Your tastebuds will thank you after dining at Ed Schoenfeld’s newest venture (backed by Jeffrey Chodorow) RedFarm- a Chinese/Dim Sum haven. Chef Joe Ng of Chinatown Brasserie delivers fun and inspiring Asian Cuisine in a rustic-chic, farm-like atmosphere.
The Glam Foodie- Tricia & Chef Joe Ng
Don’t let the causal decor fool you, the high-end, modern Chinese dishes are lively and unique stemming from local, high-quality ingredients. It was love at first bite! You’ll fall in love with the dumplings, dream about the rice/noodles, and long for the pastrami egg roll. Chef Joe Ng masterfully blends a symphony of flavors and textures in every dish. I can’t wait to go back!
Celeb sightings, gnudi, a bustling bar, pig-clad decor, and Jay-Z’s private 3rd floor space makes Ken Friedman’s hipster hangout- The Spotted Pig, a go-to gastropub!
The high energy, swanky, tavern-like resto continues to be a staple in NYC. Alex Bloomfield serves up sophisticated British/Italian food with a twist that keeps you coming back for more! Her focus is on delivering inventive English pub classics.
This casual West Village urban fish shack delivers comfort food with a seafood focus and a bustling bar. A few things to note- breakfast items are served until 4p during the week, they’re open late night, the music is usually on point, and there seems to be a little something for everyone (even if you’re not a seafood lover). I haven’t tried the ditch dog or their Sunday Lobster Bake but it’s on my radar!
Dishin’ on where your favorite celebs are eating……
Da Silvano- Rihanna hitting up one of her favorite Italian restos.
Co- Martha Stewart dining on thin crust pizza.
Spice Market- Hugh Jackman, Heather Graham and Jean Georges celebrating their new show Kimchi Chronicles.
Sant Ambroeus in the West Village has always been a lunch time go-to spot for me especially on a nice day because of the great outdoor seating. You can count on them for solid pasta dishes, yummy sweets (gelato and pastries), a perfect espresso and a touch of Italian glamour in a casual setting – and the same holds true for the original Upper East Side location. I recently went there for lunch following a morning at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum where I saw breathtaking pieces from the Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry exhibit.
