We were lucky enough to score an invite to Delicatessen's recent Summer In Soho affair, which brought together the food press, regular customers and just some good looking peeps from "da nabe." The whole purpose of the affair was for exec chef Michael Ferraro and pastry chef Kate Cowan to show off how they've tweaked the menu for the height of summer, when the all-day eatery is at its most crowded. In case you have not been to Delicatessen, it specializes in"international comfort food" although the beautiful people who flock there hardly look like they gorge themselves on the creative and generously portioned cuisine there! Delicatessen truly looks like a set from Sex and the City, but the food is super luscious and they are not afraid to deep fry when they have to!
Of course, we downed a couple of the Tilly cocktails before we started chowing down. This red-pink drink consists of muddles strawberries and limes shaken with Satisfaction Vodka and pomegranate juice. Dare we say it? We got enough"satisfaction" for Mick and all the Stones--and then some. There is truly nothing like a strawberry cocktail on a humid NYC day, and this one's awinner because it's not only refreshing, but all the lime pulp gives it an extra refreshing kick.
