DINNER AT DELMONICO'S NYC

Since NYC Restaurant week got extended once again we had a chance to try out the Financial District gem, Delmonico's. Delmonico's opened in 1837 as America's first fine dining restaurant, and it sure is still fine. The space is grand and gorgeous and for example our waiter had been working there for over 25 years. 
Once again there's no photos of the appetizers or main courses, this time I blame the cocktails me and K had before the dinner. We met up in Union Square after work and went to Republic for Happy Hour, but after the first round of drinks we found out Republic does NOT have Happy Hour. So we walked 2 blocks south and found Bar 13 that indeed did have a Happy Hour. $6 for specialty Absolut vodka cocktails (big glasses) or two for one other cocktails. This is also where I want to go for Spoken Word nights one day. 
Our desserts were yummy, but I was so stuffed at this point that I could not have more than two spoonfuls of my cheese cake.
I must say everything I had was wonderful. I had some kind of creamy veggie pasta for apps that was mouthwatering. I would go back there just for that.  Our restaurant critic group gives Delmonico's 5 stars out of 5.
In other news... Let me introduce you our friend Nick, who's our partner in culinary crimes, and surprisingly still single, tall, fit and handsome, passionate about NYC real estate, American Idol and has the same sarcastic sense of humor I do. Just a hint hint single ladies... You can find him wandering the streets of Financial District, Riverside Park or Long Island City and taking photos of the buildings. Yep, that's what he does.
