Food Tasting in Coney Island's Kitchen21 Restaurant

hi guys! It's been one heck of a year already! How are we already in July and how is Summer 2017 already here?! It's kinda insane thinking about it. Time goes by so fast, almost feels like it's getting harder and harder to hold on to all the memories.

Between my hectic work schedule, blogging, and wedding planning, I managed to find some time to attend an amazing event with Kitchen21.  Yay me! Lol

Kitchen21 has been open for a month and it is looking like the new It Spot for all the Brooklynites and New Yorkers for 2017. With the sea breeze blowing in your hair, as you sip on your rosé, Kitchen21 will remind you that life is too short to stress about the dally woes. And if you ever need an hour to escape reality, I suggest coming here.

The restaurant is huge! It features an 80 foot bar, delicious food, and such amazing hospitality.I am so thankful to have sat with some of NY's best bloggers and the new team over at Kitchen21.  Now, let's get to the real reason why you're here, the food!!

For our first course dinner, we had pizza and lots of it! Take a look at below for breakdown of our tasting.

After the first course, I was pretty much stuffed! I was stuffing my face with so much bread and carbs, I didn't realize we had two more course AND dessert left before the end of the night. The second course focused more on seafood, which the gals at the table were definitely excited for! I'm not huge fan of seafood, but the food was received with praise and love from the other bloggers with me, ESPECIALLY at the table I sat at! Take a look below for the second course.

Food tasting at Kitchen21 was the best night out of my entire week. The food was spectacular and it totally made the 2-hour commute home SOOOO worth it. I can't wait to head back. I ended my night with some S'mores, quick walk through the restaurant, and a beautiful stroll on the boardwalk. 

Thank you for reading & thank you to Kitchen21 for an amazing night out and
