Del Posto

I arrived in New York from Paris on my birthday.  My boyfriend surprised me with a fancy dinner at Del Posto.  Del Posto is another creation by Joe Bastianich, Lidia Bastianich and Mario Batali.  The space was grand and elegant.  You get the feeling that people dine here on special occasions.  We had the 5 course tasting with wine pairings.  The best parts of the dinner were the sweets we got before our desserts came out; the butter at the beginning of the meal.  I rarely touch the bread basket but I ate 2 rolls so I could spread the butter, and the little chocolates they gave us when we were leaving.
