Food is one of the most important parts of any of our trips. Our trip to NYC was no different. We went to a few favorite spots and tried several new places. We found some great food! It is a good thing that we walked a lot on our trip because we sure did eat a lot!
Bull and Bear
540 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY 10022
We ate at the Bull and Bear Steakhouse after we went to the magic show at the Waldorf Astoria.
This was the first time that we had eaten here.
We had a drink in the bar on another trip, but didn’t eat dinner.
We got a great table next to the window.
We ordered the Burrata and Tomato Salad to start.
For our main dish, Chicken Legs got the filet and I got the Beef Tournedo crusted with blue cheese béarnaise and bordelaise. It was all fabulous!
We would definitely go back.
The restaurant was pretty empty on our visit. Hopefully it will be a little more lively next time.
Patsy’s is one of our favorite places to eat in NYC. We always eat here at least once on every trip.
We had reservations at Patsy’s on our first night in NYC. The hotel drove us to the restaurant. We walked up to the restaurant and TONY DANZA opened the door for me! I said Hey! It’s Tony Danza! Chicken Legs said Who’s The Boss? She’s the boss. Tony said to Chicken Legs I bet she is. LOL!
Back to the food! We ate at Patsy’s twice. We started with the Fried Mozzarella both times. It is so good.
For entrees, we got Spaghetti and Meatballs (A Neapolitan classic—veal meatballs seasoned with garlic and cheese, served with a tomato basil sauce), Veal Rollatine Marsala (Stuffed with mozzarella, Parmigiano-Reggiano and prosciutto in a sauce of Marsala and mushrooms), Pork Rollatine (Bacon-wrapped pork scaloppine stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto – roasted and finished in a reduction of pan juices and white wine) and Stuffed Pork Chop with Vinegar Peppers (Stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto – oven-roasted with sautéd garlic and cherry and vinegar peppers).
Everything was delicious! Patsy’s is old school Italian at its best. Everyone is so friendly!
