Best NYC Veal Chop

I am going to be in NYC for one night in a couple of weeks and I am looking for the best veal chop in the City - preferably in the SoHo, TriBeca, Village area.

Any recs?

  1. The best veal chop I have had in the city, hands down, was at Gabriel's on w 60th Street right across the street from Time Warner Center. Huge, juicy and perfectly done.

    1. Il Mulino. Mortgage the house first.

      1. I haven't been there is a while, but I remember that Barolo had a great veal chop along with one of the nicest gardens in Manhattan. They are in Soho on West Broadway just north of Broome Street.

          The veal chop for two at Del Posto is amazing. It's super thick and covered in black truffles, cooked to pink perfection. I thought it was tastier than the veal I had at Per Se, though it had some assistance from the heavy hand of the Batali kitchen.

        2. I wonder whether Joel Robuchon's place offers a veal chop? If so, I'd recommend theirs. The best veal chop in my life (in a restaurant) was easily at his original Paris restaurant. Patricia Wells wrote the recipe in the book she did while cooking in the kitchen with him, "Simply French," and I have never cooked a veal chop any other way since getting that recipe 15 years ago.

            How was the veal chop prepared that made it so special? L'Atelier has it on their menu for $120 for 2. I won't get to try that any time soon.

          2. Piccolo Venezia in Astoria. or Felidia.
