Manhattan Brooklyn

Casual Dinner Spots

THE SPOTTED PIG ***
Whenever I’m in NY I go to this amazing spot.  No reservations and they serve until late.
TRY – Brussels Sprouts & Gnudi


THE LITTLE OWL
Great neighbourhood spot with even better food.



COMMERCE
-New Yorkers only… great atmosphere
TRY – Hen For two


BLUE RIBBON
It’s lost a little something in my opinion but who else serves Foie Gras Terrine until 4AM.

French Casual

MINETTA TAVERN
Scene, great food


BALTHAZAR
An establishment, great Brunch spot.  I like to walk in off the street and grab a seat at the bar.
TRY – Fruit de Mer

Italian (more to come)

IL MULINO
Worth going just for the antipasto table, ridiculous.

CAFE GITANE

Brunch

PRUNE ***
Amazing brunch, get there early.  It’s super small.

High End - (all restaurants below are pure decadence)

BLUE HILL ***
My favourite Chef and restaurant in Manhattan.

PER SE


DANIEL

Science

WD-50
One of only a few Chefs in the entire world who knows how to do it right, I hope his food
is coming out hot rather than warm.

Mexican

LA ESQUINA***
Great Vibe, make sure you make a reservation for “DOWNSTAIRS”.  You have to walk through the taco shop, and the kitchen to get to the dining room.  You might even see Jay-Z.

Cuban

Sure Cuban, more like Mexican but good.
TRY – Grilled Corn

Venezuelan

CARACAS AREPA BAR
Super authentic Venezuelan Arepas and Empanadas
TRY – Arepa and Empanada de Pabellon
