You enter this restaurant/bar through a pawn shop! All you do is walk to the back of the pawn shop, to be let in by the "bouncer." Then descend into a glamorous 3 story restaurant!
This was the entrance to the restaurant/bar, which I thought was stunning.
There is free champagne served in the ladies bathroom/lounge, which itself is a must-see!
Go to Beauty and Essex, if only to see this!
Chris and I just went for dessert and drinks. This was our favorite dessert, the
Our other dessert was the
Even the menus were glam! By the way, try their cocktails, too. They are amazing!
Another night we had drinks at the Plaza Hotel, which is always a fun & classy thing to do!
(Brunch there is amazing, too!) I couldn't resist taking a picture of the beautiful table of flowers in the lobby. The Plaza always has the most gorgeous flower displays!
My drink at The Plaza was wonderful! Very light & refreshing.
Can't remember what it was called, but it had gin, ginger beer, and lemon or lime juice. It was topped with fresh mint & candied ginger, too. SO good!
The last place I want to share with you is Antique Garage, in Soho.
I was shopping in Soho one afternoon and happened upon this adorable little place.
I judged a book by it's cover, as they say, and make the decision this place looked too cute not to go in!
Turns out I was right. This tiny Greek & Middle Eastern restaurant has a polite and informative staff, great food, and unbeatable prices! Go here if you are ever in Soho and find yourself a little hungry from all that shopping :)
Inside the restaurant. Exposed brick walls and ornate crystal chandeliers give this place a neat vibe.
I was eating dinner in a couple of hours, so I kept it light by ordering from their large appetizer and salad menu. I ordered the Tzatziki, which was a yogurt spread with cucumbers and fresh dill. It was served with their warm, homemade bread... PERFECT! I ordered a nice glass of white wine, at the suggestion of my server. It ended up being the perfect mid-afternoon snack, adding to the perfection was the fact that all the windows were open due to the unseasonably warm day!
