Last night I checked out the new joint from Mercer Street Hospitality Group (Lure Fishbar, Bowery Meat Company, etc.), Hancock Street. Everything was awesome, so let me get right into it.
The sea urchin on crispy potato was a great bite to start the meal.
We followed this with an absolutely delicious steak tartare.
The squid ink linguine with calamari, crispy garlic, and sea beans was really unique and beautiful.
But the duck bolognese mafaldine was the better of the two.
I was even impressed with the veggies. Both the cauliflower and the carrots are worth your time. If I had to choose just one, I’d go with the cauliflower.
The short rib felt more like a grill or broil, or a very fast braise. I expected a more tender, pull-apart preparation. It was still tasty as hell though. 7/10.
The veal schnitzel was the best dish of the night. Amazing flavor profile with the capers and onions underneath, and a beautiful light and airy crisp on the breading. 10/10.
They overcooked the first steak that came out, but they made it right with a second one. It was really delicious, well seasoned, and came as a composed dish with a side of mushrooms. 8/10.
The rhubarb crumble was a great finish to this great meal!
I would definitely go here again, and I recommend you go as well!
