Sunday Supper at The Harrison...

Visited The Harrison in Tribeca this past weekend and my dining companion enjoyed the Sunday Supper prix fixe they were offering: 3-courses started with a flavorful Bocconcini & Heirloom Tomato Salad; tender sliced Hanger Steak with roasted potatoes; and Fig Crumble with Lemon Ice Cream for dessert...quite good at a fair price: $45. I opted for several a la carte selections including their plump and tender double cut Pork Chop, and a lovely fresh Raspberry & Rhubarb Tart served with dollops of whipped cream...I can highly recommend it! The Grilled Octopus I ordered as an appetizer was too small for the price, imo...
Chef Freitag seems to be catching her stride here...

  1. gutreactions, thanks for the report. We need to get back to The Harrison. We always seem to head to Duane Park and have eaten almost everything on their menu.

      Just went to The Harrison for the first time last week for my birthday dinner with my hubby. We were both sorely disappointed. The beet and cheese salad appetizer was good, but nothing special, and the raviolini that the waiter recommended did not live up to the hype. My char was good, but again, nothing special, but my husbands lamb chop (which again came highly recommended by the waiter), was inedible and he was unable to cut through all the fat and veins. It was a horrible cut of meet. He sent it back and got the pork chop instead (again, nothing special and very plain). We received no compensation for the fact that he got a poor piece of meat, and I ate by myself for my birthday dinner. The atmosphere was wonderful- we sat outside and the service was very good, but unfortunately we thought the food was over priced and over hyped. But maybe our experience was an outlier.
