Village Voice's Description
Kenmare has styled itself as a mere celebrity hang, but chef Joey Campanaro has a formidable reputation when it comes creating food that falls somewhere between comfort food and fine dining, first at Little Owl, then at Market Table. He has preserved his signature mixed-meat slider as a bar snack, and anything in a pasta vein is also recommended, including a dish of shrimp and spaghetti fra diavolo, which is as spicy as the name suggests. A breaded veal cutlet with salsa verde also delighted us, though the asparagus appetizer was too short on asparagus and long on arugula. The premises is darkened and stucco-ed, and may be the perfect place for a rendezvous at the bar, where you don"t need one of those nearly unobtainable reservations.
Tips from foursquare
This hangout from the impresarios behind the exclusive Rose Bar and Beatrice Inn is becoming a privileged pilgrimage of hip Manhattanites looking for a bite. Wear your best; it's all about the scene.
The food takes a backseat to the scene here (skip the gummy gnocchi) but you can’t go wrong with chef Joey Campanaro’s famous meatball sliders. There’s a good burger, too – but only at lunch.
This is the up-to-no-good-late-night prime location for one Louis Vuitton Friend of the House. Find out who at the LV Amble site.
Sponsored Tip: Start your epic night out here and enter the Code Sport Challenge for the chance to win an exclusive prize plus an Armani Code Sport Eau de Toilette. Also: try the meatball sliders!
Just order the meatballs. If they aren't on the menu, slide chef Joey C some scratch. Or beg. They are that good.
