Deliciousnes in Rockafeller Center: Morell's

Gearing up for our trip to the NBC headquarters for Chef Ryan Brown's segment on WNBC's New York Nonstop, we prepped at Dean & Delucca. But once it was time to celebrate we were ready for some booze and a few tasty treats.  We were pleasantly surprised with Morell Wine Bar - which despite its location smack in Rockefeller,  offered an amazing meal without the tourist prices you'd expect in this neighborhood.

So what does a chef eat over a vodka soda celebration drink?  "Steak tartar," Ryan tells us - "I have to order it anytime I see it on the menu."
Once we got over the fear of the raw quail egg he expertly poured onto the raw steak and stirred into the horseradish, arugula Parmesan, & tuille blend, we had to admit it was fantastically delish.  The pumpkin fritters while not as adventurous, were equally flavorful. 

Congratulations to Choice Cooking Company for a fabulous first TV interview.  Next up: Fox5's Good Day on May 6th.

Morell's Wine Bar
1 Rockefeller Plaza@ 49th St

Go there's nice out side and you're craving a casual but foodie-worthy bite  in Rockefeller Plaza

Great for... big meals or tapas - awesome menu.

Not so great for...drinking only -  you won't be able to get seated outside.
