It seemed like all of Manhattan showed up for the opening of Ember Room in NYC's Hell's Kitchen on Wednesday, February 2, 2011. Ember Room is the newest restaurant from renowned chef Todd English and it features a unique blend on American Asian Barbecue.

I had a chance to taste the food while I was at the party (I always feel very Carrie Bradshaw when I go to a restaurant opening) and I have to say that it was quite tasty! It is good to see successful chefs still caring about the taste of the food and not relying on their success or their name alone to keep people coming to the table. The dishes had a unique taste that married American and Asian flavors perfectly without one overpowering the other.

As the night progressed the Ember Room slowly turned from dinner party to dance party as the guest and staff danced and celebrated Mr. English's new endeavor. It was great to see the staff having fun and dancing with the guests as the night was winding down.

Congratulations to Todd English on another amazing restaurant! I am sure that it will be a success.
