Guys! The other day we did several InstaStories during a super cool brunch we went to in the West Village!
We went to Alexandra Restaurant, located at 455 Hudson Street and bumped Eran, the owner. Eran was born in Israel and moved to NYC 14 years ago!
He decided he’d open a small NY bistro with American cuisine, happy service and music. Besides, the restaurant, Eran works in the film industry, which is definitely an interesting work in NY.
Everything at Alexandra is very fresh (they go to the market every other day!) and cooked “a la minute”, so nothing is prepared before hand. It’s the type of place where they certainly don’t “try too hard” and do get it right on point!
This is for sure our type of place, since it’s not part of the NYC Scene.
What to try? Everything! We were in a big group, so we were able to try several dishes.
Their Calamari is definitely the b-e-s-t we’ve ever had. It’s not fried! It’s pan-seared and the taste is heavenly.
The Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Amish Farm Cage Free Chicken, Marscarpone Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus was a bit success. The Burger is a very simple tasty burger and worth it, if you're into burgers.
Their omelets, salads and desserts are all very good too!
Drink? Oh…Eran did this great Frozen Margarita that was perfect for this crazy hot and humid weather. The girls were into wine and couldn't stop the "refill".
They have live Jazz muic every now and then, so call them to see when the next show will happen!
