Maialino

Last night I went out for a very decadent dinner with Dennis and Abe at Maialino.  Dennis is shipping off to Nantucket for the summer so we wanted to hit up one more Danny Meyer dinner. 

We started off the night at The Raines Law Room, which is a speakeasy in the Flatiron.  You have to ring a bell to get inside and once you're inside it's like a dark and cozy living room.  I had the French Affair and the Old Cuban.  Both were super good.  I could drink the French Affair all sumer long.

The food was absolutely incredible and the service was fantastic.   I normally eat like a vegetarian - I don't even do fake meat, but I will eat (or at least try) almost anything when the dishes are worth it.  I think my favorites of the night were:  fresh pasta with rabbit ragù, salt baked sea bass, and the hazelnut chocolate bread pudding.

It's hard to pick though - we had 10 dishes in total and they were all incredible (we're feeling pretty sick today).
