Restaurant Roundup: Top NY Restaurant Picks For The Holiday Season

Lela Mediterranean brasserie is a new NYC restaurant located in a charming brownstone nestled on a chic upper west side 74th street block with an interior styled Istanbul decor. Executive Chef Met Kaba serves popular Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine with ingredients imported from the Mediterranean coast or Maramara region in Istanbul. The restaurant’s interior decor is Turkish inspired for a relaxed, authentic experience.

We especially liked the Merguez Pide very tasty with minced meat, onions, parsley and tomato on nicely baked flatbread, Enzine salad- fresh and plentiful Greek salad with ezine cheese and the slowly cooked & tender Lamb Shank with porcini and orzo risotto. Lela Mediterranean brasserie is open for brunch, dinner and takeout visit (347) 334 7939 108 W 74th Street New York, NY 10023 

Senso Unico Restaurant located on a quiet Sunnyside street in Queens where you feel far from the city but only a 15-minute train ride away from midtown. This Trattoria is family-owned and operated by Chef/Owner Vincenzo Garofalo who runs the kitchen and has an extensive Michelin starred restaurant background along with his wife Laura Garofalo who takes care of the hospitality making sure to visit each table to greet patrons and suggest wine & specialties.

Our faves were the tasty Gnocchi Di Castagne- ricotta chestnuts & dumplings, Prociutto- fresh and nicely sliced and the perfectly seasoned & tender Calamara.

PASTA EATER is a newly opened NYC Italian restaurant owned by restaurateur Giusto Priola and Chef Luigi Cetrulo; located in the fun and hip Union Square area. Historic Pasta traditions from Sicily and regions of Italy are made from scratch for the freshest homemade pasta in many choices. we also loved the grilled fish and shellfish perfect with olive oil dripped on after grilling. Chef Luigi understands that if fish is fresh and pasta is homemade there is no need to add a lot of ingredients and the result is simply delicious.

Our faves were the grilled prawns- crispy and sweet like popcorn and the Branzino was unbelievably fresh. My favorite pasta dishes were the fresh and full-bodied Gigli pasta with basil pesto and the succulent Troccoli pasta with lobster. Prices are affordable especially when you can BYOB. PASTA EATER is open for Lunch, dinner and dessert visit (212) 637-5910 9 East 17 Street New York, NY 10003
