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!

Only in MePa could you find a resto stocked with wine-filled vending machines. Vinatta Project (Mulberry Project’s sister resto) delivers Haute vibes! It’s perfect for large groups.

Even though I was a die-hard Florent fan, Vinatta Project doesn’t disappoint as the new resident of the space. There’s a wonderful selection of creative small plates (great for sharing) and divine cocktails crafted by skilled mixologists. They ask you what you like, and create an original cocktail for you.

Pylos is super cute and cozy! I really love the vibe, food and ceiling of clay pots! Pylos delivers a collection of traditional Greek classics along with a few creative dishes in a cool environment in the East Village.

Make a ressie, or take a chance and you might score a spot at the communal table.

Twinning in the New Year at Buddakan. We feasted on a series of well conceived dishes (fish, chicken, shrimp, steak, duck, rice, noodles, dim sum and more!) and tasty cocktails by Hennessy.
