Want Wine & Chocolate? Try AYZA

Angry Chicken Lollipops

I was meeting a friend for girls' night and knew exactly which restaurant we should try. AYZA is always near the top of Urbanspoon's NYC restaurant list and I've had a hard time drumming up enthusiasm from The Mr to try it out. But as soon as I said the words "wine and chocolate" my girlfriend was totally in. It also worked well that they had a Midtown location since we work on opposite ends of the isle of Manhattan.

We started with a glass of free wine (you can 'Like' them on Facebook to get a coupon) and then ordered a few appetizers to split: the Angry Chicken Lollipops, White Truffle Pizza, and Grilled Baby Shrimp...

The appetizers were all good. Nothing special, but tasty. You could easily eat somewhere else and just come here for dessert without missing much. OR you could get a few appetizers and then have room for dessert like we did. They have an extensive Jacque Torres truffle list, but my friend isn't too crazy about truffles, so we got the Chocolate Molten Cake. Gooey, chocolatey and delicious.

AYZA isn't necessarily the one of the BEST restaurants in NYC, but it's a great spot for a date or night out with girlfriends. It's got wine, chocolate, outdoor seating and a convenient location, which is sometimes all you need.
