dates/figs wrapped in bacon in NYC

namreb Jul 17, 2008 10:15 AM


anything wrapped in bacon is fine by me

the dates wrapped in bacon at XUNTA are awesome and
the dates stuffed with almonds wrapped in bacon at the Common Ground are killer

any other places have it on the menu- that you can suggest in nyc?

    Pipa has something including ALL THOSE ingredients but with a twist!

    Stuffed Endive Leaves stuffed with a mixture of dates and bacon, covered in a cabrales cheese, sauce, sprinkled with toasted almonds and baked!

      Alta serves dates w/ almonds wrapped in bacon along with bacon-wrapped olives.

        I really like the ones at Alta. It helps that not as many people like the bacon-wrapped olives, so I reap the windfall when I share an order LOL!

          lol... I will fight to the death for the odd date. I feel like I'm just eating those olives because they're wrapped in bacon :)

                the salt bar has the best dates in bacon.
                we go there for a glass of wine and the dates in bacon specifically.
                i have tried to master the recipe - it sets off my smoke alarm every time.

                  A special at Coco Pazzo:

                  "I immediately glommed on to the special appetizer - figs, stuffed with gorgonzola, wrapped in prosciutto, battered and fried (deep fried!). Wow - this was fantastic - wonderful combination of flavors and textures, and perfectly fried."

                  You could see if they are offering it and have them with a glass of wine at the bar.
