Feels like it’s been a while since I had a food post!
Treated my friends Yasir and Sarah (aka YasRah) to dinner after they got married a while back at Sosa Borella in midtown. The Italian-Argentinian cuisine sounded promising.
I love the outside of the restaurant, all white with an outdoor patio on the 2nd floor; looks like they took a slice of Italy and planted it in NY. It feels like you’re eating in someone’s comfortable, dimly lit, wooden-floor kitchen. The food though, was just OK.
I was expecting something really different since it was considered a fusion cuisine, but it seemed very — normal? — to me. It was too bland, and I remember thinking the fries were comparable to McD’s..but not as good. Sorry.
The chocolate cake-hazelnut gelato dessert and cappuccino were good though! Maybe this place can be a nice pit stop for dessert?
Still trying to find more yummy restaurants in midtown!
