If celebrity gossip isn’t really your thing (it isn’t ours) then you might not know who Nancy O’Dell is. And that would put you in the minority. Nancy is the host of a little show called Entertainment Tonight. She also contributes to NBC’s Today Show and Dateline, is an author, a mom, and a former Miss South Carolina. No big deal. But don’t think this Southern belle is all work and no play. Judging by her picks below, Nancy knows what’s up when it comes to new restaurant openings in New York City. She’s got the current Eater Heat Map covered.
When Nancy isn’t busy tweeting to her one million followers or executive producing and hosting HGTV’s “Celebrities at Home,” this multitalented young lady hits up some of the hottest spots in the city. And don’t let that slim figure fool you. She can take down some chicken and waffles with the best of ’em.
Check out Nancy’s favorite Perfect For picks, and tune into Entertainment Tonight, weekdays at 7pm EST on CBS so that you finally have something to talk to your co-workers about.
Nancy O’Dell’s “Perfect For” Picks
Toro(85 10th Ave.) – “I have always thought of tapas as sexy – so easily shared. Barcelona style Spanish tapas and a Spanish focused cocktail menu in a glam space make this destination a sexy date night spot in hip Chelsea.”
Costata (206 Spring St.) – “You can’t go wrong with Michael White! I love this Italian steakhouse; it is in a three story space in Soho and serves everything from salads, pasta, steak sand fish to great cocktails and wine.”
Tao Downtown(92 9th Ave.) – “I think this is the new downtown hotspot! it is located in the Maritime Hotel and definitely the place to spot cool celebrities. You can take a seat on one of the plush banquettes and people watch while sipping a cocktail.”
La Cenita(409 West 14th St.) – “It’s perfectly located in the heart of the Meatpacking district in the old Abe and Arthur’s bi-level space. It is a trendy restaurant that serves Mexican inspired fare.”
Sweet Chick (164 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn) – “I am a Southern Girl, so I love this place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They have amazing chicken and waffles and other delicious comfy food items. Cozy digs and drinks with cool names.”
