Not too long ago, I had dinner with two friends. The duo are sisters who have very different personalities, and both are very charming. Their company was enhanced by an adorable restaurant: Refuel Bar and Restaurant at the Crosby Street Hotel in Soho. The food played a beautiful accompaniment to our melodically exaggerated conversations. See for yourself. Here’s a pic of the buttery smoked salmon.:
And the dish that finally turned me on to brussels sprouts (note the bacon).:
And a salad that made eating greens a privilege.:
And some fish tacos that the waiter recommended.:
And my favorite, the seared scallops with corn relish and charred jalepeños.:
