Restaurant: Rose’s Luxury

I had not previously attempted to dine at Rose’s Luxury because I was not up to standing in line to make a reservation and I never got around to hiring a line stander. Debbie and I had eaten at Pineapple and Pearls (WW #159-12/2017) which is located next door which we thoroughly enjoyed. Both restaurants are owned by Aaron Silverman.

Restaurant: Emilitsa

(At the end of the following review there is an addendum relative to the connection between Emilitsa and my hometown of Duluth, Minnesota)

We went to Emilitsa with Melanie and Eliot.

Emilitsa, a traditional Greek restaurant, was opened in 2008 by two brothers named Demos and John Regas. Demos was the chef and John ran the front of the House. In 2015, Demos’ son Niko took over for his father as Executive Chef. Continue reading “Restaurant: Emilitsa”

Restaurant: Town Square Tavern

A reminder: When I write about a restaurant it means that I think it is worth trying and that I would go there again. If I don’t like it, I don’t write about it.

As you enter there are a variety of seating options including an “L” shaped bar that seats 4 on one side and 6 on the other. There is a communal table that seats 10. At the far end a banquette that fronts a series of two and four tops which can be combined in a variety of ways. It is here that we were seated. The balance of the restaurant is 2 and 4 tops.

Restaurant: Momofuku CCDC

Debbie and I went to Momofuku with Florence and Peter on a Saturday night.

The main door of the restaurant is actually on 11th Avenue at the corner of 11th and “I” street. It shares an entrance with an ice cream specialty shop called Milk Bar. There is a closed street along the “I” Street side and there is an area for outdoor dining which was not being used the night we were there. Continue reading “Restaurant: Momofuku CCDC”

Restaurant: Lupo Verde Osteria

Hilary, Debbie and I went to the new Lupo Verde Osteria on May 14th just a month after it opened. This is the second restaurant opened by the folks who opened the original Lupo Verde on 14th Street.

The Lupo restaurants have been described by others as “soulful Italian cooking.” Continue reading “Restaurant: Lupo Verde Osteria”
