Spaghetti Carbonara pancetta & sunny side egg $16 ♥♥♥1/2
Happy Sunday everyone :) I blogged about dinner at Caffe Storico when they first opened three year ago ( read more about Stylish dinner at Museum ). Caffè Storico is in the New York Historical Society located on Upper West Side. Me and my friend had a plan to visit at American Museum of Natural History across the street from restaurant so last minutes we decided to have a brunch before museum. As soon as I walked in I got smile on my face :) Because restaurant was just as lovely as I remembered from three years ago! Pure white walls, super high-ceilinged with brass chandelier, lemon yellow banquettes, a window into the sculpture arcade, open kitchen and a marble table, nineteenth-century china from museum collection adorn shelves with victorian-style woodwork that soar 15 feet to the ceiling. Me and my friend started our brunch with cocktail. I had a ”Dante” in Martini glass (grey goose vodka, averna, blood orange). My cocktail was good but my friend had a better cocktail called ”Bellini Stagionale” (prosecco, bacardi limon, strawberry, mint). This place is known for pasta so we ordered Spaghetti Carbonara pancetta & sunny side egg. WOW! What a great idea to serve Carbonara for brunch! Also we had NY Strip Steak & Eggs roast potato & mixed greens. Steak was over cooked and disappointed us little bit but atmosphere and vibe of place made it up to us BIG time! I highly recommend you to come here for brunch if you’re planing to visit UWS.
Ps – I don’t come to UWS often so I decided to take full advantage after museum! I enjoyed walking through Central Park and enjoyed cocktail at stopping by Tavern On The Green and end my night at Cafe Boulud for dinner. #LovelySunday
Bucket Dish NYC! $35 DB Burger at ”DB Bistro Moderne”
French fries told Burger ”Lean On Me Boo! You’re My BFF :)
DB Bistro Moderne is one of Chef Daniel Boulud’s contemporary French bistro restaurant with modern American twist. Restaurant is located on 44 street, a few blocks off Times Square in Midtown. Lunchtime was filled with the typical corporate midtown lunchtime crowd. During weekday between 11:15am-2:30pm they serves $32 two courses lunch Prix Fixe. I was here for patrolling their famous original DB burger. This burger is on ”Bucket Dish NYC” You know what that mean!!!! You MUST eat this burger before you die!!! I heard about this burger for a while but I wan’t interested to try one. Seriously!? Come On! $35 for burger!? I thought….. but I’m so glad I finally checked it off from my coronary Bucket List. I shared burger with Liz a.k.a Personalitini and let me tell you! Burger was perfect medium rare and I could taste full flavor of Foie Gras & Black Truffle. It was worth every penny. Also we shared pasta and dessert. . I’m so not dessert girl but WOW! WARM CHOCOLATE FONDANT – Vanilla Ice Cream, Dark Chocolate Sorbet was the best warm chocolate cake I ever had. Well done :)
Dirty French is now open for lunch! I had Lamb burger and dry aged beef sandwich to share with friend. Both dishes were just OK but flatbread was warm and delish. I also highly recommend you to try Grilled oysters! This dish was O.M.G the best grilled oyster I ever had in my life! I’m just warning you it was very very garlicky! Atmosphere was lovely at lunchtime :) I would love to try Lamb Carpaccio from dinner menu next time.
