Final Revisions to Weekend Food Itinerary
I previously posted a request for suggestions for my annual food pilgrimage to Manhattan. I am putting the finishing touches on the itinerary, and would welcome any suggestions, including what to order at each destination.
We arrive late Friday night (11:00 pm?), and leave Sunday morning/early afternoon.
Late dinner: Blaue Gans
After-dinner drinks: Pegu Club
Afternoon: East Village/LES Crawl
(work our way towards dba for afternoon beers)
Momofuku Ssam Bar
Later afternoon: beers at dba and Essex Ale House (with perhaps a pie from Tuck Shop and/or pudding from Rice to Riches)
Pre-dinner wine: In Vino
Dinner: Degustation Tasting and Wine Bar
Brunch: Tia Pol
Here is the previous post:
Degustation: the pork with pickled jalapenos, scallions in a sherry reduction and the potato tortillas with quail egg. Two of the tastier dishes I have had anywhere recently. Skip desserts here, they are the weakest part of their menu.
Blaue Gans: my favorite of the schnitzels is the wiener schnitzel, but you can't really go wrong. Pork belly was very good too, and I've had good luck w/the specials. Whatever you do, save room for the salzburger nockerl for dessert--it's fantastic.
