This week’s fashionplate features our brand new Fall/Winter 2016/17 eyelash sweater at the new Batali resto in the Maritime Hotel. I love going to places that are close to my apartment and have been wanting to check out La Sirena for a while. After an event I was starving and in need of wine and we found ourselves at the luxe spacious bar sipping some wine while waiting for a table to open up. Once we were seated my dining companion and I decided to try a few things. We started with the fresh buricotta which is a decadent and creamy cheese that melted in my mouth. We also got the crudo which was standard and fresh. I’m a pasta/carb whore so I had to go in for it and get at least two. The cavatelli with spare ribs was hearty and delicious. We also adored the panzotti with leeks, cheese and a brown butter sauce, totally my kind of pasta dish. We rounded the meal out with the duck breast medium rare which was also great. All in all it was a great Italian meal where I needed to be carted out of the resto, thank god it’s a short walk home. I definitely will be back to check out brunch outside now that it’s getting warmer.
This place gets packed so if you don’t want to wait I would make a reservation even though it’s a large space. The crowd is lots of trendy twenty and thirty-somethings plus some older business dinners and tourists. Definitely dress to impress. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
