Locanda Verde- always at the top of my list! I went there last night, and as always, I was in food heaven! You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. It just really depends on what you’re in mood for. We didn’t have too much to eat last night because we were headed to the Hennessy Artistry event, and had to leave room for our SIPS!
TIP: Make a ressie- it’s always packed. If you’re feeling daring, you can walk in and try to dine at the bar- but there’s a list for that too (check in with a bartender at either one of the bars and put your name down)
CHOW FAVES (from last night- I have too many to list): Mezze Rigatoni with lamb bolognese and Sea bass with mushrooms, greens and mashed potatoes (this was a special) – the flavors blended together so nicely- there was a party going on in my mouth.
Boutique Eat Shop (B.E.S.) is nestled in the heart of Chelsea- off the west side highway.
There’s no need to take a break from gallery hoping to grab a quick bite any more! You can have brunch or dinner while in gallery mode at B.E.S. Every where you turn there’s something cool and visually pleasing. They partnered with area galleries to create rotating installations.
A downtown restaurant housed in a cozy brownstone filled with charm- serving french dishes and small plates. We started with a carousel of small bites- the wedgette, BLT and deviled eggs with truffles. Then we feasted on scallops, chicken and sea bass. We even took a stab at dessert because the neighboring table seemed to be enjoying miniature ice cream sandwiches. We followed their lead- but I have to say it looked much better than it tasted. But don’t take my word for it because I’m really not a dessert person. I prefer savory over sweet.
This is also a great brunch spot!
