The cocktail list is exactly what I'm into - innovative with an appropriate use of fresh herbs and ingredients.
|Summer in Provence with gin, blackberries, rosemary thyme syrup, and lime juice|
|A trio of crostini: Fig and Prosciutto, Truffled Mushroom with artichoke, and copa with goat cheese and honey|
|Nightly selection of olive oils, three ceviches: branzino, shrimp, and tuna tartar|
|Chicken with seasonal vegetables|
|Branzino with figs and snow peas|
|Paella with shrimp and scallops|
|And the dish with the best presentation: Striped Bass Papillote|
|The reveal: sans papillote!|
As I mentioned, we were very pleased with the food and ambiance, but for someone who loves celeb sightings, especially reality star sightings: the goods were delivered! Tyra Banks walked in with a group of about 5, soon followed by Nigel Lithgow and his party of 4. Lastly, and the most exciting, some of Bravo's creme de la creme rolled in: Patti Stanger, Bobby and Jill Zarin, and a mystery man- let the speculation begin! This girl couldn't have been happier!
