Sezz Medi

Went to Sezz Medi for the first time tonight (122 and Amsterdam). Menu is a nice variety of appetizers, salads, pizzas (they have the oven by the bar) and some entrees.

Started with an excellent salad of arugula, blood orange, roast beets and goat cheese (had them hold the red onions). Really really good, and would have been big enough to share but my friend doesn’t like beets. Perfectly dressed (the salad, although my friend looked good, too) which is hard to find. Friend had a dish that was part hummus part artichoke dip, which she sort of blended and ate with the parmesan focaccia that came with it. Ate every bite.

For dinner I had a pizza with smoked mozzarella, pancetta, and mushrooms. This was pretty good, sort of watery, though, which took away from what seemed like a nice thin crisp crust. Also, I had expected the pancetta to be diced and well rendered, but it was more like strips and still with a good amount of fat on it (I understand people like that, but it wasn’t what I expected). Friend had a warm shrimp salad with bacon and string beans that she said was great.

For dessert I had the typical tiramisu, more out of reflex and wanting to linger. It was good, but nothing to write home about.

They seem to offer all of their wines by the glass, which I appreciate. I don’t know enough about wine to say if it was a good list, though, or if the bottle prices were reasonable.

I would definitely go again, and would recommend it if you’re in the neighborhood.
