I always have a great time at L’Artusi- it’s one of my FAVES! I also adore their sister restaurant- Dell’anima. Both are spots you must visit!!!!
The seasonal Italian menu has a few essentials and some creative dishes. I usually go with a group so we start off by sharing a few of the small to medium plates, then dive into our entrees. There are so many great things on the menu that my CHOW FAVES are going to look like I included the entire menu.
The Lion opened up about 5 months ago with celeb chef John DeLucie (from the Waverly Inn) at the helm.
I’ve been to the Lion about half a dozen times and always have a great experience. The bar is usually packed with a lot of suits, and as you descend upon the dining room, you quickly see that it’s not all about the suits….it’s about the celebs.
CELEB SIGHTINGS: Janet Jackson, Cindy Crawford, Leo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, John Mayer and more!
And there’s more eye candy….You can marvel at Basquiat’s “Rome Pays Off”!
A downtown restaurant housed in a cozy brownstone filled with charm- serving french dishes and small plates. We started with a carousel of small bites- the wedgette, BLT and deviled eggs with truffles. Then we feasted on scallops, chicken and sea bass. We even took a stab at dessert because the neighboring table seemed to be enjoying miniature ice cream sandwiches. We followed their lead- but I have to say it looked much better than it tasted. But don’t take my word for it because I’m really not a dessert person. I prefer savory over sweet.
This is also a great brunch spot!
