012|365 Dinner with Rob

In the spirit of an annual tradition I had a holiday dinner with Rob Beltran on Monday night. Normally the tradition takes place in December, but due to schedules and early winter colds we were delayed to January.

It is always great to spend time with Rob. He is a great colleague and a better friend. And he has good taste in wine.

We originally planned to go to Beppe which is an old standby, but then since I had like 10,000 bags we decided to drop them first and go somewhere near my overnight digs. We were planning on Country but got a recommendation to try Olana which was just a few blocks away on Madison between 27th and 28th. It was awesome. They bill themselves as American with an Italian and French twist. They had a great attention to detail and the owner Patrick makes you feel personally welcome. Plus, they had a good wine list and Patrick made a great recommendation, Barrua from Italy. It was a great time and we got to catch up on the past year and do some planning for the year ahead. Thanks Rob!
