It’s mostly about “THE SIP” in this post. I went to the ultra-charming new cocktail lounge, Weather Up in Tribeca on Monday night. I’m glad this Brooklyn-born spot decided to cross the bridge. When you first walk in, to the right is the bar, and part of it is laced with all the fixin’s for a mixologist to get busy. The spot isn’t small but definitely has a personal feel. You almost feel like you’re hanging out at a friend’s apartment.
Morimoto provides a great dining experience! I love everything about it….
-The modern and sleek decor
-Creative and tasty food
-A vast selection of cooked food and sushi/sashimi
-The cool and upbeat atmosphere
I have so many Chow Faves but I’ll try to restrain, and list my absolute Faves!
Spicy King Crab- It’s like crack. You can’t get enough. The tobanjan ailoi is terrific.
I had dinner at Kenmare during opening week (late March), and have been back a few times since. It’s an elegant and modern spot, and so is the crowd! The food is pretty good but they seem to be focused more on the scene.
Featuring a new american menu- my CHOW FAVES are:
This is definitely a spot where there’s no separation between church and state (dinner and nightlife). It’s great when you want a cool and upbeat environment- and you can always go downstairs to SL (club/lounge) to take things up a notch. Be prepared for a Euro and B&T crowd on certain nights at SL.
Abe & Arthur’s serves typical American fare reminiscent of a steak house menu with a few surprises.
I usually go with a group (which they are totally equipped for) and we share everything.
Tuna Tartare Tacos: Fresh, crisp and tasty
The Donald’s new hotel condo houses Quattro Gastronomia. I checked it out in late April. The Soho Italian resto definitely had a cool and sleek feel with columns and mirrored tiles. The food was tasty and full of bold flavors…….sorry I can’t say the same about the crowd. It’s still early (remember this was reviewed in April) so I’m sure Quattro will begin to establish a more consistent clientele.
CHOW FAVES: The notable dishes were the main lobster salad, fontina ravioli, seared turbot and tuna w. salsa verde
SIP: Terrific wine selection
THE SWEET SPOT: We topped things off with light and fluffy doughnuts with various fillings.
CHAT: BTW- The chef is an identical twin! They worked together at their Miami outpost but split up to open the NYC location. Also, check out the outdoor space- Bar D’eau (it’s closed for the season now because it’s too chilly).
