asparagus - looking for creative dishes

I had the slowly Poached Egg jamón serrano, chorizo, smoked cheese and rice cracker crusted asparagus last Friday night at Degustation and have been craving asparagus ever since. Who else does some amazing, creative asparagus dishes in NYC?

  1. I don't know how creative it is, but I just had a yummy asparagus and brie panini at Whym on 9th Ave and 58.

    1. Not neccesarily creative but easy to make at home, wrap asparagus in prosciutto, drizzle a little olive oil and bake 10-15 minutes at around 425. Real Good. Or try it steammed and drizzle truffle oil over it. Simple but awesome.

        you could wrap a brick in prosciutto and it'd be delicious. I'll have to try this tho--thanks!

      2. Crispo has a number of asparagus dishes, both appetizers and sides. There are several different dishes that incorporate prosciutto and different italian cheeses with asparagus. The roasted asparagus dishes are particularly good.

        1. Jean Georges' Nougatine room has an asparagus dish as a part of one of the prix fixe menu choices (for appetizer). I can't recall the preparation though.

          1. Momofuku has an asparagus dish with miso butter and poached eggs. It is quite similiar to the one you mentioned, but this is still so good!

              I am no fan of momofuku but I might have to give it another shot for that--they do pork so well, after all.
