A friend and I tried Annisa restaurant in the West Village (13 Barrow st.) on Friday and had a delicious meal. The clean decor was also pleasant as was the service. The hostess, who is a part owner, was both friendly and professional. It did get loud at times as there was a table of 9 women in the center of the room, and as frequently happens with large parties was a little too noisy.
The amuse was cod puree. I had a seared fois gras appetizer with soup dumplings which was quite delicious - an asian influenced dish as many on the menu are. My friend had a mixed greens salad with a dressing she enjoyed. For mains I had a miso crusted sable fish in a broth that appeared to have some roe in it. The fish was good, I had never had sable before. My friend ordered scallops, which she enjoyed, but I didn't try them myself. We split an apple tart with vanilla ice cream for dessert - it was gone in about a minute. mmm. Then at the end of the meal, they brought two mini popsicles on toothpicks, two small pieces of candied ginger and two small chocolate truffles. It was a nice end to an enjoyable meal. Entrees were in the mid to high $20s.
