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.
And you know it doesn’t end with the main dining room, there’s a lounge downstairs to keep the good vibes and libations flowing. I wouldn’t go here for a culinary experience…it’s more for a fun night out.
I checked out Ken & Cook during private previews last week with a crew of good friends. It’s unanimous- this is a spot for the scene and cuisine!
The American Brasserie has a great vibe…the exposed brick, sleek bar display, airy feel, and downstairs lounge makes for Nolita’s latest HOT SPOT!
Richard Diamonte, a Jean-Georges alum (former executive sous-chef) delivers a wide-range of American classics with a unique touch. We had a tasting of the entire menu and I was impressed.
Out with the old (Acme) and in with the new (Acme)! Danish chef, Mads Refslund, who comes to us by way of Copenhagen (Noma- #1 restaurant in the world), constructed an amazing menu of unique and palate pleasing dishes dubbed new Nordic cuisine.
The candlelit, sexy Noho resto filled with good vibes and beauties delivers on all fronts. I loved the rare ingredients and unexpected pairings.
One part bar/lounge and one part resto equals The Churchill! Arriving close to 9p for a Girl’s Night Out pre-party meal, we quickly dove into a myriad of cocktails, and before we knew it yummy dishes were en route to our table. As soon as we downed the first round of oysters, the upstairs dining room was filled with party-goers ready for a good time grooving to beats from the DJ.
Don’t expect a gourmet meal at this modern gastropub….go for the DJ, cocktails and noshing!
