Chinese food has been one of the most popular here in the US. It is cheap, tasty, quick, and readily available at any hour of the day. For the most part it has been a quintessential food to many Americans.. There are a number of widely known dishes such as fried rice, sweet and sour chicken, lemon chicken, egg roll and of course, none is more famous than General Tso Chicken, (which was also voted as Grubhub fourth most ordered dish), that can found at every Chinese restaurant in New York City, and all across America. Nestled in Midtown Manhattan, Café China is not your proto-typical Chinese restaurant that serves bastardized version of Chinese food made to please American palates. Instead, they specialize in Sichuan cuisine which is distinctively spicy and pungent.

Unlike other Chinese restaurants, Café China’s interior is appealing. It has an L shape marble bar in the front that greets guests as they come in. Chandeliers and lamps brighten up the space. Its walls are adorned with large mirrors, and 1920 Old Shanghai photographs of Chinese women. Uncovered tables are paired with chairs that are seen in NYC public school. There are also leather benches with velvet back rest.

Café China has garnered a two star review from New York Times, a Michelin star for four consecutive years, and continuously ranked as among the top Chinese restaurant in New York City. Its menu is not overly extensive compared to others, and for the most part the dishes are offered for both lunch and dinner. The prices are fairly reasonable with entrée averaging about $25 for dinner and even cheaper during the afternoon.

Small plates like the Jellyfish in Scallion Pesto- Julienne jellyfish seasoned with scallion pesto were an interesting use of western ingredient in Asian food. In this case it was done properly, the subtlety of the gelatinous jelly fish was wonderfully flavored with pesto sauce. Both the Crystal Shrimp Dumplings and the Vegetable Pot Stickers were good, but nothing really to rave about. But the simple Sweet Potato Pancake on the other hand, had a nice fried crust and sweetness.

For entrées, the classic Kung Pao Chicken- stir fried with peanuts, peppercorn & chili peppers was a better version that I had before and has an abundance of tingling sensation. The Three Pepper Chicken- stir fried with chili peppers & peppercorn were tender pieces of chicken cooked with three types of pepper that yielded a numbing spiciness.

Fragrant Fish Filet filets of sole w/snow pea shoots & green chili pepper, were steamed chunks of sole that were lightly dressed with soy sauce which provided the right amount of saltiness. Snow pea shoots gave it an herbal aroma that went very well with green chili pepper’s spiciness. The Braised Fish Filet with Tofu filets of sole w/ chili sauce, peanuts and cilantro was a bowl of fiery pleasure. Fillet of braised sole and tofu are drowned in thick spicy sauce. Both of these dishes were pleasant.

Shredded Beef with Green Chili had a nice sum of spiciness that went along with tasty shredded beef. The Beef Sautéed with Tea Tree Mushroom was slightly milder and has very good flavors. It also has a strong earthiness provided by the tea tree mushroom. The vegetarian entrée of Egg Plant in Garlic Sauce were egg plants swimming in sweet syrupy garlic sauce was surprisingly appetizing.

My meals at Café China were quite enjoyable. The food was consistent, straight-forward, and had a certain refinement. It also had tremendous amount of spicy element that manages to blend properly with other ingredients on the plate without over powering them.

Subject to personal opinion, Cafe China might not compare to other Sichuan restaurant in New York City, but there is no denying that this is a solid restaurant. Cafe China constantly delivers spicy and flavorsome Sichuan food that New Yorkers have come to enjoy.

Aquavit

Dining Room

Aquavit
65 E 55th St
New York, NY 10022

The average life span of a restaurant upon its first day of opening in New York City is three months. During that time it will either make it or break it. Aquavit, on the other hand, has withstood the test of time in this city’s competitive dining environment. For 25 years it was the premier Scandinavian restaurant as well as a fine dining establishment in New York City. It has received numerous accolades and rave reviews throughout the years.

This restaurant was once home to celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson who made a name for himself while manning its kitchen. During that time Chef Samuelsson received a three star review from The New York Times making him one of the youngest chefs to accomplish such a feat. Now, Aquavit’s kitchen is under the helm of Marcus Jernmark (who was the executive sous chef up until Chef Samuelsson’s departure in 2010). His modern interpretation of Nordic Cuisine was recently awarded a star by the Michelin guide’s 2013 edition.

Aquavit has a lovely modern interior and an unconventional layout that is complimented with a wonderful Scandinavian fixture that was popularized by IKEA. This restaurant in Midtown East has a long lounge area with high ceilings visible as soon as you walk in. It has clusters of Danish designed egg chairs and aquavit jars displayed on the wall. Towards the back is the bar followed by a series of rooms that are used for private events. The medium size dining room in the front is decorated with beautiful chandeliers, dark wood flooring, and numerous round space tables in the middle along with arm less oxford and elbow chairs. Uncovered dark Mahogany table tops with comfortable leather booth seats are on opposite walls while the windows with street views serve as a back drop to Fortune 500 diners that mainly occupy the room at dinner time during weeknights.

 

 

 

 

In order to truly experience Chef Jernmark’s seasonal cooking; the $85 four course (an extra $55 for wine pairing) dinner is my personal recommendation. It allows the diner s to design each course from the menu. During lunch, a three course set menu is available for $35 dollars as well as an a la carte option for both times.

The kitchen has a few surprises to start up the dinner, like the chilled truffle soup served in a canning jar that when it’s opened it resembles a waterfall of smoke that is a prelude to the amazing things to come.

The Herring is a staple food to every Scandinavian country, so I had to have the Cold Smoked Holland Herring. I liked the smoky taste and zesty sourness from the pickled onions. The Herring Trio was pretty good as well as the Gravlax for starters. Then there was the Nantucket Sea Scallops that was presented beautifully on top of the shell inside a wooden box. The sea urchin with the scallops made this deep oceanic dish delectable.

 

 

The Day Boat Cod with cauliflower and caviar has a deceitful look of an uninspiring plate of whiteness, but once you have had a taste of the cod, with the cauliflower against the saltiness of the caviar it has a remarkable flavor combination. The Wild Mushrooms with poached eggs was another dish that was surprising. I loved the mushroom and the poached eggs were just an added goodie that made this plate more than delicious.

Meat dishes like Wagyu Beef “Rydberg” where the pieces of meat were juicy and the truffle jus created an earthy fondness to it. Then, there is the Swedish Meatballs with mashed potatoes and lingonberries. The meatballs were very moist and the lingonberries provided a touch of tartness as well as sweetness. While poultry options like The Crescent Farm Duck Breast with Foie Gras was also very good. The fatty foie gras with the tender duck meat went very well together and a similar style dish, Penobscot Chicken Breast, was pan fried perfectly.

 

 

 

 

There isn’t much selection when it comes to dessert s, but the Peach and Pistachio and the The Apple and Rye with caramel is an excellent way to end a meal with something sweet.

Aquavit has an extensive wine list that is derived from different parts of the globe. I once requested the Sommelier to pair my dinner with wine and it was done amazingly to my liking. But the flavor of the infused aquavits is a must to try here. There is a plum flavored aquavit for those that prefer a little sweetness, a Horseradish for a more potent taste, or an Asian Pear for those that enjoy a more fruity drink.

Way before the explosion of Nordic cuisine in New York City and the US, Aquavit had established its brand here. It is a pioneer and an institution in this city. I once dined at this restaurant a few years back and I vaguely remember anything, but I have enjoyed my recent visits .The staff are attentive and professional. Chef Jernmark’s brilliant technique and precision are seen on every plate that comes out of the kitchen. Having no recollection of a dish that I disliked, I realized how Aquavit has withstood the test of time.

Culinary Excellence inspired by The Cayman Islands, October 23, 2012

New York, Paris, Tuscany, and if Chef Niven Patel and the Board of Tourism of the Cayman Islands has anything to do with it, the Cayman Islands will soon be on your list of destinations for a one of a kind culinary experience! Last night I was invited to an event designed to do just that by my friend Kirsy Munoz, marketing manager of Snooth Media. Chef Patel of Brassiere restaurant of the Cayman Islands borrowed The Kitchen located on E. 44th St. to hold this spectacular event. Because of the open layout of the venue, my fellow food enthusiasts and I were able to witness, firsthand, Chef Patel’s masterful preparation of each course! Each course was inspired by Cayman Island cuisine while using ingredients readily found here in New York City and was paired with wine that was selected by Gregory Dal Piaz, editor and chief of Snooth Media.

Upon my arrival, I was greeted with a cocktail called the Seven Mile Mule which was made with the Cayman Island’s very own Seven Fhathoms premium rum, ginger ale and an orange slice garnished. The sweetness of the ginger ale and the rum was balanced by the zest of the orange. However, even without being incorporated into a cocktail, Seven Fhathoms is a very smooth rum. For now, the rum is only available in Chicago, but I am told it will be making its way to New York City in the very near future.

I started the dinner with a canapés of fluke credo, crispy chickpeas, seasoning pepper escabeche.I loved the freshness and the texture of the raw fish.There was just enough kick from the spices, but it was not overwhelming.The dish was paired with the Seven Mule drink I had previously,this was a good pairing.

The first course was fresh clams BLT, smoked bacon, heirloom tomatoes, charred ciabatta paired with Loimer- Lois GurnerVeltliner 2011. Because I do not eat pork,I had to remove the smoked bacon from the dish. As anyone who knows me knows, I am a sucker for any dish containing tomatoes.The sweetness of the tomato sauce, combined with the freshness of the clams was enhanced by the wine.

The second course was farmer’s salad, organic beets, goat cheese, red spinach, Cayman citrus vinaigrette paired with Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2010.Normally I am not a fan of goat cheese (mainly because of the smell),but the citrus vinaigrette balanced this out for me and I was able to enjoy the dish.

The third course was day boat striped bass, gnocchi, tat soi, Romano beans, Caribbean stone crab butter paired with Cloudy Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010.This was my favorite dish of the meal. The striped bass was pan seared perfectly, it was very moist. The saltiness and butteriness of the crab butter was essential to tying this entire course together.The gnocchi added a starchy texture that brought the course full circle.I felt that the pairing of fish with Pinot Noir was a very gutsy move.I liked the oaky smell and flavor of the wine, but personally it did not work with the striped bass. But that’s just my personal taste.

The fourth course was thirty- eight day dry aged strip steak, squash, wild greens, mushrooms, scotch bonnet pepper jelly paired with Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno 2008.The beef was extremely flavorful, moist, and tender.The pureed squash and creamed mushrooms only added to this delicious cut of beef.

Dessert was Jonagold apple, almond strudel, coconut ice cream paired with Kracher Cuvee Beerenauslese 2009. I particularly enjoyed the pairing of the wine with this dessert. The wine was not too sweet, which was perfect because the dessert more than compensated for this.

It was a wonderful evening; Chef Patel’s dishes packed a lot of flavors. With the exception of the Pinot Noir paired with bass, the wines were excellently and properly paired with each of the dishes. This meal might just confirm what the event organizer has been saying all night long that “The Cayman Island is the culinary capital of the Caribbean”.

Tulsi

Indian cuisine has always done very well in NYC and has been generally well received by dinners and food critics alike. But there are very few well known Indian fine dining establishments in the city other than Devi and Tamarind. Early this year Tulsi opened in Midtown East and became an instant success. The restaurant was awarded a coveted one Michelin Star in the guide’s 2012 edition. It’s Executive Chef/Owner, Hermant Mathur is no stranger to such accolades having earned a star in 2009 for Devi, his other Indian restaurant. The star he earned for Devi was the first of its kind for an Indian Restaurant. So when it came time to partake in some Indian food I chose Tulsi and it meet my expectations and beyond.

Dining at Tulsi is like dining at the Maharaja‘s Palace but instead of princes and princesses, you dine alongside Midtown’s corporate crowd. The restaurant’s Sanskrit inscribed glass façade allows for a sneak peek into the glorious palace. Once inside, you are greeted with the restaurant’s soothing and relaxing atmosphere. The dining experience starts at the bar/lounge where you can have pre-dinner drinks at the lighted dark wood bar which displays a mirrored wall design of the world map; or while waiting for your a table you can sit and relax on cream colored sofas at the lounge area. The overall décor is a showcase of Indian aesthetics. As you make your way to the dining room which seats about 50 guest, the main colors are cream and brown with a touch of basil green. The tiled floors are made out ceramic and steel and the chandeliers provide soft lighting while music from the region plays lightly in the background. The tables are covered with white table cloths paired with beige upholstered chairs creating an elegant look. Along the sides of the dining room are four tent-like spaces with hanging cream curtains. Ornately designed steel jaalis and turquoise colored seats accompany the tent-like spaces which are great spots for a nice intimate dinner.

Tulsi serves regional Indian food. They offer a dinner tasting menu option – 7 courses for $65 (the vegetarian version is the same price) with an additional $35 for wine pairings. Their lunch offering includes a $20 two course menu, and the a la carte is available for both times. Indian cuisine is an acquired taste, it’s full of spices and herbs that give each dish a unique flavor. I will mention a few of the appetizers that I had. The Mixed Sprouts – green moong, bean sprouts, black-eyed peas, potatoes, tomatoes, red onion and mint yogurt dressing, has an initial not so pleasing taste, however the flavors gradually rise and your taste bud come around. I then tried the Chaats – avocado and jhal muri. This was one dish that surprised me; I thought I would not like it. The avocado was combined with unfamiliar ingredients, but the taste was surprisingly delicious. The Black Pepper and Coconut Shrimp papri was spicy and had a tomato and cream taste that I enjoyed. Next are the entrées; I had the Roasted Pesto Portobello Mushroom – paneer-stuffed, tomato-fenugreek sauce and semolina cakes. I loved it, it become my favorite dish. The taste of the fusion of tomato sauce and the mushroom was incredible. Next up was the Stuffed Achari Chicken – paneer and mushrooms, tomato and rice. The chicken was neither juicy nor dry but just about right. The stuffing complimented the chicken with the rice that came with the dish. The most interesting dish was the Lamb Nargisi Kofta – cashew nut sauce with cumin-green pea and quinoa. The cream sauce with the hardboiled egg on top of the lamb tasted very good. And for dessert I had the Raspberry Kulfi – valrhona chocolate cake, berry compote and chocolate sauce; and the Jalebi – Indian funnel cakes, saffron syrup and spiced almond milk. The Rasberry Kulfi was ok but the Jalebi was amazing.

 

 

 

 

Tulsi has a descent wine list, but I was more impressed with their exotic cocktails. I had the Tulsi Martini, an in house concoction with mystery ingredients. The drink was sweet but not overbearing and a touch Absolute made the drink perfect.

Would I recommend Tulsi? YES!!!! The service was a bit spotty at times but nevertheless it wasn’t that bad. I’ve dined here both before and after it earned a Michelin star; the food was consistent if not even better on my second visit. If you’re crave Indian food and don’t mind shelling out a couple of dollars this is it the place to dine.

Armani Ristorante 5th Avenue

While walking along 5th Avenue in the 50’s, home to the high- end luxury brand stores, I was surprised to discover Armani Ristorante on the third floor of the Armani Store. The restaurant’s almost hidden location can easily be overlooked by most people in that high traffic tourist spot. I myself did not initially notice the restaurant’s sign on 55th Street nor did I notice the sign inside the store. I decided to visit one cold winter evening and have been back numerous times.

I had no expectations on my first visit, yet I reminded myself that this restaurant is owned by the man Giorgio Armani himself, a global fashion icon. The restaurant is accessible via the entrance on 55th Street where a doorman awaits guests to usher them to the elevator or through the store and up the white winding space aged staircase. While I ascended in the elevator to restaurant, the elevator’s trendy music set the mood. I was blown away by the restaurants decor at first glance. Looking around, I realized I was part of an incredibly stylish scene: black marble floors and black ceiling; yielding lights that drop smoothly in every table; funky curved shapes and futuristic booth seats, bare sleek tables and comfortable black cushion seats. The simplistic use of black and white is an Armani signature. For an added touch of class the waiters appear and disappear to the kitchen through walls with sliding doors. The restaurant has a bar that lights up brightly, there guests can enjoy the signature drink, an Armani Martini. To top off the stylish surroundings, the dining area has a wonderful view overlooking the luxurious 5th Avenue.

 

 

 

 

The food is as impressive as the decor. The presentation and the taste of their Italian cuisine will have you coming back again and again!!! Whenever I dine here, I always opt for the 4 course tasting menu (I highly recommend it). It consists of an appetizer, pasta, meat and dessert paired with wine for dinner. I also recommend the $29 pre-fixe for lunch. Some of the dishes that I enjoyed were the Insalata Di Funghi Trifolati – mushrooms salad with pecorino cheese and seasonal truffle; and the Insalata Di Mare Caldo – warm seafood salad with baby arugula, pachino tomatoes, lemon and Ligurian olive oil. These salads were both pretty tasty but the seafood salad reigns as one of my favorite dishes, it’s very fresh and the texture is just perfect. Another appetizer that I enjoyed is the Agnolotti Di Ricotta e Spinaci – Ricotta and spinach agnolotti with butter and sage. The memorable entrées are the Galletto Ruspante – a fried chicken dish; the Branzino Selvaggio Dorato Su Carciofini in Umido – wild sea bass fillet and softly baked baby artichokes; and the Scottadito D’Agnello e Olio Alle Erbe – grilled Colorado lamb chops and herbed olive oil. Of the desserts, the amazing Crostata Al Frutti Di Bosco – fruit tart served with soft lemon cream and the Sorbet was another favorite.

 

 

 

 

In line with the beautiful décor and delicious food, the service is high quality and consistent. The managers treat guests like royalty and the servers, dressed in custom made Armani black uniforms, are very friendly and very attentive. In general the staff made me feel welcomed as an honored guest. Though the atmosphere of the crowd can be a bit pretentious at times, there are also tourists that stop by for a nice afternoon tea and corporate folks on power lunches or corporate dinners. And of course couples can be seen having a nice romantic dinner.

Armani Ristorante is not only a restaurant made to impress with its sleek fashionable décor and well dressed staff, but the high quality of the food, impeccable service and great ambiance make this a pretty solid restaurant for dinner, lunch or just drinks.

Getting to the Mad46 Lounge at the top of the Roosevelt Hotel is a mini adventure. After entering the elegance of the Roosevelt you are then directed by a security guard to walk through a dark corridor which leads to an elevator that takes you to your 19th floor destination. Once you exit the elevator you’re back in elegance – the Mad46 Lounge.

It was a great summer’s day and a perfect place for my friends and me to go and unwind after work. The lounge runs around the entire length of the Roosevelt’s roof. The majority of the space is outdoors and at the center is an indoor lounge that looks like a typical NYC lounge. The overall look is old meets new, 20th century architecture against modern cabanas and modern decor. You will enjoy the rooftop views as you are surrounded by other fabulous New York City buildings.

The drinks are pretty good, our server recommended the Lenart (Xante pear liqueur, sprite and fresh lime juice.) The Lenart was flavorful and sweet, just how I like my drinks. Prices are pretty much average $13-$15 for cocktails.

Neither chic nor trendy, Mad46 is great for a group of friends who want to hang out after work or just catch up. You may also meet a new a friend or two along the way. The crowd is pretty much the midtown afterwork crowd. It empties out after 7:30 PM. The service is amazing from the security downstairs to the server at the lounge.

Mad46 is a cool spot for kicking back and relaxing on the cabanas with some friends or colleagues after a long day of work. I plan to return.

I heard about the Bookmarks Rooftop Lounge from a friend but I had no idea what to expect. When I finally arrived, I was pleasantly surprised and very impressed with this cozy and classy spot. Bookmarks Rooftop Lounge, located at the top of the Library Hotel, is just the right size – neither too big and impersonal nor too small and intrusive. The ambience and décor are both simple and snug almost like a private library in one’s home, but with hints of subdued luxury.

When I arrived at the Bookmarks with my guests, we were seated at the section of the lounge that was enclosed with plexiglass, the Enclosed Terrance.  Our area was cozy with exposed brick and dark brown wooden panels. We sat on cool wooden benches lined with soft pillows. Huge potted plants with rich green foliage were both décor and subtle dividers between guests allowing for a private yet connected feel. The opposite end of the rooftop, The Poetry Garden, was completely outdoors, garden-like and a little more intimate than the Enclosed Terrance. There was also an indoor section of the lounge, The Writer’s Den, that was dimly lit with dark comfy leather furniture.

Now most importantly, the drinks – yes they were on point. The names of cocktails were literarily inspired .I had the “Underneath the Mango Tree” which was recommended by our server. It was sweet and very tasty, I couldn’t taste the liquor at all, but it was definitely there.

As the night fell, the dim lights and the candle lit table made this cozy intimate spot romantic. There was also music softly playing in the background which added to the romance. This place is a definite date spot especially when it gets dark.

Overall The Bookmarks Rooftop Lounge is highly recommended; a great place to relax on your own, have drinks with a small group or take someone out for a romantic evening.
