January was so cold and grey. And I was off the booze, which didn't help. But come the 31st January, it was time for some fun. Some of my mum friends and I went to Wimbledon Park to check out the opening of NYEAT - a new restaurant and cocktail bar. We were quite eager to enjoy American cuisine and sample lovely cocktails.
Actually, after over four weeks of abstaining from alcohol, I was afraid to try a cocktail. I had a gin and tonic (with Brooklyn Gin - amazing!). My friends were drinking mojitos and porn star martinis, and I have to admit being a bit jealous. But as I felt buzzed off one G&T, I knew I made the right choice. NYEAT offers a huge array of cocktails. I'll need to go back when I can handle booze again.
We all skipped starters, and had a variety of mains including steak, lobster, ribs and prawns. The food was delicious and many of us were unable to finish our food. We decided to share a couple of portions of cheesecake for dessert as we couldn't manage anything more. NYEAT is currently only open for dinner. It is such a great place for dinner with friends, and I can imagine going back for date night.
NYEAT is more than your average restaurant. The decor is urban yet glamourous. Their walls are made for Instagram. I think they should open for boozy brunches. I'm thinking waffles and unlimited Prosecco. And plenty of posing for Instagram. Welcome to Wimbledon, NYEAT.
