Where I Need To Eat Next (NYC Edition)

EATALY NYC

This is really bad that I haven’t been yet to Eataly — a “claimed” foodie, I know I know I’ll make my way soon. Big large crowds intimidate/ annoy me though so I’m waiting until the buzz dies down JUST  a bit. I did hear from sources that you absolutely invest in sliced meats and cheeses — and veer clear of the ridiculously overpriced tomato sauces and pastas. I will have to make my own comments after visiting.

THE BRESLIN BAR & DINING ROOM

I stayed in the hotel for which Breslin lives in, however, I never made it to the restaurant that was just opening when I was checked into the hotel. Regardless, the menu is totally legitimate and up my alley. The appetizers seem to be the headliners on the menu — with items such as Salt & Vinegar Crisps and Caramel Popcorn? You can’t go wrong. I’m also a HUGE ass sucker for all Gastropubs, I think I’m somewhat hipster for a few hours, and then of course, reality sets in….

SOCCARAT PAELLA BAR

This really needs no explanation — I am ashamed having not been once, even alone if no one shares the same love and desire to eat Paella all the time as I myself do. New York Mag ranked this the best place in the city to get Paella, um… what am I waiting for? That’s a great question that I cannot answer. Bar seating facing all other diners — loud, dark, fast moving and great paella — is it dinnertime yet?

 MARC FORGIONE

He was just written about last Dining In Dining out NYTimes so I’m not too far behind everyone else. The menu looks unreal, especially the “go to dish” — Bell & Evans Chicken Under a Brick with Yukon Smashed Potatoes, Pan drippings and Rapini. I die inside a bit. One of the appetizers looks literally scandalously good — Mac and Cheese, Lamb Neck, Orzo, Marscapone and Parmigiano.
