WildFlower report (bleecker st. in the Village)

We went there for dinner last night. It was really excellent and quite the find. The menu is very strong on wild game and exotic dishes you will not see elsewhere. I started with a smoked elk carpaccio which was really nice--good smokey flavor to the elk. For the entree I had himalayan yak fillet, which was cooked medium rare and sliced into small peices with a au gratin potato side. My gf had lobster mac & cheese to start and crab cake for main--also excellent. Long and inexpensive wine list (we each had a good glass of Merlot for $6). Very friendly waitstaff and owner, who was eager to tell us about the place. They other dishes that looked yummy were the buffalo meatloaf and ostrich fillet for the main and alligator etouffee and gumbo for starters. The bread was also excellent, similar to Lupa's actually. The only negatives were that the tap water should have had ice (or been colder) and that the greens served with the elk could do with a different dressing. But, overall, it was a real discovery and I look forward to going again soon, and checking out the additional wild game specials that they have. The entire meal, including 20% tip, was around $85 or so, which is VERY reasonable in my opinion (the yak dish was $27).
