Prippy Adventures... Sammy's Roumanian
Many, many months ago, an old friend mentioned how Sammy's Roumanian Steak House was one of the best spots in NYC. I didn't really ask for details, but took his word that Sammy's was great... and next time I was in NYC with a red meat craving I would check it out.
Well, I finally got around to checking out this Lower East Side spot last weekend with my best buds, Liz and Sam... and I've gotta say... it was one hell of an experience! Having no real expectations other than steak was definitely the right approach, because lord knows there is no real way to prepare for a meal "Sammy's Way."
After our fantastic waiter explained some of the more traditional Jewish dishes to us, we ordered the classics... like chicken livers a la Sammy's. Gotta say, I thought it tasted much better than it looked...
Liz did not agree with me!
But Liz did get something extra special at Sammy's... the love and attention of the absolutely amazing house act, Dani Luv! Not only did he work her name into lyrics while playing away on his keyboard ("The Liz From Impanema")... but he gave us free shirts and the hardest laughs we can remember in recent history!
All in all, I can't wait for my next trip to Sammy's. Simply put... it is an unbelievable experience!
P.S. - I'd recommend getting the vodka and latkes for dinner!
