new restaurant in bay ridge?
I noticed a new addition to the ridge yesterday on bay ridge avenue off 3rd avenue called petit oven, has anyone been to it?
BF and I went to Petit Oven tonight and highly recommend it. It is indeed a warm, comfortable neighborhood place with great food. We tried the tasting menu. The pork chop was the best---perfectly cooked. The portion of mussels was huge and delicious. At $35 each, it was a real deal. Everyone should check it out.
We ate there Sunday night. Excellent food, atmosphere, and staff! Everything we ordered was really good -- I had mussels appetizer and the steak and gorgonzola mac and cheese. Others in my party ordered an eggplant and goat cheese appetizer, a special with smoked salmon, the pork chops and a gnocchi and wild mushroom dish -- this last one was particularly amazing. Everything was made to order, so my sister easily got her mussels without sausage.
One small word of warning: there were 5 of us, and 6 other people in the restaurant who had arrived before us. The entire meal took 2 1/2 hours, with quite a wait for the appetizers in particular. We were happy to spend the time in such a cozy and friendly place, but if you are in a rush this is probably not the place for you.
Still BYOB, although I don't know how long that will last.
We'll go back!
Tried it for the first time last night after reading all the raves here. Food was very good, mussels were nice & juicy, not overdone. Pork chop done well as was the duck. Very friendly staff and attentive (but not overly so). Still byob for another month, then it will be wine & beer. New menu starting today. I'm looking forward to trying their fish after speaking with the chef of our shared dislike of overcooked seafood in so many restaurants.
