Hearth appetizer recommendations?
Going to Hearth tonight, planning main course of breast of veal (hot out, but I love breast of veal).
Menupages has these apps -Summer Salad, sucrine lettuce salad, Artichoke Salad, Fig Salad, New Zealand Snapper Crudo, Fava And Pecorino, Foie Gras Torchon with apricots, frisée, almonds and brioche toast, Grilled Quail .
Recommendations? Or should I save room for dessert instead - can't really do both -Buttermilk Panna Cotta with peaches and thyme; Lemon Verbena Pudding with strawberries; Warm Carrot Cake with mascarpone ice cream and candied pecans; Chocolate Cherry Tart with amaretto ice cream;Baked Chocolate Mousse with candied hazelnut and coffee ice cream; Summer Sundae with sweet corn ice cream, berry compote and whipped cream; Ice Cream Sampler malted milk chocolate, vanilla and coffee ; Sorbet Sampler
Fava and pecorino is a signature dish, as are the gnocchi. I have to say, however, that I was really impressed with the cobbler for dessert (listed on the tasting menu, but we ordered it ala carte with no problem). Incidentally, the current bartender at Hearth is quite talented. Her absinthe cocktail is a must try...
For apps, I've enjoyed both the fava & pecorino salad and the grilled quail. I always love the desserts at Hearth, with the exception of a panna cotta I had there over a year ago (not the same variation you listed above). Tough choice, but I think I'd go with dessert.
