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.

I feel special treatment every time I go. I notified the restaurant that there was a birthday in our group, and we were served a beautiful, complimentary dessert.

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!

Food was exceptional, and pasta tasting menu was very well valued! Service was quite spotty though, with the pacing of the courses/wine pairings just a bit off. I felt they were in over their heads even at the bar for the first 5:30pm seating. I don't know that I'd sit at the bar again but would rather wait for an actual table.

About the restaurant
Classic, plus my pops used to run it and it was one of my husband's first jobs. This farm-to-table spot offers seasonal menus with the freshest produce there is!

This location is superb and from the moment you walk in until you step foot out the door it’s perfection. I love coming here. My favorite place, my favorite food. I just love it!

About the restaurant
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.

Great food, just a little pricy. What we paid for a tomahawk was a lot. It had a lot of fat that we didn’t want to pay for or eat. Overall, it was great.
