WORK x PLAY [No. 3]

Call it a meet up, another networking event, or an excuse to enjoy a decent drink on a weekday, Work x Play is a gathering of like minded individuals getting together for the sake of sharing knowledge, networks, ideas, and good times. So we called on our friends, colleagues, and clients, to join us for our third Work x Play at Gusto 101.



Gusto 101 may entice you with their infamous dollar/ounce house wine, but what's even more seductive is their New World-infused Southern Italian Cuisine

Speaking of persuasion, everyone must try the Cavolo Nero kale salad. It's perfectly massaged organic lacinato kale with zante currants, toasted pine nuts pecorino, parmigiano, and zesty lemon vinaigrette. Kale has never tasted better.

We snacked on antipasti (mixed mushroom Bruschetta, Tagliere Misto, and Tuscan Fries) while the more hungry gents craved a Gusto Americano Burger (we weren't surprised).

Housed in a former car garage, the open air bar and kitchen is adorned with vintage fixtures and rustic details. It's a popular spot for King West creatives to flock to after work as the atmosphere and food are the perfect mix of comfort and refinement.  

A retractable rooftop patio transforms the second floor for a unique dining experience. In the summer you can dine alfresco on the large roof patio - a luxury hard to come by in the area—in the cooler months, you can still dine with a view.

Everyday x Exceptional
