What can i say? Some of us "pretend" to be sophisticated and worldly. There are many times that I fall prey to that sin of pride. However, last night my primal urges almost took over and I came very close to licking my plate clean ( on three occasions)!! My first visit to the lovely Bistro on the Upper West Side of manhattan was a revelation.
Forget the wonderful and helpful staff and the lovely and relaxed atmosphere..... THE FOOD!!!!
Chef Mike has a wonderful talent for melding flavors and extracting the essence of the ingredients. I had the Gnochhi with Duck and the Lamb Shank with Beans and the Coconut Caramel for dessert and they all exploded in my mouth.
Oh... and all Kosher!!!!
Go and Enjoy!!
