A touch of Italy

It was my dear friend’s last day with me at our job and we decided to do a celebratory lunch for her new opportunity and success within her future endeavors.  Midtown can cause quite a headache sometimes when looking for different  lunch options.  On this particular day, we decided to take a stroll down 6th ave and see in fact what we could find.  Our lucky winner would be this cute little restaurant, L’Amico, located inside the Eventi Hotel.  The menu is a mix of both American and Italian and offers a number of great dishes.

The ambiance was so cute!  I could not stop talking about.  The table setting, rustic-chic décor and overall atmosphere had us sold already.  We could care less about the food at this point but luckily it matched how we felt about this place thus far.  I went with the scallops over a rosemary-apple puree along with sunchokes and capers.  The blend of flavors that this dish brought was absolutely amazing! OMG!!!  The scallops were seared perfectly and the puree added such a nice touch of flavor!  Definitely a great choice for lunch.  My friend went with the salmon avocado dish which included a charred kale dressed with lemon oil.  Such a fresh dish for fall and also an excellent choice.  Equally as delicious as mine although I think my entrée would have to be my favorite out of the two.

L’Amico did not disappoint to say the least.  In fact, we now wish we’d discovered this place sometime ago.  I believe the menu is seasonal so hopefully you are able to catch this place in time to try the tasty dishes we had.  If not, I’m sure the winter menu would be just as delicious.  Definitely give them a try when in Midtown New York.
