I bet you my Monday night in New York was better than yours ;)
I had such a fun dinner with Marisa and Christine at Imperial No. 9. It's Sam Talbot's -of Top Chef fame- restaurant at the Mondrian in SoHo. On the website, it's called a "sustainable seafood concept", so let's go with that. That being said, we did order some beef and chicken which was really delicious too. Be prepared to share, as the dishes are quite large if you want to try a few things. It's such a beautiful space; we were lucky to get seated in the greenhouse atrium so that made it even better. Check out the website [here] to get better pics of the place!
Funny Ordering Story
P: We don't really know how to order, so we just picked 2 things each, and you tell us what you think
Waiter: Sure, go right ahead
M: We want a,b,c,d,e,f,g
Waiter: Um, that's too much for you ladies
M: Ok - we'll get that then!
