Resin Reviews: Mary Queen of Scots

Resin designer Chantel Valentene recently hit one of Chic's favorite new LES haunts, Mary Queen of Scots.


"You know the look when people cock their head to one side, with their eyes a little blank, and you can see wheels spinning: Five girls, one table, same look.  We were wrapping our heads around the menu, wine had begun to flow, Jameson had been poured, stomachs were growling and anything fried sounded good. We ordered fried brussels sprouts and devils on horseback. 


I should have known by the name I would be led to commit sin. Beelzebub came charging through to the table with his knights wrapped in bacon. Now, I don’t eat bacon—but I did. Twice. And I liked it. Next came the sprouts.  These usually mundane vegetable tasted like salt and vinegar potato chips. So good. 


Mid-entrée and drinking our second or third round, it was pointed out that the namesake of the restaurant is thee Bloody Mary. The same queen that made you afraid of mirrors in the dark.  With hindsight, soberness, and the help of Google, I’ve discovered the restaurant is named after her much more pleasant cousin Mary Queen of Scots. But it’s a good way to scare the sh*t out of each other while eating really good food. 


We thought the chicken was just right, crispy of the outside and moist on the inside. Mussels were finished in record time.  We annihilated two servings of the apple fritter for dessert, and our resident vegan went home happy. Don’t just go because Mary Queen of Scots makes The Best Damn Brussels Sprouts in New York, or maybe even the world.  Go because they pour heavy, and the drinks taste real good.  You can thank me later."


THE DETAILS: Mary Queen of Scots, 115 Allen Street (Delancey Street), Lower East Side; (212) 460-0915

Inside Kate Moss' Crash Pad

Kate Moss has some high-profile digs up for sale. The catch: No one wants to buy it. Pourquoi? Since the super purchased the London pad in 2007 (for $12 million), the apartment has been riddled with trouble. First a burglary, then a flood. Plus! Rumor has it the chic hangout was once haunted. (No worries. It's been exorcised.) The bride-to-be is trying desperately to sell the Victorian property before her summer nuptials to Jamie Hince. However, the out-of-the-way zip isn't appealing to potential homeowners even with five bedrooms and a neon party room. Her current asking price is 10 mill. Any takers? 

Check out the Gallery to peep inside the 5,000 square foot haven.

Long-time BFF Liv Tyler took some downtime from her powwow with Patrick Demarchelier to pose for paps front row at Stella McCartney Fall 2011. The actress looked extra sportif in a noir et créme letterman jacket draped just so over a high-waisted leather pencil skirt and blouse. Tyler stole the show hands-down...that is until Sir Paul McCartney arrived with his petite amie, Nancy Shevell, in tow. Who can compete with a Beatle?
