Empellón is hipster meets foodie, serving upscale-ish Mexican treats in a sexy and boisterous setting, with a pretty cool playlist rocking in the background.
Asparagus Salad- Standard.
Octopus with Parsnip and Salsa Papanteca topped with Pumpkin Seeds, Chipotle and Arbol Chiles - A good blend of textures and flavors- nutty.
It’s been a while since I’ve had such an amazing dining experience. The food was fantastic! Chef Daniel Humm (formerly of Eleven Madison Park) exhibits an awesome display of inventive and well executed dishes. The service and decor were equally impressive.
We had the pleasure of dining in the Parlour which is off to the side of the atrium and lively bar area. It was dark and sexy with red textured fabrics, and perfectly lit.

John Dory (in the Ace Hotel from April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman) is a seafood lovers playground. I love the unique pairings and flawless preparations set in this casual gastropub. The inventive tapas style menu compliments the layout, seating and quirky decor.
Come prepared for a wait because they don’t take ressies.
A diverse menu, great wine list and a low key vibe is what I experience every time I go to Tarallucci e Vino. It’s good for breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner, and is centrally located in the heart of Union Square. The chef delivers a robust Italian menu made up of small and large plates filled with gems for every meal.
La Promenade des Anglais is a great addition to Chelsea. The Mediterranean-French bistro-style resto delivers on all levels- a creative menu, wonderful service, and fashionable decor. Dinner here is definitely reminiscent of an evening on the French Riviera. There’s a heavy presence of elegance and glossy style.
A cocktail at the bar is a must- even if it’s just to admire the design. The journey will continue from there once you’re seated and begin to feast on dishes with interesting blends and preparations.
