It Was A Bravo Kind Of Day

Yesterday, I saw Goil from Top Design asking some woman for directions. He looked exactly the same as he did on TV. In fact, I think he might have been wearing those same clothes on an episode. I don't know where he was headed. My guess is to go spaz out over another giant towel rack or another dog bed on wheels.




Then for dinner, I went with a friend from college to Perilla, Season 1 Top Chef Harold Dieterle's new restaurant. It was one of the better meals I've had in a while. Everything was so yummy. The standouts for me were the Duck Meatballs, the Farro Risotto and the namesake Perilla Frozen Yogurt. If I had one criticism, I'd have to say that he could have done some more work on the interior design. It honestly looked like he ran out of money and started looking for the cheapest shit he could find.





Towards the end of dinner, I saw Andy Cohen, Vice President of Bravo Programming eating dinner, who I think is so adorable and who must have the best job on the planet.

I feel so ordinary.

Oh, Terrence. Nothing is wrong with ordinary. It could be worse. You could be Bobby Trendy. :)

I didn't know Harold's restaurant is in NYC and open! I'll have to check it out when I'm feeling rich.

I'm headed to Perilla pronto. I think Harold is a talented chef.

If my name is Goil, I'll be a mohel (moil).

You are not ordinary. You are a Blog Superstar. Okay, maybe not Superstar. But a star nonetheless.

Had dinner at Papatzul in SoHo tonight. It was really good, considering I don't like Mexican food that much. I had cerviche, guacamole and empanadas for appetizers (there were four of us), and grilled tuna for the entree.

i feel better now.

Well damn! You had a "bravo" day, didn't you?

I've been trying to get my ass in gear to go to Harold's place for a while now. One of these days I'll get around to it.

Have you started watching the new season of Top Chef? So much drama already.
