Shanea Savours: Marion Restaurant
…Marion bakes all of their own breads and ours was perfection. It was so good in fact I took home a few different loaves from their market. They sell a lot of their food and pastries to go.
We tried their signature dish of rotisserie chicken and was quite impressed. The rotisserie comes from France and the chickens from Marlin farms in upstate New York. The farm wins awards for the best chickens and I can see why…
Quiet and more elegant, which is a rarity in this part of town, MC Kitchen stands out from many other restaurants in this area. It’s uber-talented Chef, Dena Marino, was an Iron Chef alumni. The food is what I would call modern Italian cuisine with inventive takes on Italian classics. Chef Dena uses only fresh, seasonal ingredients.

Arriving at Pao, you walk up a circular staircase, are greeted by lovely and friendly hostesses, and they walk you inside a curtained area into the circular dining room, which is dominated by a 6.5 million dollar Damien Hirst Unicorn, raised in the center of the room. The menus focus is Contemporary Asian, and was designed by celebrity Chef Paul Qui. Qui, a James Beard award winner, dominated on Top Chef. He is of Filipino heritage and the menu had Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese and Filipino elements to it.
