Lunch at SANTINA on the HIGH LINE

Santina is is a coastal Italian restaurant created by Mario Carbone……….[whose other restaurants I am not fond of]………. but, this new venture is a “hoot and a holler” on Washington Street…..at the foot of the HIGH LINE.

LOTS OF SEAFOOD>>>>>>>>LOTS OF GRILLING

The dishes are beautiful…..the plating is beautiful……..the dining room is beautiful.  When you are in this atmosphere……life is beautiful……….and I want one of those chandeliers for my apartment!

Lady Gaga showed up that night for dinner.
