Koloman: A New 29th Street Find

Last night, hubby and I ventured into the dark streets of NYC (It’s getting dark earlier, people! Can we finally put an end to Daylight Savings pretty please?!?)

We were meeting friends – a couple who we have know for well over 20 years.

My husband was actually in the same fraternity as David Rosenblum, who’s now a pain specialist working in Brooklyn (you can read more about him in his SoMeDocs profile here), and we both went to med school with him, one year his junior.

So to say we go waaaay back would be a valid statement to make, and a fact we remind ourselves of every time we’re in each other’s company. They’ve become a part of our fam.

Anywho, we patronized (can you believe that’s a positive word? I looked it up and it seems to be the verb of ‘patron’ – who knew!) a new restaurant on West 29th Street, in NYC, called Koloman which, according to its site, bridges two worlds: turn of the century European cafe culture with the energy of today’s New York.

Cool.

 

Some of our dishes:

And finally, we topped things off with a souffle, which has been a dessert favorite of mine since my teens. Back in LA, I used to go to a little place that served a Grand Marnier souffle that was divine. You had to call 30 minutes in advance, or order it ahead of time, because they made each one fresh. IT was worth every minute of the wait.

Oh, and because some of you like to visit this site for the infusion of fashion, here is what I wore (you can read about it in the An Orange Faux Suede Number here):

Many of my clothing items are bargain finds, so if you’re a professional woman who likes to be in the know, consider joining the Lifestyle Finds group on FB, which I host.

This dress (and its details) is now there, in its own fun post.

Toodeloo.

We tried out a new eatery on NYC's 29th Street, and here's what we found. The food we ate, the people we ate it with.
