When our friend Tora Matsuoka gave us a call to let us know that his space that housed our beloved SEN has reopened and is now a new concept called KOA, we quickly put on our suits and headed straight over. As soon as we entered KOA, Tora said, “I have someone I want you to meet” and were whisked into the dining room where Tora graciously introduced us to ‘Iron Chef Japan’ Yuji Wakiya! Wakiya is a culinary legend in Japan and has become famous for cooking Chinese cuisine. This is where we learned that Wakiya is the man behind the unbelievable menu and cuisine of KOA.
With so many great Italian restaurants in NYC, it’s not easy to stand out. This is a ‘Table’ that will never forget! Tavola is the quintessential Italian eatery that you wished was in your neighborhood. The deliberate honesty of Nick Accardi’s downright spectacular take on regional Italian dishes, is what will make Tavola your go to Italian table.
Nick has a encyclopedic depth of knowledge about the food he is crafting and after a few minutes of him talking about it, you will quickly understand that Nick is no ordinary restauranteur. Nick is one of the most passionate and dynamic people we have ever come across. His intensity and love for the food that he is serving is contagious. If your not salivating after talking to Nick about what to eat, your probably dead!
Bold. Fresh. Extraordinary. Recette is all of this and more. Fine dining in NYC will take a lesson from this small eatery delivering an experience that sets a new standard. Ten courses of culinary bliss while Foo Fighters is rocking the playlist in the dining room…yes friends, this is simply badass! Jesse Schenker is living up to his new book titled “All or Nothing” as Recette delivers it all.
Recette is the type of restaurant that we love to dine at. It’s an intimate experience in which you feel connected to what’s going on at the restaurant. From the moment you enter the restaurant you feel as if your at a friends house ready to break bread with family. There is a wonderful vibe that the service staff brings to the table along with a deep knowledge of the menu and beverage program. This casual elegance and warmth sets the tone for the extraordinary cuisine that rocked our world!
