Holy cannoli! It’s been FOREVER since we have done a restaurant review. I can certainly tell you why though; I haven’t been staying put in NYC this summer long enough to actually go to a great dinner. It’s been all about casual seafood spots on the water, grilling at a house, grabbing things on the go, etc. I did go to one fantastic dinner last week at Barbounia, a Greek place here in NYC, and it would have made for a great review.. but like I said – restuarant dinners have been too far and few between this summer that I wasn’t about to ruin a good time by whipping out my camera.
Anyway, I was speaking to some foodie friends of mine about how our next dinner out together has got to be at Balaboosta, a great Mediterranean/Middle Eastern resto on Mulberry Street. What’s kind of crazy is I can remember my ultra hip supervisor at my last internship (3 years ago!!!) tell me that I just HAD to try Balaboosta. Years later, this place is still a hit. Sure, there’s always a new restaurant opening in NYC, but the good ones STAY good throughout the years.
What you can expect to see on the menu:
Crispy Cauliflower with lemon, currants, pine nuts (ah-mazing)
