Praise for Graffiti

bdurrett | Aug 27, 200810:15 AM     7

Had a delicious meal last night at Graffiti in the EV. Tiny little jewel box. Menu consists of small plates designed to share. The owner (Jehangir Mehta) who will serve you is extremely accommodating (not to mention very kind) e.g. we were 4 and the watermelon salad serves 3 pieces, he immediately offered to add an extra piece.

Signature of the menu is mixing flavors and textures. Mehta has obviously taken great care in preparing the menu and takes the same care explaining it and serving his guests. Seriously, he's the nicest guy I've encountered in this city in a while.

We covered a lot of the menu, and were not disappointed by any item. We had the watermelon feta salad (mint sorbet made the dish), pork dumplings, pickled ginger scallops, chili shrimp, braised pork bun and the burger. It is hard to pick a stand out bc it was all that good - scallops, shrimp, pork bun and burger were all fantastic. The burger meat is done kabob style and has great spciy flavor. Every dish seems to have one or two extra unexpected ingredients which make the dish unique.

I am as jaded as the next NY diner, and feel I am rarely overwhelmed by the creativity of a menu or the care/service, and Graffiti did just that in both categories. Definitely recommend.
