As Madison Square Garden undergoes a makeover, there’s more than just suites, seats and concourses being upgraded. The world’s top chefs are taking their talents to the most iconic arena in world- MSG! The food offerings at The Garden are being glammed up by Chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Andrew Carmellini, restaurateur Drew Nieporent and Aquagrill’s chef and owner Jeremy Marshall. They have each created exclusive offerings as part of the new MSG Signature Collection available in The Garden beginning this Fall. NYC restaurants Carnegie Deli, Hill Country and Magnolia Bakery will also be a part of the new Garden menu.

I was excited to attend the tasting of MSG’s Signature Collection on Tuesday to try their new culinary offerings. After sampling all the dishes, I walked away very full and delighted. My favorites were the Chicken Hot Dog with Kim Chee and Spicy Mustard, Daily Burger with Bacon and Onion Jam, and The Lobster Shrimp Roll.

Simply Chicken from Jean-Georges- Chicken Hot Dog with Kim Chee and Spicy Mustard; Sliced Chicken Salad, Carrot- Miso Dressing; Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Asian Pears, Thai Mayonnaise (Housemade Pickles, Basil, Potato Chips).

Daily Burger from top restauranteur Drew Nieporent- Daily Burger with Cheese, Bacon & Onion Jam; Daily Burger with Green Tomato Relish; Daily Burger; French Fries.

Gabrielle Union has lots on the docket but still makes time to hang with friends and loved ones at some of her favorite spots in LA and Miami! She’s teaming up with Tyler Perry again to star in his upcoming film “Good Deeds”, out in February. And that’s all… “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man” hits theaters in April while Indie film “A Family Tree” is set to be released in the Spring. Seems like we’ll be seeing a lot of Gabby in 2012!

This quaint New American French Bistro nestled in the heart of the West Village is a great spot for brunch. Cafe Cluny’s charming demeanor along with a few staple dishes makes it a neighborhood favorite. Be prepared for a bit of a wait.

Avra should be your go-to if you’re in the mood for great fish and attentive service in an upbeat, chic environment.  The stylish resto in midtown features Greek favorites and Mediterranean specialties with a seafood focus. The two biggest draws for me are:

1. Al fresco dining

2. A wonderful selection of fresh fish on ice
