The First Annual Restaurant Week is on at
Take the elevator to the forth floor, don’t ask too many questions and be prepared to be transported into another world. Not sure if we want to even share our new found secret hideaway with you, but as you know, this is what we do. The newly opened Z Bar on the rooftop of Stage 48 has taken Euro-Latin cuisine to a whole new level. In a very sexy space in which big flavors collide with an unbeatable view, Z Bar is the place to be. Under the direction of Executive Chef Gonzalo Colin and Chef Consultant Ricardo Cardona, the food at Z Bar is nothing less than stellar.
A huge congratulations to Jonathan Waxman for 10 years of incredible food and fabulous memories at Barbuto. Ten years is a major milestone for any restauranteur, but to achieve that mark in New York City is monumental. Over the years we have had some of the best meals of our lives at Barbuto and have had the privilege of working with Jonathan on several charities that he is involved with. Not only is Jonathan a true legend and culinary visionary, he is a humble, generous and a man of character.
We will just come out and say it, Sotto 13 is incredible! You all know by now that we have an insane passion for Italian cuisine, and if you don’t, you must be living under a rock. That being said, we are all very lucky that our friend Chef Ed Cotton is now at the helm of a very cool Italian restaurant in the West Village, Sotto 13. Ed’s culinary pedigree is as good as it gets and as soon as we heard that he is now doing Italian, “His way”, you know we had to check it out.
Finally! We have all waited anxiously since the opening of Chef Bill Telepan’s namesake eatery on the Upper West Side for him to venture out and open a second restaurant. Thankfully, the wait is now over and our prayers have been answered with the opening of his American Tapas spot in Tribeca, Telepan Local. All we can say now is, Thank You! If you are a Telepan enthusiast as we are, Telepan Local will certainly make you very happy. If you have not yet experienced the food of this amazing chef, you are in for a major treat!
At the age of 24, Steve DiFillippo, purchased a locally-owned family restaurant called Davio’s on Newbury Street in Boston’s trendy Back Bay. Since that day in 1985, Davio’s has grown into several locations across Massachusetts, Philly, Atlanta and now thankfully New York! Coming into New York City for any restaurant is a major challenge, as now you are playing with the big boys. Davio’s can certainly play with the best of them. This is no ordinary steakhouse by any means. Davio’s is routed deeply in regional Italian cuisine and delivers with high execution on the food you want to eat.
