New York City is truly a magical city; full of life, love and amazing places to wine, dine and shine. This evening, JC and I joined some friends of ours for dinner at Gigino at Wagner Park, a restaurant with outdoor seating, by the water.
It was one of those nights that seemed to be straight out of a movie, with some of the most picturesque backdrops, including the Statue of Liberty, and the Freedom Tower.
I ordered the saporosa salad to start, which is made with roasted beets and butternut squash with goat cheese and toasted almonds over frisee – yum! For my main entree, I enjoyed the salmone amalfi coast – a corn meal dusted filet sauteed with onions, and served in a Positano limoncello cream sauce, with fresh orange and arugula – incredible! The meal ended with the coppa affogata – vanilla ice cream topped with hot espresso, preserved cherry and almond praline.
