I have decided to dedicate my first post to one of my favorite places out there… Cipriani. This restaurant has several locations around the world, but my absolute favorite is located in the concrete jungle’s very own SoHo.
We started off with bellinis of course, and followed our lunch with a burrata with sundried tomatoes and olive oil as a starter, the burrata was perfectly creamy and the whole plate was mouth-watering. For entrées we had a spaghetti pesto, which is not usually my favorite but was perfectly al dente, and the truffled sirloin that was perfectly done. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with the dessert, since lemon meringue pie is among my favorites and in this particular case it was a little too sweet (this said by the girl with the sweetest tooth of them all), but the little buttery lemon cookies they serve just before coffee made up for it. Nevertheless, I must admit I’m a fan of this place, its ambiance, and its delicious plates. Hope to be going back soon!
