    Amber in West Village with @MaxamusEnt

    When my wonderfully crazy friend Taj the Blacklion came to NYC for a visit last week, I was so excited to have dinner together. Knowing that he was an EX-New Yorker, and me being a relatively new one, I had to take him to the new hot spot du jour – You know they change quicker than a NY Minute! Nothing better than good friends and good food right?

    Amber is a resto-lounge in West Village with incredible decor and even better food. I had the Duck Hirata Buns, Rock Tempura Shrimp and Unagi Rolls. Nom nom

    (NY) Beauty + Essex

    The perfect spot for armcandy and rockstars. I went to this secret 20’s speakeasy-esque resto this weekend. Beauty & Essex is the love child of Chris Santos of The Stanton Social, the design firm AvroKo, Peter Kane of Happy Endings, and one of the co-founders of Tao and  Lavo clubs.  

    For this special occassion, I debuted my lippie ‘Ain’t No Wifey’… What do you think?

    It’s a ginormous 10,000 square foot restaurant, bar, & lounge that uses a pawn shop as a front. The ambiance is everything one would expect from such a ingenious combination: trendy, sophisticated, sleek and A-list worthy.  The bathrooms were complete with a complimentary champagne bar (for bad dates!) and antique perfume bottles as decor.  What a swanky place. 

    Everything on the menu is tapas size and made to share. Delicious.  Beauty & Essex just opened and is definitely going to be a Lower East Side hot spot! 
    Opening week last week with Kim K!

    (NY) Fishtail

    Fishtail NYC

    I love visitors and when Margaret told me she wanted to go to Fishtail for dinner I was more that ecstatic! We had the Sunday $35 prix fixe Lobsterfest. YUM. We also go the Lobster Mac and Cheese.. it was divine.

    Pretzel crusted Crabcakes

    To start… I had the Lobster Dumplings and Crabcakes for Appetizer

    Then I had the Hong Kong Lobster… So delish

    For dessert, the fuzzy and amazing Fig Cream. The fuzzy was made out of pure sugar.

    Such an incredible experience! When you come to NYC, I will take you to Fishtail 🙂  The one and only David Burke….

    Blurring the lines between chef, artist, entrepreneur and inventor, Burke stands as one of the leading pioneers in American cooking today. His fascination with ingredients and the art of the meal has fueled a career marked by creativity, critical acclaim and the introduction of revolutionary products and cooking techniques. In addition to Fishtail by David Burke, Burke’s other properties include davidburke & donatella (New York, NY), David Burke at Bloomingdale’s (New York, NY), David Burke Las Vegas, Burke in the Box at McCarran Airport (Las Vegas, NV), David Burke’s Primehouse (Chicago, IL), David Burke Fromagerie (Rumson, NJ), David Burke Prime and Burke in the Box (Mashantucket, CT).
