cool peeps within a broad age range. And after dinner, a select few usually head next door to the opulent asian-inspired lounge- Mister H.
