Sant Ambroeus in the West Village has always been a lunch time go-to spot for me especially on a nice day because of the great outdoor seating. You can count on them for solid pasta dishes, yummy sweets (gelato and pastries), a perfect espresso and a touch of Italian glamour in a casual setting – and the same holds true for the original Upper East Side location. I recently went there for lunch following a morning at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum where I saw breathtaking pieces from the Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry exhibit.
Recette specializes in small plates with unique pairings and flavors for brunch and dinner. My girls and I hit up Recette for brunch last Sunday, and we welcomed the laid back feel.

A customizable treat: It’s gelato, sorbet or yogurt on a stick with or without toppings! There are lots of options in terms of flavors and toppings. I love this concept- it’s a great on-the-go option. It’s perfect for a snack or after dinner treat. There are so many great restaurants close by – Market Table, Bar Pitti, Da Silvano, Blue Ribbon Bakery, Aqua Grill, Ino, 10 Downing, Joe’s Pizza, John’s Pizza, Morandi, Ditch Plains, Pearl and more…..So you should grab a bite and top it off with a popbar!
