Well if you have read this blog in the past then you know this dinning spot is not a normal eatery for me. I am mostly the dinner hot dog kinda guy. But I was invited for this very fine meal, and I was not going to miss this chance to dine along side the NY elite. First if you want to eat here you eather need to be a huge movie star (ok B list or at least have a TV show) but if you are none of those you can get on the month long waiting list or jsut walk in and take your chances. After you get past that you are in for a treat. The food was amazing now that is really hard for me to say because I am not a fan of Mario Batali on food network. They start you off with their 2373931619_3be10c4427
chickpea bruschetta Which was amazing. Then my main course was the Grilled Pork Chop with Cherry Peppers, Cipolline and Aceto Manodori $29 . I am a huge pork fan but this took me to a whole new place. This pork chop was cooked perfectly it just melted in my mouth. The Cherry Peppers that are spread over the top of the Pork chop mixed with this amazing ages Aceto Manodori. This  brings the flavor of the pork chop to the front with a quick sliding taste of cherry pepper spice.  Other dishes at the table that i have to mention would be Grilled Lamb Chops “Scottadita” with Sunchokes, Grilled Onions and Lemon Yogurt $29  If you are looking for the best tasting lamb in the city then you just found it.  One last dish then I am done. Pumpkin“Lune” with Sage and Amaretti $19
Then I ended my night with Assortment of Gelati and Sorbetti $11 Now I never pass up a chance to have a little Gelati and I was not going to leave here with out putting Mario’s to the test.05_momobabbo_lg Mind you I really don’t have many to compare his with but I can look past that if you can. And yet once again it was amazing (did I already use that word). Once again I have stepped out of my norm to try something new and now I am hooked. I think I need to put a call in so I can get a table by that time spring should be here.

I do have to say that it has been very hard to find a good fried chicken stop in the middle of NYC. But I think might have found one. At the end of a long night waiting in line to see a tree lite this place was a welcome suprise. Once you walk in to this place it gives you the feel of a lower east side dive. But don’t let the layout fool you the food here is something to write home about. OK back to the fried chicken that I ordered. The chicken was juicy with a very nice crispy outside, with a very southern after taste. A long side of my dream boat chicken I had a half of plate of any thing but healthy green beans. Trust me this place is not the healthy stop but its worth the extra 2 days at the gym. Live bait it a must stop in NYC.
