I caught up with my girl Amber the other day when she was in New York and got her Sip, Chat, Chow! We had a lot to talk about because she has so much going on! She’s in talks with VH1 about a reality show, just signed on to be a part of the Foxxhole team- hosting a weekly radio show on Sirius XM, and so much more. It’s great to see her doing her thing. Congrats, QT! You deserve it all!
Amber loves to cook for her friends and family but when she’s ready for a night out- here are her favorite spots!
Check out Amber’s Sip, Chat, Chow :
The upbeat and bustling dining room at Lavo is fully stocked with lively peeps (a mix of old and young), a resident DJ and a vivacious vibe. The energy in the room is just as big as the menu. You’ll find Italian standards like Baked Clams, Chicken Parm, Pasta, Steak and Pizza. The food is good, and the club downstairs gets poppin’! All and all, Lavo is a good midtown option. I’ve been to Lavo many times and it never disappoints (the kitchen stays open till 1a and 3a on the weekend)!
We went to Lavo last night with Milwaukee Bucks Guard Brandon Jennings and he loved the food and atmosphere.
Sara Jenkins (of Porchetta) is focused on pasta at her new resto Porsena, and it paid off! Most of the pasta dishes are fab! Porsena is an affordable neighborhood spot with a casual and warm atmosphere. I love the exposed brick and homey feel. The food is simple yet delicious.
