Continued - Saturday, January 24, 2008 - Dinner
Felidia – Italian - East 58th/between 2nd & 1st
Tasting menu, three antipasti:
Stuffed Roasted Quail
Wine - Amarone
5 types of Italian Cookies
Decided to check out the restaurant of the Queen of Italian food. This restaurant was recommended by my nephew Bram. Lidia is the business partner of Mario Batali in Del Posto. The flavors were refined and clean. No masking but more of collaboration of flavors.
Delicious Italian food and tradition formal surroundings. Dark wood panels and red floral wallpaper. Service was impeccable - we did not know who our waiter or waitress was because everyone served us. Everyone was knowledgeable and friendly.
Snack - since Felidia's was 2 blocks from the famous "frozen hot chocolate" drink and they don't close until 2am, we thought we could endulge a little.
Serendipity 3 - I just love the atmosphere of eclectic craziness and the architecture of this building.
