North 44

Posted a few weeks ago looking for recos on Centro, but to our surprise we were taken to North 44 across the street.

Started with a fine sleection of oysters, and a great selection of flatbreads and breads. Oysters were plump and amazing, but wasn't fond of the gaspacho ice served with it. Would have preferred a sleection hot sauces a la Rodney's.

Had the duck three ways for the main, which inlcuded a confit leg and foie gras. Melt in your mouth. Not sure it would be worth the $45 if I was paying, but I wasn't and enjoyed every bite.

Ended with a chocolate torte, which was rich and choclatey, but perhpas a little too eggy.

we had wine with everything and cocktails prior, and I think the final cost was ~$200/head. I really enjoyed it but I am not sure it was worth the price. i was actually a bit hungry when I left!
