David’s Favorite Hot Spots

If anyone would know “the” places to eat, drink and be seen in either LA or New York City, it’s My Fair Wedding‘s David Tutera. The bi-coastal wedding and entertainment expert just isn’t a pro at bringing a ballroom to life—the author of My Fair Wedding: Finding Your Vision…Through His Revisions! also excels at selecting cocktail recipes and food pairings to complement any special event. So with all of his years of experience, we were wondering which places receive a gold star in his book on both the east and west coasts. (And he even shares his new favorite cocktail!)

LA:

My new favorite restaurant in Los Angeles….is Bagatelle [755 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, 90069, 310-659-3900, www.bistrobagatelle.com]. It just opened up three or four weeks ago.

For more of an old-school LA joint…I go to Mastro’s [246 North Canon Drive Beverly Hills, CA 90210 (310) 888-8782, www.mastrosrestaurants.com] with my friends. And I also love…Dan Tana’s [9071 Santa Monica Boulevard West Hollywood, CA 90069, (310) 275-9444, www.dantanasrestaurant.com]. Oh, and I love the SoHo House too [9200 Sunset Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069 (310) 432-9200, http://www.sohohousewh.com], although it is membership-only.

For drinks I like to go to….the Abbey [692 North Robertson Boulevard West Hollywood, CA 90069 (310) 289-8410, http://abbeyfoodandbar.com/]

NYC:

My home away from home in New York is….The London Hotel [151 West 54th Street New York, NY 10019 (866) 690-2029, www.thelondonnyc.com]. Great food, great service, great people, great everything.

One of my favorite romantic spots is….One if By Land, Two if By Sea [17 Barrow Street New York, NY 10014 (212) 255-8649, www.oneifbyland.com].

Always a great place for dinner is….Gramercy Tavern [42 East 20th Street New York, NY 10003 (212) 477-0777, www.gramercytavern.com/] Eleven Madison Park has great food too. [11 Madison Avenue Manhattan, NY (212) 889-0905, www.elevenmadisonpark.com] And Shun Lee West has the best Chinese food on the upper west side. [43 West 65th Street New York, NY 10023 (212) 595-8895, www.shunleewest.com]

And while my favorite drink is whiskey on the rocks, my new favorite drink is…the moscow mule (vodka, ginger beer, and lime).
