The holidays are upon us! the other evening I attended a holiday party at the Arte Cafe located at 106 West 73rd Street, right off of Columbus Avenue. Located on the Upper West Side, Arte Cafe is located in a landmark brownstone steps away from beautiful Strawberry Fields. It is celebrating 30 years of family-owned service serving upscale Italian cuisine that includes artisanal homemade pizzas and gourmet desserts.

What to order?

Lately, I’ve been on a salmon theme, so it was no different tonight. I order Faroe Islands Salmon with Seasoned Herbs, Sauteed Spinach and Roasted Potatoes.

Arte Cafe was excellent! If you find yourself on the Upper West Side, it’s a nice place for dinner and Happy Holiday celebrations!

Latham House in Jersey City

I frequently dine around Manhattan while checking out the latest shows, jazz, and classical music venues. Friends recently reminded me that unique, excellent restaurants and sites could be found minutes away in Jersey City.

Pershing Square Café

I’ve often enjoyed Pershing Square Café’s wonderful breakfast specials and especially their legendary pancakes. After enjoying an early evening of swinging jazz across town at Birdland Jazz Club, I walked east from 8th Ave through Times Square on 42nd Street, past Bryant Park and Grand Central towards peaceful Tudor City. Nestled next to Grand Central where Park Avenue intersects 42nd Street is the Pershing Square Café. Tonight, it looked like the perfect quiet place for a post-jazz bite.

Tony Kadleck Big Band at Birdland

Swinging big band music was hot in Manhattan! From the moment the Tony Kadleck Big Band began their set at the Birdland Jazz Club, we tapped our toes and jumped to a tasteful, tight, polished sound, solid rhythm section, cats burnin’ solos, and sophisticated superb arrangements by trumpeter and band leader Kadleck.
