What is the 1st thing you think of when someone asks you what is on 92nd street and Lexington avenue?
Duh- the 92nd street Y, where you can learn how to do just about anything!
What is the second thing?
A really cozy, high end Italian joint called Sfoglia-
My wife and I have been going for years and we always have very delicious appetizers and pastas when we go.
We usually sit at the bar as they always seem to be booked.
The restaurant is on the ground level of a brownstone and the décor feels like you would be in a villa in Italy.
This place is not cheap and there are some things that drive me crazy about the restaurant.
1- They never answer there phone (at least when I call), so a last minute ressie is virtually impossible if you want to dine within the next 30 minutes.
2- Forget about ever asking to substitute another pasta in a dish. I really have never understood this, having cooked for over 17 years professionally, but that’s how they roll here.
That being said, despite two things that drive me insane, we will continue to go back to the restaurant and continue to have quality meals, albeit, the bill will always be in triple digits.
