Went to Resto last night for Restaurant Week dinner last night. I didn’t take many pics, but my favorite things I ate last night were the deviled eggs on top of a pig toast and the Beignets with chocolate sauce. The Beignets are even tastier dipped in coffee! The deviled eggs are from their regular menu and they are just divine. It’s the best combination of food you could ever put together to make a deviled egg. Definitely worth a visit. The food is great!

epistrophy

Stumbled upon this Wine Bar/Italian Cafe yesterday in Nolita area. Small and intimate with great atmosphere and outdoor seating.  Had some tasty artichoke ravoli with a pesto sauce.  Started with a delicious Cheese & Vegetable platter (chose the small, but they come in Med. and Large w/variations of Cheese & Fruit or Cheese & Meat.  Food is reasonably priced with large wine selection.  Nice casual place to drop into if you are in the area and need a break.

bomboloni

Little pillows of deliciousness are what these are. While trying to feed a donut craving, found this place called, Bomboloni, that sells little donuts of the same name. Bomboloni are Italian filled donuts topped with powdered sugar. My favorites are the Strawberry, Creme Brulee, Apple, and Raspberry.  Other flavors include Valrhona Chocolate, Traditional, etc.  They are $1 a piece or half-dozen for $5.  Yummy and well worth it.  A must try, you won’t regret it.  There are also other goodies there so check them out!

a salt & battery: fish & chips

I love love love fish and chips. Finally stopped in and ate at this tasty place I always pass by when i’m in the area.  Love the name – “A Salt & Battery”.  Tried the Sea Bass and Sole (with chips of course!).  Everything was delish and perfect!  I will definitely be going back.  If you love fish and chips, check this place out.  Fun sightings: Ballot from Bobby’s Flay’s Throwdown on the Food Network on the wall and a poster for deep fried Cadbury Eggs for Easter weekend.  (Melissa, you are probably the only one I know who might be willing to try those deep friend Cadbury eggs.  I know how much you love Cadbury eggs!!)

alice’s tea cup

This is the best little place ever! Alice’s Tea Cup in the Upper West Side has the best tea selection, scones, and food in general. I had the french toast for brunch (1st pic) and it was some of the best french toast I’ve ever had. For tea, had the Silver Needle Jasmine tea which was sooo aromatic and tasty. It complimented the buttermilk scone and raspberry with chocolate scone very nicely. The scones really were the best–so buttery and soft and perfect. This place really has turned the novel idea of a tea party into a great experience with delicious tea and scrumptious goodies. I saw groups with towers of scones, sandwiches, & cupcakes and other yummy things accompanied by pots of tea. Alice in Wonderland is inspiration for this little teahouse/restaurant/cafe/place. I can definitely see myself coming back here for a great cup of tea and scone or anything else on the menu. It’s so relaxing inside that you really could lose yourself in there for a few hours. It’s great. A must try. The tea party is not for little girls anymore! There were more than plenty of adults in here enjoying themselves.

restaurant week_mesa grill

Ate at Bobby Flay’s Restaurant, Mesa Grill for restaurant week.  The restaurant serves southwestern food.  My dishes of choice were a salmon tartare appetizer (2nd pic), grilled mahi mahi w/risotto entree (1st pic), and for dessert pineapple upside down cake with vanilla ice cream.  Everything was delicious!  Great choice for restaurant week.

restaurant week_nyc

Restaurant week NYC starts next week!  Get your reservations in online at their website.  Reduced rates at typically expensive restaurants is always great thing.  I’ve gotten to try restaurants that I couldn’t typically enjoy except on a splurge for a special occasion.  January 25-February 7, 2010.  Check it out.
