Dining at Hotel Rivington (I believe the correct name of the area is “CO-OP Food & Drink”) was just as tasty to the mouth as it was appealing to the eye. I live for hidden spots like these. First and foremost you walk into this cave like doorway, dope right, already you feel like you’re about to step into some list only, exclusive restaurant.
Except it’s the opposite, you’re stepping into a hotel first and then…steer right, you hit the dining area.
Any artsy girls, aka ME, dream. Wall covered murals to the right and to the left a gallery of people including icons like Betsey Johnson (my fav!). So besides sitting pretty, I like to eat pretty too and so another pro to this restaurant is the food. Plates are made to share which was perfect for my date and I, right before thanksgiving. Prices were pretty fair, we started off with drinks of course. Then we had a plate of Ginger Bread Chicken and a couple of plates of Mash Potatoes: home cooking style. It is said that menu is made to include a range of ‘globally inspired, locally sourced cuisine’ . So in other words, it sounded fancy, looked fancy but tasted just like your momma made it back in the days in her own kitchen, can you say Winning?!?! I’d give this restaurant a thumbs up. We went on a weeknight and it was quiet and cozy. The seats are made for under the table cuddling too, after all its cuffin’ season!!!! 😉 😉 😉
