My twin sister and I had our Birthday Bash in the lounge at Pop Burger in MEPA on Friday, March 18th. In true Glam Foodie fashion the night was filled with fabulous people, scrumptious snacks, cocktails, tasty treats and hot beats.

Corsino has a great atmosphere- it’s rustic and lively. I love having an option like this amongst the other MEPA restos. Sometimes you just want to grab a bite at a low-key neighborhood spot that has a cool vibe- and Corsino fits the bill!
The tasty Italian tapas and large plates are fantastic!
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
Scott Conant’s Meatpacking District Italian resto, Scarpetta offers food for every palate. He presents a high-end atmosphere without being stuffy. The dining room is always buzzing. Scarpetta is a beautiful space with amazing wine and terrific food. It’s always a worthwhile experience!
Scott found a formula and he’s sticking with it! He followed up New York’s success with opening Scarpetta in Toronto, Miami, Las Vegas, and LA.
