Little plates at Little Park

Little Park, Andrew Carmellini's farm to table restaurant in Tribeca is one of the most exciting restaurants in the city. Carmellini's dishes remind me of Blue Hill but costs a fraction of Blue Hill's menu. Little Park is the ideal spot for a date night, a girl's night or just about any other night. I went with friends and we shared a bunch of dishes, a lot of laughs and a full bodied pinot grigio from North Fork, LI (yay for local sourcing)!

P.S.- I recommend getting 2 dishes per person and sharing dessert. 

The place setting, ambiance and the menu are beautiful.
