My wife and I came here with her sister and brother in law for a nice duck meal.
We started with the chips and dip, which are pork rinds served with a chicken liver mousse:
These were fantastic, but my favorite item of the night was this wagyu and uni tartare dish.
Just absolutely perfect. This wasn’t on the menu, and it was compliments of the house!
Next up was this really tasty blood sausage dish, which was probably one of the best blood sausage plates I’ve ever had. It was not encased, not too salty, and mixed with some delicious toasted seeds and oats.
The charred broccolini wasn’t too charred, and mostly stalks and stems as opposed to the florette heads, but I really liked the addition of grapes to this.
The snap pea salad with clams, black bean and rice cake was nice as well. We didn’t even order it!katskatsu
One of the other stars of the night was this iberico “katsu sando” pork sandwich. These things are getting popular in NYC, typically with expensive wagyu beef, but this pork version was excellent and we didn’t blow the bank account to try it.
Next up was lamb belly pasta, which was really nice and reminded me of the killer pasta dish my wife made with minced lamb belly.
And for the final star dish of the night, the Crown of Duck.
This is a full breast of duck cooked up to a perfectly crusted Chinese five spice -laden crisp.
Awesome. We didn’t order dessert, but two items came out to us anyway! Seriously great service here. First was chocolate mousse.
Next was yuzu ice cream with sea salt and olive oil. I loved this!
I will definitely be back here to try more dishes, and to try the menu as it changes with each season.
The cote de boeuf was 8/10. Nice aged flavor.
The price tag was just too high (about $186). I took a point for that.
