This 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!
