Fashionplate- Jacqueline Kimono at Gelso &Grand

fashionplate gelso & grandThis week’s fashionplate features our new Jacqueline grey and blue striped kimono at a new Italian resto in the LES.  Gelso & Grand the baby of former nightlife promoter Nima Garos.  I like the open industrial layout and exposed break with the comfy red leather banquettes.  I went with a bestie for catch up sess and weekday dinner and had made a res but probably didn’t have too as it was about half full.  I ordered a Tuscan red and imagine to my surprise and delight when the gm comes out with complimentary champagne for both me and my friend to thank us for making a res.  Kudos on that extra attention to customer service.  Free drinks are even better than free food in my opinion.  I drank the champers first and saved the red to drink with my food.  We split the Brussels sprouts which were very yummy and had a kick with the  addition of chilies.  Then I went with lasagna since it’s made with eggplant and I love eggplant.  It was pretty yummy and I almost finished the whole thing. My friend got the  bolognese which was solid.  All in all good service and food.

The clientele was a mix between downtown kids, a family, and some tourists.  See the ootd deets of this fashionplate below.  My look was comfy and casual!
