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.

Danny Meyers and Chef Floyd Cardoz have taken their talents to the southern tip of Manhattan- Battery Park City. North End Grill is a casual, open, chic, modern resto stocked with a stylish dining room, vibrant bar area and open kitchen. The vibe and aesthetic lends itself to business lunches/dinners, gatherings for locals, and weekend brunch.
The American menu with eclectic and classic options delivers flavorful and skillfully prepared dishes. I was a big fan of the egg section. It’s worth a visit if you’re in the area.
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.
