Bacalau at Kurio on 92nd St. on Between 1/2nd Ave.

Dave Feldman | Sep 24, 200605:52 AM     9

Kurio is one of my favorite places to eat or drink on the East Side, not the least because of the quiet, relaxed vibe, the interesting folks in the neighborhood the excellent drinks, and the wonderful family that runs it.

Tonight, Kurio offered a special of bacalau, Portuguese-style, and it was superb, with huge hunks of sweet potato (the tomato cut its sweetness and richness). The cod was appropriately funky. My friend asked if the steak au poivre, an appetizer, could be served in a larger portion as an entree. No problem. She loved it, but I wasn't jealous. Nothing could pry me away from the bacalau.
