Monday Smorgasbord – July 18th

Boo Mondays. This week in food looks like..more Restaurant Week, Guac Rock and tastings.


Places I'd Like to Try ASAP (and offer RW menus):

DBGB:  A classic that shockingly, I have never been to. RW menu here 

Gravy: Hitting this one up this week. And yes I know..I would. RW menu here

Junoon: Indian spot in Flatiron thats supposed to be delish.. RW menu here


Places YOU Should Try ASAP (and offer RW menus):

Ilili: Was just here last week for lunch and it was really good (service was not though). I had falafel, hummus, and a few bites of this lamb dip sandwich that was glorious (think French Dip but with lamb instead of roast beef). RW menu here

Chinatown Brasserie: Kind of an oldie, but I've been here for RW twice and I always enjoyed it. RW menu here

Lupa: Mario Batali's place in the West Vill always satisfies my carb cravings with their delicious pastas. RW menu here

Guac Rock is tonight! I posted about this last week and frankly I don't feel like repeating myself. So here's the link to the original post. It's a party on a boat with lots of guac and free tequila from 8-9 pm. Admission is $25. Need I say more?
