My friend Julie and I had dinner at The Lion with Chef John DeLucie last week. John is certainly taming the Lion! He has created an amazing restaurant off the heels of his time as executive chef at The Waverly Inn. John is an awesome guy and chef!
Dinner was filled with fabulous food, great conversation, scrumptious cocktails, and a celebration. John just opened his new resto in Miami-The Royal at The Raleigh Hotel. He’s bringing his down home American-style-fare to South Beach!
Every night at The Lion, it’s a ” who’s who” of celebs, and this night was no different. Fashion royalty was in the house- Calvin Klein and Carolina Herrera.
I sat down with my girl, Celebrity Stylist Crystal Streets to get the Foodie 411. It was hard to stay focused because we were catching up on so many things but I managed to still get a few questions in. Before we get to the food, let’s touch on fashion- Crystal just launched her new jewelry line- Lyra Love Star. I love it!
Here’s the Foodie 411…..Check out Crystal’s Sip, Chat, & Chow!
Tricia: What’s your favorite restaurant in NYC? And why?
I was first introduced to Katsuya in Studio City perched inside of a strip mall 6 or 7 years ago. It was love at first bite! From that point on, every trip to LA included a meal at Katsuya. I still go to the original Katsuya in Studio City but usually hit up the one in Hollywood.
The super trendy hipster resto is filled with energy. I love the vibe, decor, food, and cocktails. Katsuya offers a wide selection of sushi, cooked food, and specialty dishes. Most of which is pretty on point.
