What happens when a brand new blogger who describes herself as "charmingly Id-driven, a full time capitalist, sometimes student living with my boyfriend in midtown Manhattan," that likes "my steak medium-rare and expensive" eats at Lavo, the new Italian restaurant and nightclub? Nothing good. "The restaurant was sparse. No reason to force us to the 5:45 slot other than to put us under the impression, for all of a day, that this was the place to be...And finally, after dinner we were denied admittance to the club." At least all of the Lavo reviews on Yelp are positive. [Alice in Manhattan]
