Craft-No Big Deal

BrookieStyles | Jun 24, 2009 01:51 PM

My boyfriend and I ate at Craft last night for the first time and I must say, it was pretty disappointing. I have never eaten at any of Mr. Colicchio's establishments elsewhere so I have nothing to compare my experience to but in terms of just plain good food--it missed the mark. We received fresh sourdough and pumpernickel bread shortly after being seated along with an amuse bouche of Indian spiced garbanzo beans--nice presentaion, meh flavor. We ordered ricotta tagliatte, braised short ribs and potato gnocchi to share. The tagliatte was sparse but good-not great. The shorts ribs weren't as tender as they needed to be--seemed to be a little underdone in my opinion nowhere close to the caliber of Lucques and the gnocchi was just passable. For dessert, our server suggested the beignets with sour cherry ice cream. They were once again, just ok. Sad to say, my favorite part of the meal was the gigantic onions in my Grey Goose Gibson and the pretty light bulbs. Tom, please pack your knives and go home.
