The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Just what the world needed: A Barbie-themed restaurant.
Not anywhere within driving distance, but, rather, in far-off Taipei. If youre among the Barbie-obsessed, however, you might want to book a trip forthwith. If not, you probably want to stop reading, for risk of sugar shock.
Anyway, the place licensed by Barbies maker, Mattel is completely done in magenta and pink, with bar tables modeled after stiletto heels and chair backs after bustiers some adorned with tutus. Images of Barbie dolls are everywhere. Even waitresses are supposed to look like Barbie, waiters like Ken.
The menu is geared to Barbie-like figures, so calorie counts are given for such dishes as a salmon beauty salad and hazelnut tiramisu..
The crowning touch is a giant Barbie box. Step into it and feel like youre Barbie herself.
Which Barbie would you like to be? On second thought, keep that one to yourself.
