Georgetown Cupcake

I feel like the cupcake boom has kind of died down in these last few years. No? I’m all about donuts from “Dough” at this moment. Not because I like the taste, but more that I enjoy taking photos of donuts. Their donuts are super chubby and adorable ♥ Although, I still sometimes pick up cupcakes for a dinner party, birthday, or baby shower. They’re just so colorful and have so many options to choose from for your taste. Plus, they’re size is perfect by being small enough for everyone to have one (^_^)

Here is list of yummy cupcake shops in downtown New York:

Little Cupcake Bakeshop – Prince Street in Nolita

Sugar Sweet Sunshine – Rivington Street in Lower East Side

BabyCakes NYC – Broom Street (Allergy and Gluten Free friendly!)

Butter Lane Cupcakes – 7th Street in East Village

Billy’s Bakery – 9th Avenue in Chelsea

Georgetown Cupcake – Mercer Street in SOHO

I just had OMG stylish dining at Caffe Storico (^0^)”””Caffè Storico in the New York Historical Society located on Upper West Side. Yup, Cutie Patroller crossed the border past 34 St. for this OMG new restaurant!!! I decide every few months I’m reporting crossed border some supper special spot if I find any!!! My last uptown report was the iconic Plaza Hotel, The Plaza Food Hall by Todd English. Caffe Storico opened in December by Stephen Starr, the mega-restaurateur who owns Morimoto and Buddakan here and a sizable empire of restaurants in Philadelphia. If you are expecting another uptown version of Buddakan this isn’t case. This place brings casual elegance to museum & neighborhood with chef Jim Burke’s authentic Italian cuisine. This place was as part of the $65 million, three-year-long renovation of the NYHS. I have to say they did great job with this place. 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…..Oh!! M Gggggggggggg sooo lovely!!!!!!! My stylish dinner reservation was 7:45 on Friday night with partner in crime Kim.  As soon as I walked in I was soooo satisfied of my choice for this special uptown patrolling report. Place was busy and the vibe so classy.  I started my dinner with glass of wine to compliment my rabbit porchetta and burrata with artichoke appetizers. Both dishes were very good and then I moved to the Ricotta Cavatelli, with lobster and black-trumpet mushrooms. I was going to order chef’s signature pappardelle with duck ragù, shaved chocolate and orange but I had enough meat in my order so I changed my mind. You must order one of pasta dish because this place is known for their handmade pasta.  They use four ounces of lobster and it was so meaty and flavorful.  Pasta’s shape is like a worm looking… (Don’t  get scared!! Soo good). I ended my dinner with giant size veal Osso Buco with Polenta. Of course me and my date Kim finished it up. Yup I told you I’m 90 pound skinny pig in the city but can EAT!!!  We had to skip dessert….. because we had 10:30 reservation for drink & snack time at another place otherwise I would have ordered two and cappuccino. I must say Caffe Storico is now one of reason to come visit UWS for sure. I recommend for any occasion like a cute date, birthday with 4-5 friends or just two. I can’t wait to come back here for girl power lunch or weekend brunch soon, I can imagine how lovely this place is in daylight with this decor and gorgeous big window.

www.freemansrestaurant.com – End of Freeman Alley ( At Rivington St )

This place is one of the first eateries to start the Gastropub trend that started in New York. Freemans has now become a Downtown LES classic. Which other restaurant in New York City is located at the end of a non-descript dark alley ? ( I think Commerce at Greenwich village is on a unique street but they’re not on an alley ). An absolutely must- order dish is the Artichoke Dip (believe me, it is worth making a trip just to taste this! ) Some of their dishes change by season, but the Beer Braised Pork Shank that I had there last time was soooo yummy -if you see it on the menu Cutie Patroller highly recommends you order it! The atmosphere inside is hip & cool and they are always busy. The space is dim and decorated with dark woods and stuffed taxidermy (eek!) but it has a very vintage feel to it, almost like an English country club in the middle of NYC. Currently, they now have an open upstairs area (^_^).

Beauty & Essex

www.beautyandessex.com146 Essex St , NYC

This is one of the largest restaurants that has opened in the LES with 10,000 square feet on two floors. I believe it’s Chef Chris Santos‘s second restaurant in NYC (he owns Stanton Social a few block away).  The ambiance is more of the style in the Meat Packing area where the space is very flashy and luxurious (think circa Glam 70s and sexy!). This is the spot to go with a bunch of friends, not if you want to have an intimate dinner or with parents who are in town. The main dining room is downstairs and upstairs is lounge style (you can order the full menu upstairs too.) Their tapas menu is big & food is very good. Often at this type of giant sized trendy spot the food is just ok …but everything here is very good. The bone marrow with shallot marmalade is one of the best I EVER had, even better than Prune’s …and I love Prune. Trendy Japanese Shishito Peppers are a must to order and share. The tapas size & price is fair except for their meatballs (after I found out it was $18, I will never order it again, especially when a few blocks away you can have amazing meatballs for $7 at The Meatball Shop).
