New York City is known as a place to party. This is where the stars come and throw parties. There are televised specials with parties for New Year’s Eve. There are concerts throughout the year with lots of big named artists. New York is also home to a lot of private parties simply because there are a lot restaurants. I have been invited to more parties than I have time to attend. I can’t be everywhere, but there are some parties that I refuse to miss. Much of my decision making has to do with the restaurants that my friends are having these parties.
I am attending any party that is thrown at Franny’s because I love the menu here. It is actually a decent family restaurant, and that is not always so easy to find in NYC. Lunch and dinner is served her, and the pizza is awesome. I think that this is reason enough to go here, but that is not all that this served here. This is a contemporary Italian restaurant. I have been to a wedding here once and everything turned out great.
Another spot that I never miss out on is Tarallucci e Vino. This is another Italian restaurant that always has my attention. Whenever I am invited here I always find a way to make it. The food is so awesome. I have even been here for a conference in the lecture room. I didn’t really want to attend the conference at all. I did, however, have a desire to get some of the food since Tarallucci e Vino was doing the catering. This is just how great the menu is. I attended a conference that I didn’t really care for just to eat here.
There are places in New York that have that type of effect on patrons. Tarallucci e Vino has four locations to cater to people in different areas through the city. I like the dinner menu here because just about everything goes well with a glass of wine. East Village is the location that I go to the most, but the conference that I attended was at a lecture room at the Cooper Hewitt location. I think that the Cooper Hewitt location may be the biggest one. There are multiple rooms for different types of events here. There is even an outside area for people that want to have a big wedding outdoors.
It takes a lot of time to get around in New York. I don’t have a lot of time to spend going to parties where the food is not good. I also have to like the vibe of the location. That is why I always consider the venue before I confirm. China Blue is another restaurant that I will always go to when I am invited. It is downtown, and I already hang out a lot down there anyway. I love the menu and the decor is pretty cool and spacey. I really love the vibe here.
