Restaurant Round Up - October Eats

Highlights below from a delicious month!

So happy to finally check out an authentic "red-sauce" joint on Arthur Ave in the Bronx.  Tra Di Noi was really delicious - especially the calamari and lamb gnocchi!  Read about the wine we drank here!


Another trip upstate for a hiking adventure led to a hot dog lunch at Forrest's Sidestreet Cafe.


I caught a cone from Dominique Ansel Kitchen on the last weekend for their seasonal soft-serve window, the cold brew flavor was delicious!



Another NYC dining institution can be crossed off my list - the Peking Duck House is a great group dinner option with reasonable price-fixed menus and BYOB!


I was asked to join the dining committee of Parlor and finally tried their weekly seasonal chef's tasting menu at their new location.  Presentation and ambiance get an A+, food could use some work.

 
It's been so nice being back in the city on weekends, took advantage of ourdoor dining weather for brunch at Cafe Gitane.  This is the first place I recall ever hearing about avocado toast, they were certainly on the forefront of that trend!  Happy to report it's just as good as ever.
