Tom Colicchio delivers waterfront dining starring locally sourced food at Riverpark. It’s located in a barren area that’s out of the way but it’s worth the trip.
The beautiful view of the East River really sets the tone for the elegant, modern and warm atmosphere. This beauty runs throughout all elements including the food. Riverpark has a romantic feel but it’s also good for big groups. The noise level is low so you can actually have a conversation.
The New American Menu delivers innovative dishes with Mediterranean influences and locally sourced ingredients- some from their very own Farm out front.
We had brunch outside on the charming terrace and it was wonderful. We brunched on unique and expertly prepared dishes that went beyond standard omelets and french toast.
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
Your tastebuds will thank you after dining at Ed Schoenfeld’s newest venture (backed by Jeffrey Chodorow) RedFarm- a Chinese/Dim Sum haven. Chef Joe Ng of Chinatown Brasserie delivers fun and inspiring Asian Cuisine in a rustic-chic, farm-like atmosphere.
The Glam Foodie- Tricia & Chef Joe Ng
Don’t let the causal decor fool you, the high-end, modern Chinese dishes are lively and unique stemming from local, high-quality ingredients. It was love at first bite! You’ll fall in love with the dumplings, dream about the rice/noodles, and long for the pastrami egg roll. Chef Joe Ng masterfully blends a symphony of flavors and textures in every dish. I can’t wait to go back!
Celeb sightings, gnudi, a bustling bar, pig-clad decor, and Jay-Z’s private 3rd floor space makes Ken Friedman’s hipster hangout- The Spotted Pig, a go-to gastropub!
The high energy, swanky, tavern-like resto continues to be a staple in NYC. Alex Bloomfield serves up sophisticated British/Italian food with a twist that keeps you coming back for more! Her focus is on delivering inventive English pub classics.
