Left Bank - West Village

rrems | Jun 6, 201810:52 AM     8

I could only find two mentions of Left Bank on CH, and am surprised it is so under the radar. We tried it last night after I received an offer from Blackboard Eats.

The owners both previously worked at Red Cat so there is a noticeable similarity.  

I do wish they had a more extensive beer list (the Founders Dirty Bastard ale that was listed on the web is no longer offered), but we made do with Stella Artois.  I started with soft shell crab with fiddleheads and Stanley had octopus with sausage on a bed of chopped salad.  Both were vibrantly flavored and complex.  My main course of roasted brook trout was perfectly done, topped with salsa verde and served with endive and multicolored carrots in an aioli-like sauce.  The chicken was a perfect example of French-style roast chicken, served with shaved asparagus.  For dessert we shared ricotta cheesecake with stewed berries;  a generous portion and nothing really wrong with it, but not something I'd go out of my way for.

A fuller report is on my blog:
