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.
Out with the old (Acme) and in with the new (Acme)! Danish chef, Mads Refslund, who comes to us by way of Copenhagen (Noma- #1 restaurant in the world), constructed an amazing menu of unique and palate pleasing dishes dubbed new Nordic cuisine.
The candlelit, sexy Noho resto filled with good vibes and beauties delivers on all fronts. I loved the rare ingredients and unexpected pairings.
The Lower East Side has a new resident “hot spot” and it goes by the name of Sons of Essex. Don’t be confused when you approach the resto and a doorman in a fully functional deli greets you. Once you enter, all roads lead to a swanky, rustic, saloon-like speakeasy resto, lounge and bar. The decor is very reminiscent of a scene from HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”. The wooden pillars, old photos, and bookshelves stocked with knick-knacks, books and canisters generates a retro-den feel.
The vibe is amazing, and much of that can be attributed to the dope soundtrack. Hip Hop classics keeps the crowd grooving while noshing and sipping. They kick things up a notch Thursday through Saturday with a live DJ rocking from the pit (sunken lounge area).
The menu is filled with American comfort food classics such as grilled cheese, ribs, lobster pot pie and mac & cheese laced with global seasonings and a creative twist.
