Neighborhood: Midtown East

Occassion: I was here for dinner

Note: Everyone is complaining about not being able to make reservations! this restaurant belongs to Ralph Lauren. The Polo Bar opened last year next to their Polo shop in Midtown Manhattan, New York city. They do not allow walk-ins. I definitely recommend going early for a drink. (The bar can only be accessed if you have a dinner reservation). The food is just okay but you definitely come to here for the experience. I called it ”Old School New York Fabulous”

Spanish Tapas ”Sol”

Chef Owner: Andrew D’Ambrosi 

Sol is a new Spanish tapas restaurant in underneath cocktail bar Bourgeois Pig in Greenwich Village. Atmosphere is casual, dark and sexy. The restaurant itself only 16 stool plus a one small high table in the middle. I sat at the chef’s counter right in front of the kitchen which gives you full view of the small, open kitchen where chef owner D’Ambrosi and his sous chef were working away. I tried 5 different dishes and everything was really delicious and it was beyond my expectation. My favorite thing was Langoustine – Egg Yolk, Matchstick Potato, Crustacean Sauce.

Cuisine: Spanish Tapas

Neighborhood: Greenwich Village

Recommend Dishes: Langoustine – Egg Yolk, Matchstick Potato, Crustacean Sauce $17. Octopus – Farro, Chickpea, Broccolini, Onion $24.

Occassion: I was here for dinner.

Seat: I recommend to sit at the chef’s counter.

Sister restaurant: Bergen Hill in Carroll Garden, Brooklyn.
