Candle 79 is one of the best restaurants ever as far as I am concerned! It’s on the UES so a bit of a hike for us, but makes the ultimate date night spot. Romantic, Cozy and deelish!! Check out my review from 2009.
But I went there for a very different reason recently. I had my fabulous Babies Blessing Brunch Party there. SO much fun, a bunch of beautiful girlfriends and the best food to celebrate the almost arrival of our little kiddos Benay, the manager, was amazing in helping me set up this event and everything went super smooth. The food of course was deelish!
My mom made fabulous favors: Super cute planters all prepped with organic soil and seeds and a super cute flower on top So perfect!!
Thanks ladies! Such a great day to celebrate!!!

chipotle black beans, caramelized onions, cucumber-jicama salsa, tortilla chips, ranchero sauce
