Puerto Rico has brought the world many treasures, like Jennifer Lopez and Benicio Del Toro and the El San Juan Hotel and that amazing stuff with the amazing name, mofongo, the local stew made of sweet plantains.
Puerto Rico has also blessed us with today's Friday Fives guest, supermodel Heidy De la Rosa. Heidy may not be as well known as some of her best friends (i.e. Chanel Iman), but she's a pretty big deal in her own right and we like her just the same. Why? Because this girl knows food. Heidy hit us up with her Friday Fives restaurant picks, and she hit some of the Infatuation all time favorites, including Bohemian, Sushi Seki, and Carbone. Read up on where Heidy hangs, and to keep up with life through the personal photo diary of an SI Swimsuit model, follow her on Instagram.
Heidy's "perfect For" Picks
"It's small, cozy and intimate. feels like you are in a beautiful living room having the most delicious Japanese food. I been few times and my mouth always leaves happy."
"Breathtaking view of Central Park and the NYC skyline while enjoying their yummy branzino."
"This restaurant takes me back to my island of Puerto Rico. It's like a cafeteria, and anytime I'm home sick and craving some mofongo or rotisserie chicken, I come here. Q rico!"
"The last time I was here was with my girlfriends and we had a great time drinking sake and eating the most amazing, mouth watering sushi I've ever had."
"You can never go wrong coming here. It's a delicious restaurant, with guaranteed fresh and flavorful everything. Oh, and I can't get enough of their kale martinis."
"It's only been around for a couple years, but it's already become my favorite Italian restaurant in all of NYC. I can't get enough of that spicy rigatoni vodka or the angel hair pasta, which goes perfectly with a nice glass red wine. Fantastico!"
"On those days where there isn't enough time to sit down and have a meal, The Juice Press is my go to for the Butter Almond Cup smoothie. It's refreshing, filling, healthy, and totally hits the spot."
