I've been to Ma Peche 4 times (both lunch and dinner) in the past 2 months. I've loved the fried cauliflower and fish sauce, the squid salad, the pork ribs, scallops, steak frites with the yummy rice fries. corn with lardo. Service has made great improvements; now it's perfect! More crowded at lunch. Early dinner is almost serene. Love having Milk Bar on the way out to pick up dessert. Crack pie slice was twice the usual size.
I haven't been to Momofuku Ko for dinner since November. Has anyone been there recently? Do you recall your menu? Thanks for your help.
I had dinner at the "new" Aureole last night. I call it "new" since they have a new chef--Chris Lee (formerly from Gilt). Food is exceptionally creative and delicious! I started dinner with a poached egg, grits, porcini mushrooms and prociutto di Parma--excellent (and I never wanted to try grits before). Main course was a venison tenderloin with pomegranate, dark chocolate sauce, macadamia nuts and sweet potato puree--yummy! Dessert was the lemon chiffon with citrus fruit and frozen sheep's milk yogurt--perfect way to end a spectacular dinner. Service remains flawless.
There's a reason the Salzburger Nockerl has lasting power on the ever-rotating menu at Wallsé, Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner's Austrian restaurant in the West Village; people are ordering it for dinner. I joined these ranks with enthusiasm several months back. When I considered shamelessly indulging my sweet tooth in lieu of an actual meal one evening, I was encouraged when the bartender divulged that I was not alone.
Momofuku Ko turned five this year, and to celebrate David Chang and his crew brought back some of the classic dishes from years gone by for a limited two night engagement. The ten course menu featured classic dishes from the restaurant's history.
