Fine Dining

My life is not my own.  I worked till 11pm last night and who knows how late I'll be staying tonight.  I have to make the most of every moment I have for myself these days.  This month I did make time for two of the finest establishments the city has to offer.  

Mario Batali's Babbo

I have been wanting to try Babbo for many years, but never got around it. I got my go to pasta, gnocchi, and it was delicious. Regretfully, I had to skip out on dinner and return to work. I can't wait to go back soon though so I can try out another dish.

Tamarind in Tribeca
Someone special surprised me with dinner at Tamarind for my birthday. I couldn't have been more delighted. I got a non-alcoholic lychee drink and special cauliflower appetizer and a dish I had never tried before: shahi paneer. This place is now my favorite Indian restaurant and shahi paneer may just be my new favorite Indian dish.  Tamarind has definitely earned their Michelin star.  I was also serenaded with the sweetest softest version of Happy Birthday to You I've ever heard sung.
