Where are the best apps in manhattan?
We are heading to NYC soon for a big premiere.
So we don't want to get bogged down by a big meal.
Any thought on any hood for trully amazing nosh and a glass of vino or martini before hopping a cab to the theatre?
Looking for a great atmosphere - any kind...with nice apps and good tables to chat with 4 people sharing food and good times.
Mahalo, thank you
Beyoglu on 81st and 3rd is a Turkish place with great mezes that won't empty your bank account.
Lately we've been loving Casellula on W. 52nd St.(@ 9th Ave.)
They have a great wine list as well as small plates, sandwiches, salads and a wonderful cheese selection that the fromager pairs with unique accompaniments.
My favorite's include the pig's ass sandwich, duck confit salad, and definitely the mac & cheese. Also, you can't miss the chocolate cake doused in farm fresh heavy cream.
The menu doesn't seem to be completely updated but you can still get a good idea.
Buddakan...although I hate to admit it...has fantastic appetizers. I particularly liked the lobster egg rolls, shrimp dumplings and scallion pancakes. Great drinks, too.
