Earlier this year, a few friends discovered Ricardo Steakhouse in Spanish Harlem. We scheduled a dinner of sorts for a bunch of us there soon after so we would all have the opportunity to check it out first hand. Let me start off by saying this: You will not leave Ricardo’s sober.
Both times I’ve been there, I have been lucky enough to hear quite a few birthday celebrations. This most recent visit included two friends with birthdays in the month of November. When it is someone’s birthday here, you get shots….Okay….Well, you get shots regardless. I think we’ve been setting a new record high every time we visit. The time before last was 5 shots (all free) and this time we had at least 6 or 7 free shots. Crazy stuff! They also play a birthday-related song for you. This can be 50 Cent’s rendition or a bit more of a classic. Do not come here if you do not want to dance while eating and drinking.
Above are two of the desserts the birthday girls received. All followed by a shot and a song. Definitely stop by Ricardo’s if you have a chance. You will not be disappointed.
Have a very happy Thanksgiving! Be merry and eat and drink and watch football.
