In no particular order, these were my top 15 spots (well, really 17…a mix of old and new) to Sip, Chat, & Chow this year. I’m sure I’ll be taking most of them into 2011.
1- Scarpetta: There’s something for every palate.
Polenta with truffled mushrooms
2- A Michael White Double: Marea and Osteria Morini.
Marea-Elegant Italian seafood heaven!
Osteria Morini- Casual Italian spot with old-world decor- serving up Italian goodness for every meal.
3- Corsino: Inventive small and large Italian plates in a charming atmosphere with a solid wine list.
4- Hotel Griffou: Cool vibe, tasty cocktails, and good grub!
Butternut Squash Tagliolini
Caramel Banana Pudding
5- L’Artusi: You’ll love everything- the food, decor, wine list, and service.
Roasted Mushrooms: fried egg, pancetta, ricotta salata
The Strip House is one of my favorites. I love the burlesque-themed decor designed by David Rockwell! It’s definitely a departure from the traditional steak house. The red lighting and tone makes it fun and sexy! It’s a top notch steakhouse that’s a bit more trendy than your father’s steak house. The seats are pretty close together but the red velvet-covered walls and cozy booths make up for it.
The Strip House offers a great package- ambiance, tasty sides and apps, and great steak!
