A couple of months ago my mom came to visit my ‘new diggs’ in upper, upper Manhattan. On her flight she happened across this article and insisted we go check out the up-and-coming eatery in the neighborhood.  Alas, we did not have time during her whirlwind weekend trip.  Last night, I finally made it to Red Rooster.

It’s wonderful! Tuesday is latin night so the restaurant was packed, pulsing with latin-samba beats. Their drinks menu is to die for. We didn’t have time for dinner yesterday (I’ll have to go back soon) but we did try some of the desserts. If you make it up there this winter I highly recommend their Spiced Pumpkin Cake for a warm and cozy treat!
