I went to see Prince last night at MSG….he was amazing!
Prince at MSG 12/29/10
After the show, we went to Schiller’s for noshing and cocktails.
Schiller’s Liquor Bar
CHOW FAVES of the evening: Oysters, Fries, Sliders, and Sticky Toffee Pudding.
SIP: Champagne and Cocktails.
A friend we were with is friends with Adrien Brody so he joined us, and I happened to be sitting right next to him at our table at Schiller’s. He’s a great guy. You know I had to get the Foodie 411 before the night was over, and I did! Here are a few restos Adrien spoke highly of….BTW- I’m in total agreement with his picks.
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
This LES Build-Your-Own-Meal meatball spot is the best! It’s such a yummy concept.
Be prepared for a bit of a wait.
