Neo Trattoria 15-01 149 Street in Whitestone

 

On the last night of my dear brother’s stay here in the US, he craved great Italian food. So Gary and I took him to NEO Trattoria and Wine Bar. I had never been but Gary had dined there once. All I can say is that the food was the best I had eaten EVER in the Whitestone area. Service lovely. Inviting room which by the way, the owner, Antoinette, proudly exclaimed is kid-friendly, and the food…well the food was amazing!

 

I had something very unique and delicious; an artichoke and pistachio swarm sautéed over mâché which is a lovely light green salad with parmigiano reggiano cheese and a lemon wine sauce. I just loved it. It was like a delicious pasta without the carbs. Have it, period. My brother had a gorgeous rich but not heavy fettucine(homemade) bolognese. Gary loved his fettucine with a creamy prosciutto sauce.

 

If you like Italian cheesecake, order this for dessert. It was worth the calories! But if not, no prob, you will be served complimentary biscotti, just like you will be served a complimentary amuse bouch at the start of your meal.

 

I really felt like I had missed something by not going to NEO sooner. But now that I have, I probably will be there a lot, and at other Italian restaurants not do much.

 

Thank you to my adorable and gracious waiter, I don’t  know your name, and to Antoinette who  loves to serve and will give you and your date, or you and your family and guests a very warm welcome. Tell then Judy sent you. They may not remember me, but if they do, they will know that you expect the best, in any case, if you love great food, you will absolutely get it. It gets my energized X5 rating!!

 

A Fine Dining Experience in the Bay Terrace Shopping Center

Whenever a new business opens in our area, I want to be there to check it out.

So two days ago I visited the new deli at the Bay Terrace Shopping Center, Kuzina Kabaret.  I was unsure at first because with my Weight Watchers diet limiting the quantity of my intake, the quality has got to be the best.  And I, in the mood for an amazing salad made just the way I want it.

Jimmy, one of the owners of this new establishment who h just opened last Tuesday, did not disappoint me: he had me pick my favorite variety of fresh greens and then offered me my choice of up to 5 add ons from a huge selection. Then he chopped those delicious fresh ingredients up to perfection and added just enough dressing to satisfy my appetite and still stay within my points for all you Weight Watchers.

I recommend this place very highly. The place I amazingly clean, sparkling even, and the meats and prepared salads looked as good as everything else. Let me know what you think. As for me, this place gets 4 full charges!!
