My colleagues and I were looking for a quick spot to get lunch and ended up at Faces and Names, a bar and lounge located Midtown West. This place gets its name from the multiple caricatures from Dan Springer of famous people like Miles Davis and Jeanette Lee, the Black Widow:
Or the Three Stooges:
The restaurant has several areas: the bar, the dining room and the lounge with its fireplace (you can see a painting of the Rolling Stones on the left).
In term of menu, they offer the classics: mini-burgers (apparently they are known for), wings, mini chicken tacos, shrimp cocktails...A bunch of choices perfect to eat in this kind of setting.
We sat in the bar area and picked some dishes from the bar menu. As I was going for a press dinner in the evening, I chose something light...I picked the tomato and mozzarella salad:
I could not resist and added some fried prosciutto! It definitely added some crunch to the salad that was very good, but a bit overdressed.
For dessert, they gave us what looked like a clafoutis: it was deliciously buttery and not too sweet.
This was a nice and quick lunch in a place with an interesting decor. I would definitely go back!
Enjoy (I did)!
