new restaurant, sfolgia, on east 92nd street and lex
this restaurant has received rave reviews in the Times, New York Magazine and others, but we went last night and it sucks!
tiny & gorgeous and filled with charm of a true Tuscan variety. Italianate menu.
horrid wine list.
NO chianti classico
rot gut red wine served in HOT glasses
bread right out of the oven that was not entirely baked, to prove it the crust it was Wonder bread WHITE.
chicken plopped on the plate without a piece of parsley..no veg, no potato. nothing.
chicken was tasty, but chicken does not a meal make alone.
papardelle so over cooked with the bolognese sauce was basically mush, kind of like dog food
Wow, that's disappointing. I had this place on my list of must's.. Could it have just been that Monday night they don't have the A-crew on and are just blasting out the food leftover from the weekend???
Did you try any desserts??
Wow - I'm really surprised - I've had a couple of great meals there (before they got their liquor license) but haven't been back for a while. When we went, the bread was out of this world - just incredible. Sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience.
I am sorry for your bad experience. I had a wonderful dinner at Sfoglia a couple of months ago. The bread was delicious and I had the parpadelle bolognese; it was great. I was with a couple of friends and all 4 of us had a very good meal. The only problem was with the host who was quite unfriendly.
I'll second Toot's view of the host. Snootiest I've seen in a while, and the UES ain't Soho! I had such and unfriendly welcome a month or so ago that I politely backed out and went elsewhere.
