My husband and I loved our dinner at MRKT last week and I've been doing my best to spread the word ever since!
Appetizer: Blue point oysters with salmon roe and sherry mignonette. Our server said they would give us half a dozen, but there were seven plump beautiful oysters. I forget what was else was in the mignonette, but it was great.
Seared scallops with a tomato vinaigrette served over potato and broccoli rabe mash. Delicious.. the mash had the perfect horseradish kick and the acid from the vinaigrette was lovely with the sweet scallops.
My husband's entree:
Strip steak with dino kale, roasted carrots and herbed butter. This was very simply prepared. Not too saucy, just simple to let the meat the vegetables shine.
Dessert was the chef's brilliant take on a creme brulee- it was more of a creme brulee flavored foam topped with crisped crepe shavings with a lemon gelee on the bottom. Such a light, refreshing and creative dessert.
Our server was wonderful and let my husband taste 3 wines since he was being indecisive. And his Mid Century Manhattan was made just right.
It was that rare meal where *every* component was done so well.... More people need to know about this place.
