Recette specializes in small plates with unique pairings and flavors for brunch and dinner. My girls and I hit up Recette for brunch last Sunday, and we welcomed the laid back feel. The cozy, quaint resto offers novel brunch options and good desserts from a Per Se alum. We didn’t get to try the Burrata Grilled Cheese or PB&J but it’s on my list for next time.
The sustainable seafood resto from former Top Chef contestant Sam Talbot is now open in the Mondrian Hotel in Soho. There are 2 dining rooms- and both are magnificent. The garden room makes you feel as though you walked into a fairytale while the back dining room is more modern. The place is gorgeous and stacked with chandeliers. And it’s not just about the looks here- the food and service are on point!
The menu is filled with seafood goodies that are meant to be shared. We were impressed with most of the dishes, and dessert was the cherry on top! Talbot delivers the classics and stuns you with an innovative spin on seafood fare (along with non-seafood and veggie options).
It was a stylish scene- the crowd was comprised of a mix of hotel guests, jet-setters, hipsters and cool peeps within a broad age range. And after dinner, a select few usually head next door to the opulent asian-inspired lounge- Mister H.
Yummy Asian-Fusion comfort food in a diner-like atmosphere. The food is tasty and inexpensive- you can’t go wrong!
This is a timely post since Conde Nast just ranked Brooklyn one of the world’s 15 best places to visit!
L&B Spumoni Gardens is a Brooklyn institution! Brooklynites and people from all over flock to L&B for their crispy, slightly sweet sauce that lays on top of the cheese square slice. I’ve loved it since I was a kid growing up in Brooklyn, and it’s still one of my faves. PS- You can top it off with Spumoni ice cream or an Italian ice.
L&B Spumoni Gardens- 2725 86th St., Brooklyn, NY 11223 / 718-449-1230
