empire state south

this past weekend, we were actually in town, not working, and had no definite plans. we had not been out on a date night in a very long time, and it was the perfect opportunity to try a new restaurant that opened down the street from us called Empire State South.

expecting the contemporary, trendy decor and loud acoustics that usually prevails in new restaurants today- i was taken back. when you walk back to the main entrance, there is a nice patio with a pristine courtyard to wait for your table. inside, there is a rustic feel but extremely welcoming and homey.

 

perfectly seasoned boiled peanuts

 

 

yeast roll & grilled sour dough bread served with honey butter

 

 

excellent scallops (really, really, good!)

 

 

and the best part: it's in the heart of midtown
