Too begin we were given this Amuse Bouche of some sort of Red Beet Caviar, this is the Beauty of Molecular Gastronomy
Followed by a Tomato Tartar and Yellowtail Crudo.....Beautifully presented and equally as tasty.
Next we enjoyed this Beautiful "Jewels on Toast" dish consisting of Nectarine and Whipped Ricotta with other gorgeous accompaniments.
These tasty little Beauties followed.....Lobster Tacos!
Staying in line with the Mexican theme, we couldn't leave without trying the Beautifully Braised Short Rib Tamales!!!!!
Our last course was the Spaghettini, Seared Nori Spiced Tuna, and Skillet Roasted Corn.....a "Thing of Beauty"!
And if that wasn't enough food.....Dessert was an absolute necessity. Black Bottomed Butterscotch Pot De Creme and Molten Chocolate Bread Pudding.....Need I say more.
This restaurant blew me away...I'm so full I can barely type....but this calorie fest was definitely worth every bite. I highly recommend a stop here if you're visiting NYC. But you need to call ahead for reservations...it's an NYC "HOT SPOT", and a fabulous evening out. You won't be disappointed!
