I realized I didn’t have much of a selection of vegan/vegetarian options on Sip, Chat, Chow so I went straight to the source- my boss, Russell Simmons.
Ever wonder why Russell always looks so young, fit and healthy? Besides yoga, he credits his diet.
Check out his Vegan Sip, Chat, Chow!
In no particular order, these were my top 15 spots (well, really 17…a mix of old and new) to Sip, Chat, & Chow this year. I’m sure I’ll be taking most of them into 2011.
1- Scarpetta: There’s something for every palate.
Polenta with truffled mushrooms
2- A Michael White Double: Marea and Osteria Morini.
Marea-Elegant Italian seafood heaven!
Osteria Morini- Casual Italian spot with old-world decor- serving up Italian goodness for every meal.
3- Corsino: Inventive small and large Italian plates in a charming atmosphere with a solid wine list.
4- Hotel Griffou: Cool vibe, tasty cocktails, and good grub!
Butternut Squash Tagliolini
Caramel Banana Pudding
5- L’Artusi: You’ll love everything- the food, decor, wine list, and service.
Roasted Mushrooms: fried egg, pancetta, ricotta salata
Is it Oktoberfest? No….but let’s act like it is because these dogs and wieners are too good to pass up! The sausage and bratwurst bar from the folks at “Klee” offers a variety of classic and unique sausages.
They do a great job of pairing different mustards with the meat. For those of you who aren’t carnivores, there’s still a lil’ something for ya: pretzels, pickles, spinach and tofu dip, salads, and sweets.
This LES Build-Your-Own-Meal meatball spot is the best! It’s such a yummy concept.
Be prepared for a bit of a wait.
