Restaurant Review #2: One Sunset

Another week, another smorgasbord. Along with some of the food bloggers from last week and some new bloggers too, we happily sampled 10 small plates at The One Group's One Sunset. Apparently, every Tuesday for $45 you can sample 10 plates too and for just $1 more you also get a bottle of wine (Beringer). I asked our waitress if anyone ever not chose to spend the extra buck for the bottle and she said never, lol.

Our meal started off with a mini pancake as the chef de cuisine Chef Jason Ryczek explained that he wanted to take us through an entire day of eating. My favorites were the turkey meatballs marinara, which was very juicy and I was surprised it was turkey actually. I also found the Burrata and Strawberries salad refreshing and a nice salty sweet comparison. I'm not a fan of onion rings normally, but the seasoning on these crunchy onion strings almost tasted like calamari. The BBQ sliders were sweet but HC and I liked them. Surprisingly, I did not like the red velvet cupcake dessert, but I did enjoy their Vegan Godiva Chocolate sorbet with a shot of Disarona amaretto splashed on top, yummy!



Pablo Moix the mixologist for all of The One Group's restaurants was there again and shook up "The Master Cleanse" cocktail which is very much like the lemon and maple syrup diet drink but instead of water it's mixed with vodka, which was dangerous as I didn't taste the alcohol. My favorite though was the LUSHious Raspberry, which consisted of champagne, lime juice and raspberries, so yummy, refreshing and tart.

What I especially liked about One Sunset was that it had more of a lounge atmosphere and was less of a scene than STK. What I didn't like was the $9 valet charge, I mean seriously.

New bloggers I talked with this time included: Seeking Food, Food Destination, Right Way to Eat!, Food, she thought, kevineats.com and Teenage Gluster.

On the celeb front, Jennifer Aniston has been spotted at One Sunset several times, check out this People.com post with Demi Moore.

PS: Unfortunately, I did not win the Glam.com Lifestyle Award, however, I was the judge's finalist for Most Humorous blog. Wocka Wocka.

  2. Yay, another short-rib slider lover -- I'm a sucker for sweetened-up savory dishes, so that and the strawberry caprese really hit the spot for me.

    Great seeing you again at One Sunset! Hopefully will bump into you again in the future.
