Lavo NYC - fun dinner

My camera settings were off so I apologize for the bad pictures. I finally called Cannon to reset the camera.

I had Dinner at Lavo NYC. It was such a fun place. Not my first time but I guess the company I was with this time was better! They have a location in Vegas that also is wonderful and they are the same owners of TAO. Lavo is an Italian restaurant, Lounge and Nightclub. The decor reminds me of a French Bistro, simple vintage smoked mirrors and tiled walls and floors. We could not decide what to eat so we shared the scrumptious meal below. I was trying to count Weight Watcher points but then arrived the Zeppole Deep Fried Oreos and so I gave it up! lol I had so many people comment on Facebook about deep fried food, street and fair foods but this is different! It is gourmet, not greasy at all. Not saying street fried and fair fried foods are not good! But this is different. So the rest of the week I will be a good Weight Watcher's Girl and work out a little more to burn off the 2 Oreo's I ate.

Lavo in Italian means: I wash or I Clean! Well I guess that they knew people would clean their plates.
Tuna Tartare over avocado

Garlic Bread

Porter House Steak with Truffle Butter, Bearnaise sauce, truffle magic fries...can you say Oh My Goodness??

Deep Fried Oreo Zeppole, very light, dip in the cream cheese whipped cream that is definitely not too sweet.

That looks like a wonderful place to eat and to wash that sink and I'm assuming it was in the ladies room.

The porterhouse w/ truffle butter sounds wonderful! We went to a local restaurant, last year, that had a wine pairing coupled w/ a truffle dinner. It was amazing!

So read your comments & saw the offer for you to teach...are you going to do it? You should!
