In New York for meetings this week, and headed out with some team members for a nice dinner in SoHo. One of the locals picked Fiamma, self-described as ‘Sleek, sexy, sophisticated’, a solution the BR Guest management company has duplicated in both Las Vegas and Scottsdale. That said, service was great, we had a great 1995 Roagna Barbaresco, and Drew Barrymore was sitting two tables down from us. In other NYC restaurant news, the famed Michelin guide released ratings for some 507 NY eateries in the five boroughs, and the book goes on sale this Friday. Only four received the coveted 3-star rating (Alain Ducasse, Jean Georges, Le Bernadin and Per Se), but Daniel, described by the NY Times as being in the top rank of NY restaurants, took only two stars. The Times run down is worth a look, and I look forward to the full reviews on Friday.
