After all of the Fashion Week craziness of skipped meals and existing on the teeny, tiny appetizers served at events and lounges, it was absolute heaven to relax and enjoy a chef’s tasting dinner at Davio’s Manhattan. Davio’s is located in the same building as the fabulous Hotel Boutique Grand Central; my home away from home during New York Fashion Week. Italian food has always been my comfort food and I needed it more than ever last week.
My meal began in the best way possible; with freshly baked popovers with salted Vermont butter and a sparkling rose. At that point, I would have been completely content making a meal out of the popovers but it was only the beginning.
Each course was drool-worthy and just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, another course was served and I was transported to a Northern Italian heaven on earth.
From the burrata pesto ciabatta to the beet salad and then lemon ricotta ravioli, each course was divine. The service was outstanding and I loved my seat facing the kitchen. The bubbly was flowing and just when I thought I couldn’t eat another bite…
Deconstructed tiramisu and deconstructed strawberry shortcake – oh, my! My meal at Davio’s was truly a highlight of my time at NYFW. It’s amazing how a simple thing like sitting down for a proper meal (especially Italian) can make everything feel right in the world.
