JoJo, New York

JoJo, New York

JoJo, New York

JoJo( 1 star Michelin) is the first and the oldest restaurant of the famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten in NY. And, it is not typical for the sleek Upper Eastside. The boudoir style interior and the crystal chandeliers create particularly mysterious mood. I had dinner there last night and I have…

Lupa, New York

Lupa, New York

I knew Lupa (Italian-roman) restaurant quite long time ago (i discovered it just passing by), but only now I found out that it’s the restaurant of Mario Batali, “one of the most recognizable chefs in America”. Despite the celebrity chef, the restaurant is very homey and trattoria like. The menu…

Koi, New York- not worth a return

Koi, New York- not worth a return

Koi (40 W 40 str.) is another copycat of Nobu. I call it “copycat” as the only dish worth a try was the famous Matsuhisa’s “black cod”. Otherwise, the choice on the menu is very small and i didn’t see any original dishes. Even if they try to create the…

The dinner in Tetou (one-star Michelin) for me means that the summer is back! I already included this restaurant in my favourites of South Of France last year and I still love it the same as before… Tetou is as famous for its bouillabaisse (which IS the best in the…

Miramar (Bouillabaisse) , Marseille

Miramar (Bouillabaisse) , Marseille

Bouillabaisse is a Provencal fish stew made of Mediterranean fish, tomatoes, herbs and saffron. Obviously, Marseille is THE PLACE to eat this hearty Provencal speciality. If you want to have a more relaxed dinner rather than having a dinner “under stars” in the romantic La Petit Nice Passedat (2 stars…

Gari

Gari

Gari

After moving to Upper West Side, I discovered some great restaurants, Gari, for example (which is on Columbus Av. , between 78 and 77 street). Gari is the younger sister of another restaurant, Sushi of Gari, which is on the East Side, and, in my opinion, has one of the…

Casa Tua, Miami Beach

Casa Tua, Miami Beach

“Casa Tua” – is an Italian restaurant in Miami Beach. The ambiance and the crowd is chic, and, the most important, the food is excellent. The food is very simple, but fresh. (What Italian restaurant needs more? :)) The tuna tartar or baby spinach salad are the must! What is…
