Christina Tosi, chef and founder of New York’s award-winning Milk Bar bakery, knows a thing or two about amazing food. Aside from her own culinary achievements (which have earned her several James Beard Awards), Milk Bar is an off shoot of David Chang’s world-famous Momofuku restaurant group, and she has worked in some of the city’s best restaurants. We wanted to find out where this adventure seeking business woman likes to eat when she travels around the country visiting her many Milk Bar storefronts, so we asked...

About the restaurant
My favorite restaurant of Jose Andres’ long before I decided to become a chef. This place offers an innovative menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines - a true crowd pleaser.

We LOVE Zatinya - the food and even the cocktails don't disappoint. My only criticism is that last night, given my reservation reflected that it was my birthday and the host even mentioned it - I was surprised to be shown to what is probably the worst table in the restaurant - basically between the entrance to the very busy bar and the front door - zero ambiance or good vibe. However when we requested a change, since we agreed to wait, the host was great and we got a MUCH better table ---the birthday celebration dinner was perfect in the end.

About the restaurant
Breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks, this is the Milk Bar crew’s home base in DC. A round of pommes frites for the table is a must (mayo + ketchup on the side, always & obviously).

About the restaurant
A slice of home away from my NYC home. This elegant eatery is sure to please your taste buds. Be sure to check out the Giannini Bar for a drink before or after your scrumptious dinner.

About the restaurant
Nancy Silverton is a boss. I always get her chopped salad at Pizzeria Mozza, but her Ribollita Da Delfina, toasts/bruschetta and ALL the pastas at Osteria Mozza keep me coming back. Plus, I can walk to Milk Bar for dessert afterwards - huge win in my book!

Gotta support my co-host, plus I'd order 6 beef Wellington’s to my room if I could. If steak is your thing, this is your place.
