Hi Hounds,

I hope all of you are having a great end of year. Montreal hound here in NYC on a surprise visit.

Any foodie parties going on? We'd love to join in!!!

    honestly, i dont think you're going to get reservations anywhere.
    is there a certain area in the city you would prefer?

      Try Trattoria Cinque in Tribeca, the chef was in the 2010 MIchelin Guide for the parent restaurant and there are some really great options on the menu. I'm excited about the Veal Cheek Stuffed Ravioli morel mushroom sauce as an option. There is also a reserve wine list that has some great values so you can enjoy soma amazing Italian wines with out breaking the bank.
