What are John Hendricks’ favorite restaurants?
In New York, I have several. When I’m staying at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park, Nobu on 57th is just a couple blocks away, so I always tend to eat there. And I like the Southwestern cuisine at Mesa Grill on Fifth Avenue. And my two favorite Italian places are Del Posto on 10th Avenue and Scarpetta. For seafood, we like Blue Water Grill.
My favorite restaurants in Bethesda are Raku — it’s Asian cuisine — and Mon Ami Gabi. And, having grown up in the South, there’s a restaurant down in D.C. that I love because it has shrimp and grits — it’s called Vidalia. The Bombay Club is another one — it’s on Connecticut Avenue. It has spectacular Indian cuisine.
