Sundy House Review

Just about everything in this bungalow-style B&B is executed to perfection—especially its tropical, verdant grounds, which are actually a nonprofit botanical garden (something anyone can check out during free weekday tours) with a natural, freshwater swimming pool where your feet glide along limestone rocks and mingle with fish. Guest rooms are luxuriously decorated, and some offer full kitchens and laundry facilities. Situated a few blocks south of Atlantic Avenue, the inn's only real downside is a long walk to the beach (although the complimentary shuttle lessens the inconvenience). Dine at the exceptional restaurant under an expansive indoor canopy or on the patios set among the koi ponds.

    Dine in the Beautiful Garden

    THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE RESTAURANT, NOT THE HOTEL

    My spouse and I dined at Osteria Morini in the Little Italy/SoHo area for Sunday brunch in mid-December 2012. (Osteria Morini has a second location in Bernardsville, NJ.) We were some of the very first guests to arrive; however, the space filled quickly with other diners until every table was taken. (We even saw Kelly Ripa, her husband [Mark Consuelos], and their children dining while we were there.) We reserved our table using the Open Table reservation system. The restaurant serves lunch (weekdays only), dinner daily, and brunch on weekends. We chose Osteria Morini for Sunday brunch because they served items other than just eggs and breakfast-y options on their menu. (We are not big breakfast-eaters for items like eggs and pancakes.) We particularly enjoyed the various crostinis available, especially the veal crudo.

    Both the physical space and the food style are rustic, setting a comfortable farmhouse atmosphere for the tasty cuisine. We have eaten at chef Michael White's more formal restaurant Marea, so this restaurant concept provides a nice contrast, with a more casual and more affordable menu options. The restaurant has a large bar towards the front, with reserved seating, and we can see why - if you are interested in salumi and cheese, it is sliced at the counter, providing some interesting entertainment for your meal.

    Michael White has the magic touch - we loved Marea and really enjoyed Osteria Morini! Next up: Ai Fiori at the Settai.
