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.

For all of you who keep talking about Union Picnic need to stop. Union Picnic was a dirty place to eat. Jimmy’s is so much cleaner. Ok now down to business. The fried chicken is good but I would not say the best in Brooklyn that title still is held by Junior’s but don’t get me wrong it is good. The burgers are strange but 2 thumbs up on the effort. This for sure is a must stop by. Enjoy.

I am not one to eat out in the Trendy Parts of town, my whole thing is to find the spots that no one else has. I had to make an exception for this place. Ok I was there to see a soccer game. I will toss it out there – At first this looks like your normal I have money and I am here to meet over worked secretaires while my wife is taking care of my kids in Trenton. But I assure you it’s not, well not that I could see. Ok down to the good stuff. This was my first Run in with an Empanada, now mind I have had no others. I have to say it was like haveing sex for the second time, Yes I said second because we all no the first time sucked.  I had the Beef Empanada with a shirley temple (cute right) I will give this place a good review!!!!!! the food was amazing and at a good price, and I did not have to deal with the bullshit SOHO attitude. I would for sure go back.

Lets start off with the bad parts of this Lower East Side eater. Now that I think about there is only one. is the place is way to small and the second is the seating is way to close to each other. With that out of the way lets get to the goods. The Design of the place is amazing I think its is a work of art, you have a great feeling the second you walk in to the place. But the food is not as a good as the layout and desgin. But what can I say when my dinner and drink cost no more then $5.00 I am not really going to out this place down. This is the ideal match.com date spot, it looks high-end but with good pricing. The spot you can take several dates to and not go broke.

First and for most Rose is one of the best places in williamsburg brooklyn to see the live music from local talent. I have seen amazing acts there like The Pimps of Joytime, and the Hot 8 Brass band. But that’s not all that Rose is on the come up for. Yep it’s the food!!!! If you are looking a great date spot then look no further this little sexy place. Rose is in deed your stop for romance. The service is amazing and the food is on the level of a village city bistro, with out the NYC prices. I am going to have to recommend the Italian style Lasagna , not even Gordon Ramsey could put this dish down in his hells kitichen. But make sure to save room for the Spicy Chocolate Brownie. So get off your couch and turn off Lost and head to Rose for some good food and good music.
