BOBBY VAN'S SECRET TO MARINATE PORTERHOUSE

****
BEST NEW YORK CITY RESTAURANTS
****

Bobby Van's Filet Mignon



You can expect one of the best dining experiences at Bobby Van’s Steakhouse in New York City. Visit the East 46th Street location and you’ll enjoy perfectly grilled dishes, engaging customer service, and the comfort of tradition. Bobby Van’s is likely to exceed all your expectations with expertly crafted dishes from the signature Filet Mignon to the traditional Porterhouse Steak.



This summer, brings more than just a sated appetite from Bobby Van’s. Chef Nile Medford shares tips on how to grill the perfect steak in your own backyard. It’s time to heat up your grilling skills!



For best results, marinate steak in 1 tablespoon of Bobby Van’s Steakhouse Original Sauce per steak along with any desired spices. The versatile sauce will give the steak a sweet and tangy flavor offset by a horseradish spice. Let the steak rest in the fridge for an hour before grilling on medium heat (never high), frequently turning the meat to keep the cut from sticking.



Health conscious grillers can try Bobby Van’s Steakhouse Original Sauce on fresh seafood for a lighter dining option. Chef Nile Medford recommends using seafood that is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, black sea bass and sole, as the natural oils will keep the fish from both sticking to the grill or breaking apart. This original sauce can be used as a marinade, salad dressing, or dipping sauce, and is sure to be a must-have at every summer cook-out.



Alternatively, for an elegant dining experience, visit the very first Bobby Van’s Steakhouse at 230 Park Avenue, also known as “The Orignal”. Since being established, in 1969, Bobby Van’s has prided themselves on decades of friendly and efficient service. The dark wood paneling against sleek white linens, and the warm color palette reflected off the Alabaster Chandelier creates an ambiance of luxury suited for fine dining.



About Bobby Van’s Steakhouse



Bobby Van’s Steakhouses have become a staple of New York City dining. Built with a dedication to superior customer service and quality food, Bobby Van’s maintains the same high standards over four decades later. With five locations throughout Manhattan, the West 50th Street Grill features a menu of traditional American grill fare, classic steakhouse cuts and wood-fired pizza. The restaurants’ friendly staff, warm décor and wide variety of dining options make this location ideal for those looking for a premier New York Steakhouse experience, with all the comforts of home.

ITALIAN SOPHISTICATION @ NEW YORK CITY'S MAMO

****
Executive Chef Massimo Sola of MAMO Restaurant

Wins Il Primo 2016’s Best Pasta in Manhattan
****

Fine Dining AT Mamo



Italian food in New York has seen an increased level of sophistication in recent years, with a number of talented chefs bringing traditional techniques, experience and products to this food metropolis. A competition that gathers all of these chefs for the utmost challenge is Il Primo Manhattan, in collaboration with Association of New York Chefs (AICNY), which features 70 chefs from the best Italian restaurants all over New York City. This year’s proud winner, who won over the jury of Italian and American food critics, was Michelin-Starred Executive Chef Massimo Sola of MAMO restaurant. Chef Sola’s winning dish was an exquisite spin on a traditional pasta carbonara, or as the judges called it, a “quasi carbonara” made with finesse and elegance.



Those who want to experience Massimo Sola’s award-winning pasta dishes can visit celebrity favorite MAMO restaurant in New York’s bustling SoHo neighborhood, which also serves up delicious seasonal a la carte dishes such as the fresh Salmon Carpaccio, a home-style Capri Salad, and Wild Sea Bass with fingerling potatoes. MAMO New York is the transatlantic sister to Cannes film festival go-to restaurant MAMO Le Michelangelo, a two decades old French Riviera staple and favorite among movie stars and socialites alike.



MAMO, the younger SoHo sibling, is run by Italian restauranteur Mike “Mamo” Mammoliti (son of MAMO Le Michelangelo’s Herve Mammoliti) and maintains the same authentic feel and dedication to Provençal flavors as its Antibes namesake. Just like MAMO Le Michelangelo, MAMO New York attracts a wide array of celebrities, including Rhianna, Magic Johnson, Alexander Wang, Diane Kruger, Samuel L. Jackson, Gigi Hadid, Beyonce and Jay Z.

Executive Chef Massimo Sola heads up the kitchen and the brand new spring/summer 2016 menu. A native of Italy, Sola grew up surrounded by the flavors and cooking style of the Italian/French Provençal cuisine. Drawing on colors and nature as inspiration, Sola is known for his simple yet eye catching dishes. Some of MAMO’s signature offerings include their flavorful Raviolini al Tartufo (truffle ravioli), Coniglio alla Ligure (rabbit legs with spinach and foie gras), the MAMO Burger and the Focaccia al Tartufo (truffle pizza). For those with a sweet tooth, MAMO also offers delicious desserts such as the classic Tiramisu, the rich Affogato alla vaniglia con fragole calde and the Cheesecake alla lavanda (cheesecake with a lavender twist).



To complement the flavorful dishes, MAMO also boasts an impressive cocktail menu from which diners can enjoy specialty cocktails such as the MAMO Negroni, the MAMO Spritz and the one-of-a-kind Martini Al Tartufo (truffle martini). Seasonal cocktails include the sour cherry flavored Amorena, the beautiful lavender Valentina cocktail and the smoky yet elegant Fumeè cocktail. In addition to the cocktail program, MAMO also has an extensive wine list of carefully selected French and Italian wines to complement the cuisine.



MAMO offers diners traditional southern Italian/French cuisine in an intimate yet elegant setting. The bi-level restaurant includes a casual lounge on the ground floor and a formal dining room upstairs. Both spaces capture the Riviera’s “sense of home” with original family photos and oversized vintage movie posters. The decor also incorporates classic New York-inspired touches such as exposed brick walls.
