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.
Casa Mono is a Michelin one star restaurant located on the east side of Union Square at Irving Place (on the corner of 18th St. & 17th St.) This restaurant has been one of my favorite tapas places in New York for a long time. They serve many interesting tapas. However, if you are expecting one of those regular Italian or Spanish tapas restaurants, then this is not the place for you. I call it a tapas wine bar because everything is smaller in portion, yet the price is on the high side. I would consider each dish to be more like an appetizer with an entree price point. Make sure you try everything and order a bunch of different dishes with your group of friends. You will probably get a big bill, but each dish is so unique and delicious that you will walk away with one big, happy smile. :) If you are on a date night, I recommend that you sit at the counter seat so you can enjoy watching the kitchen’s action.
Here are some of my favorite dishes that I would highly recommend you to order:
*Foie Gras with Cinco Cebollas $19
*Fideos with Chorizo, Sea Beans and Clams $18
*Stuffed Lamb Belly with Artichoke Purée, Blood Oranges and Radicchio $16
They are open for lunch as well as dinner and serve the same menu. Please make sure to call for a reservation ahead of time because you won’t have much luck if you think you can just walk in for dinner. The place is always SuPa SuPa busy.
