My twin sister and I went to an old friend’s birthday dinner on Saturday night at En Japanese Brasserie. I’m glad the festivities took place there because I was reintroduced to the modern and airy Japanese resto. I hadn’t been there in over 2 years. The night was filled with great conversations, cool peeps, terrific food and wonderful service.
En Japanese Brasserie is more than meets the eye. When you take time to review the menu you see that this authentic Japanese eatery has a very broad appeal. If you’re vegan, a vegetarian, in the mood for sushi or even fried chicken- they have it covered! There wasn’t anything I tried that I didn’t like.
The elegant yet laid back resto delivers creative and tasty tapas-style Japanese dishes in a unique setting. The open kitchen adds a level of excitement to the main dining room, and if you want something a bit more intimate, they have tatami rooms that are tucked away in the back.
En will definitely be added to my Japanese resto rotation. And the next time I go I’ll try the tofu!
The sustainable seafood resto from former Top Chef contestant Sam Talbot is now open in the Mondrian Hotel in Soho. There are 2 dining rooms- and both are magnificent. The garden room makes you feel as though you walked into a fairytale while the back dining room is more modern. The place is gorgeous and stacked with chandeliers. And it’s not just about the looks here- the food and service are on point!
The menu is filled with seafood goodies that are meant to be shared. We were impressed with most of the dishes, and dessert was the cherry on top! Talbot delivers the classics and stuns you with an innovative spin on seafood fare (along with non-seafood and veggie options).
It was a stylish scene- the crowd was comprised of a mix of hotel guests, jet-setters, hipsters and cool peeps within a broad age range. And after dinner, a select few usually head next door to the opulent asian-inspired lounge- Mister H.
I caught up with my girl Amber the other day when she was in New York and got her Sip, Chat, Chow! We had a lot to talk about because she has so much going on! She’s in talks with VH1 about a reality show, just signed on to be a part of the Foxxhole team- hosting a weekly radio show on Sirius XM, and so much more. It’s great to see her doing her thing. Congrats, QT! You deserve it all!
Amber loves to cook for her friends and family but when she’s ready for a night out- here are her favorite spots!
