You can always find a good barbecue place in NYC. One that happens to be a pretty good choice in my opinion is Southern Hospitality. Part owner, Justin Timberlake, brings his Southern roots to the heart of New York City with Memphis-style ribs, pulled pork, and the southern fried classics. I’ve visited for both brunch and diner and the food is always on point. This particular visit I tried the brisket sandwich topped with fried onions and a sweet BBQ sauce. All sandwiches are accompanied with a pickle and fries but the fries can be substituted of course. To balance it out, I normally try to add I side salad which was a great combination with this sandwich. When someone tags along, I also try whatever they have and this time it was the infamous chicken and waffles. The cornbread waffles were cooked to perfection and the chicken was very flavorful as well. Just the right amount of crisp with each bite. Seeing that I am from the south myself, I love venturing off and finding places like these. Their take on Southern classics here are very good to say the least. If you’re ever in the Times Square area and want to have some authentic Southern bbq with undeniable Southern hospitality, give them a try.
I had the pleasure of dining at Nobu in TriBeCa, NY. Perfect ambiance, great food and service. To start, the rock shrimp tempura with the creamy spicy sauce was an amazing appetizer. To follow up with this, I had to try their sushi. I mean this is Nobu we’re talking about. I decided to try the soft shell spider roll and that was a pretty good decision. For the entree, the filet of salmon with the teriyaki sauce was my choice for the evening. Overall, the dishes were quite tasty and the vibes of the restaurant made it that much better. Oh and I can’t forget to mention the pineapple martini. All in all, Nobu lived up to the hype. Give them a try and check out my dining choices below.
When anyone asks where’s a good place to go for dinner, Stanton Social is always one of my recommendations. This tapas style restaurant lounge never disappoints. The menu does often change so you may not be able to try exactly what I have had the pleasure of having but the executive chef creates great dishes throughout the year. Recently I was able to enjoy the seared scallops with lobster ravioli garnished with tomatoes and a light cream sauce. I also tried the beef and broccoli which consisted of braised beef atop a rice cake with a broccoli cream base and the special Social mac and cheese which craftily included Italian sausage. Since moving to New York, I have tried a number of restaurants and this one remains my favorite. Please do yourself a favor and get here soon!
