BEAUTY AND ESSEX
If you haven't had the spaghettini here, what have you been doing with your life? The Tuna tacos are good too, along with the wild mushroom toast for brunch.
Start with the Tuna tarts, they are the best. The mushroom salad is warming and flavorful. The Toro Scallion roll is impeccable. Finish off with the Seabass which melts in your mouth.
SUPPER, LIL FRANKIE'S, FRANK
You can't go wrong with everything here. But the Pasta Limone is life changing.
The Burrata, Branzino, and Focaccia pizza are the best things on the menu.
The ever so popular bagel is great with drinks by the bar, and the Syrian Cesar is great for a light dinner.
Order the “grandma walking through forest in Emilia” because of the name, and also because it's tasty.
BLUE RIBBON IZAKAYA
This chic sushi place is great for their sashimi, shishito peppers, and their selection of skewers.
Just get the fries, they've been on TV. Their brunch is always a win-win.
Doesn't get classier than this joint. People watch and munch on the Black Bass and cheesecake for dessert.
The drinks are deadly. Pair them with the famous cheese plates or enjoy any of the pastas.
The tacos, rice cakes, and the heirloom tomatoes are great to start with. For your vegan guest, may we suggest the cauliflower steak? The Kenai Roll is the yummiest roll there.
For when you want to shell out the big $$$. The Toro Tartar might cause you to shed a tear.
They also have some killer tarts, but our absolute favorite is the Greenwich roll.
ABCV and ABC KITCHEN
Practically love everything here-- but their kale salad has inspired a lot of dishes for me. The mushrooms at ABCV will hug your soul.
