Psyched to check out Lowlife, a casual fine dining restaurant on the Lower East Side by Chef Alex Leonard (former Chef de Cuisine at Blanca). It just opened about a month ago and I’ve already heard so many good things. We got lucky and scored a spot at the chef’s counter, which gave us front row seats to all of the kitchen action. We watched the chefs create each dish from start to finish — so much fun! I absolutely loved every single dish that I ordered, especially the borscht — a simple, elegantly refined version of the traditional Ukrainian beetroot soup. In addition to the food being fantastic, the service was exceptional. Looking forward to seeing how the menu changes with the each upcoming season!
