I SAT DOWN WITH BROOKLYN’S OWN, CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED MC, TALIB KWELI (STRAIGHT OFF HIS FAVORABLE MENTION IN JAY-Z’S “DECODED”), AND GOT THE SCOOP ON HIS FAVORITE NYC RESTO, ULTIMATE DINNER PLAYLIST, AND MORE! CHECK OUT MY EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW.
This is definitely a spot where there’s no separation between church and state (dinner and nightlife). It’s great when you want a cool and upbeat environment- and you can always go downstairs to SL (club/lounge) to take things up a notch. Be prepared for a Euro and B&T crowd on certain nights at SL.
Abe & Arthur’s serves typical American fare reminiscent of a steak house menu with a few surprises.
I usually go with a group (which they are totally equipped for) and we share everything.
Tuna Tartare Tacos: Fresh, crisp and tasty
Hotel Griffou is definitely one of my faves! I love the vibe, food and decor (every room has a different theme)! They have a new chef (David Santos) at the helm so I was excited to try the new menu…..and David didn’t disappoint! We enjoyed everything! Actually, we enjoyed it so much that I forgot to take pictures (I did manage to get a shot of our dessert a few bites in). Don’t worry- I’m due back next week for a business dinner so I’ll snap a few shots then, and add it to this post.
The Lion opened up about 5 months ago with celeb chef John DeLucie (from the Waverly Inn) at the helm.
I’ve been to the Lion about half a dozen times and always have a great experience. The bar is usually packed with a lot of suits, and as you descend upon the dining room, you quickly see that it’s not all about the suits….it’s about the celebs.
CELEB SIGHTINGS: Janet Jackson, Cindy Crawford, Leo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, John Mayer and more!
And there’s more eye candy….You can marvel at Basquiat’s “Rome Pays Off”!
I had a double dose of sushi on Friday- and believe me, I was in heaven!
It all started with a late lunch at Nobu with all the usual suspects- yellowtail jalapeno, miso cod, rock shrimp tempura in creamy spicy sauce, sashimi salad, sushi (spicy tuna, yellowtail and eel rolls) and mochi ice cream.
After lunch, I headed back to the office to bang out a few things, and at about 8p I headed over to Koi.
