Must try:  Lasagnette, Special Mediterranean Fish

The Wynn offers some fabulous dinning options but perhaps the jewel in its crown is award winning Chef Paul Bartolotta’s eponymous restaurant Bartolotta, Ristorante di Mare.

When it comes to quality there are no expenses spared at Bartolotta. This Italian seafood gem has its crustaceans and fish flown in straight from the Mediterranean a few times a week, which offers diners signature items such as orata, purple snapper and pale pink langoustines. The food is outstanding – one of my favorites was the pink shrimp and the lasagnette.

Bartolotta is not just about the food though. Their service is just as flawless as the meal. The servers tend to patron’s needs with tremendous care, weaving in and out of the dining experience with deft expertise.

At Bartolotta you pay top dollar for an extraordinary experience. I think it is well worth the splurge for those really special occasions.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Buffalo Mozzarella

 

Special Grilled Shrimp

 

Spaghetti All’ Astice

 

Lasagnette Con Ragu di Crostacei

 

Summer Rissotto

 

Branzino

 

Vegetables

Christos Steak House, Astoria, NYC

Christos Steak House, Astoria, NYC

 

Christos Steakhouse on Urbanspoon

 

Christos Steak House in Astoria is a great spot for steak and more. Paying homage to its neighborhood, the talented Chef Mina Newman offers signature Greek appetizers and sides to go with an extensive selection of prime-aged meats and seafood.

The style of dishes served is very classic. The menu is rather extensive with many options, which is rather unusual for a steakhouse. I really enjoyed the grilled shrimp, seared scallop and the Christos salad as appetizers. The Lobster mashed potatoes is a huge favorite and comes loaded with chunks of lobster meat.

The service and ambiance at Christos is very pleasant. It’s no wonder that it is a local favorite in Queens.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Ribeye Cap

 

Balsamic Roasted Figs

 

Roquefort Broccoli

 

Grilled Shrimp

 

Seared Scallop

 

Christos Salad

 

Almond Crusted Goat Cheese and Endive Salad

 

Surf and Turf

Broccoli Rabe with Roasted Garlic

If you are craving Greek food, then there is no better neighborhood to hit than Astoria in Queens.

Amongst the teeming numbers of Greek restaurants, Chef-Owner Ardian Skenderi’s Taverna Kyclades seems to be one of the more popular spots, offering the freshest seafood at very affordable prices. At peak times the waits can be very long but the food is very worth it. Read the rest of this entry

NARCOOSSEES AT THE GRAND FLORIDIAN AT DISNEY WORLD, Orlando, Florida

NARCOOSSEES AT THE GRAND FLORIDIAN AT DISNEY WORLD, Orlando, Florida

 

Narcoossee's on Urbanspoon

Narcoossees is the extremely popular seafood restaurant at the Grand Floridian. The setting is very charming as it overlooks the lagoon and is a great spot to watch the fireworks at Magic Kingdom from. One can also catch the night-lights show on the lagoon.

Narcoossees is one of the fine dinning restaurants that the Grand Floridian offers. The price points are high and in my opinion the food does not live up to the hype. The scallops was the best dish of the night and their desserts were pretty good but other than that nothing impressed me. Next time, I’d save my Disney dollars and spend them elsewhere

Here is some of what we ate:

 

 

Crab Cakes

 

Crab Salad

 

 

Steamed Whole Maine Lobster

 

Scallops

 

Crab-Crusted Mahi Mahi

 

Grilled Filet Mignon

 

 

Warm Chocolate-Almond Gateau
