For a nice white wine (and a great value), opt for Domaine Mardon's Quincy; this Loire Valley appellation produces rounder, mineral-driven versions of sauvignon blanc; 2009's good vintage. Enjoy!
One of Sifton's favorites of 2010 this small spot had a huge year. Jesse Schenker's is menu is always changing but some staples are the Salt Cod Fritters and the Berkshire Pork Belly.
Try the Roasted Scallops and spot it on Foodspotting!
The smores dessert is a must-try. Kudos to pastry chef Christine Lee!
Get there (i.e. book) after 9:30pm when the restaurant gets less crowded, otherwise it can be noisy. Great service!
New favorite. Try everything.
This one's easy. Get the cauliflower raviolo. You'll get a taste of pasta, mushrooms, veggies, and seafood in one bite!
I would go back purely for the deconstructed smores dessert...a MUST!
Quintessential West Village spot. The spicy sweetbreads satisfy, as does the scallops and lobster risotto. The special Caipirinha made with apple/beet juice and fresh ginger, fantastic.
Try the PB&J pain perdu!
PB&J pain perdu. The chef's pillowy treat features a three-inch-thick wedge of Sullivan Street brioche stuffed with a swirl of creamy peanut butter and grape jam. $12.
Mondays with Jesse series is the best!
Scallops are mind blowing. S'mores are a no- brainer. My favorite place to eat in NYC.
s'mores are legendary! Salt Cod fritters are also a must
For brunch menu, scallop salad and the sweet pea soup with foie gras is amazing. For wine, there's a $60 Chardonnay that's great
tasting menu is the way to do it here!
Try the Berkshire Pork Belly and spot it on Foodspotting!
Get the fuck out of here before they fat you
Amazing food wonderful ambiance. Try the halibut, branzino and cheeses. Ask for jess to be your waitress. She's great. NYT write up last week. Stroll through the village to walk off the calories
Do not miss the Razor Clams and the Fluke. Also - make sure Young helps you with your wine choices. Spot on!
S'mores on the dessert menu = best $8 you will ever spend. The spaghetti special w truffles was super too. But get the S'mores. Make love to them.
Love the vibe here and if you get Cal as your server you're in luck!
Mondays with Jesse are absolutely amazing and should not be missed.
Try the duck it is delicious !
Food is awesome, service is atrocious.
Get the tasting menu! They accommodate most restrictions!
The chef's tasting menus are the best! Do not miss the foie gras!!
Try the Pumpkin Espuma - #light and #pumpkiny with perfect scallops (via @Foodspotting)
A Parisian inspired Thanksgiving meal is on the menu including pumpkin espuma with bay scallops, pear, roasted sablefish with chicken dumplings & turkey roulade with chestnut and cranberries.
Grub Street off-menu dish: Foie-and-Langoustine Wellington. "Instead of beef Wellington, the staff swaps in langoustine & fatty goose liver into a tiny puff pastry shell w a Japanese red curry sauce."
Try the PB&J French Toast - So good I had to post one more shot (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Pb&J "Pain Perdue" - This just easily made my list of best things I've ever eaten. (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Cheesy Grits (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Salt Cod Fritters - Lamb Sausage Ragu, Curry Aioli (via @Foodspotting)
The duck breast here is tender, plump and flavorful!
Bit of an expensive foodie destination with not much to back it up. Won't be back but buffalo sweetbreads were quite deelish. Nothing much else to mention -_-
Get the tasting menu, truly shows you the depth of the menu.
The PB&J French toast must be tried but great for sharing at the table, otherwise it will put you in a coma. Everyone talks about the smores dessert but we didn't make it that far.
Good for a splurge. Get bone marrow toast, duck breast with spring bean cassoulet, and Christina Lee's take on the s'more—graham cracker ice cream, toasted marshmallow, peppery "hot" chocolate ganache
Get pre fixe menu and make sure you get different dishes. That way you can share and experience every bite. Get all extras on the menu. Caviar is good quality, but too expensive for small amount.
Trust the chef.
make sure they're open before you huff it across town.
