Anyone been to Corduroy recently? Suggestions/Thoughts?

Im going for my first time this Saturday night and was wondering if anyone has been recently. If you have any recommendations that would be great.

  1. Everything is wonderful. Get the soup.

    1. I went a couple months ago and have been dieing to get back. The food is outstanding there! I personally loved the lobster carpaccio (I called it "the essence of lobster", it's light and delicious) and the scallops (in whatever form they come in on Saturday. Best scallops I've ever had.)

      Enjoy! (And make sure to report back!)

        awesome, thanks Elyssa! ...and will do

      2. Last week they had a whole dorade as special, served on cold pressed olives. It was delicious, if you like fish and don't have problem with bones.

        1. Highlights from a meal 2 weeks ago (menus change frequently):
          rouge vif d'temps soup (pumpkin soup with bacon and foie)
          Duck leg and egg salad
          Pork cheeks osso bucco style
          apple tarte tatin

          Go early and have a drink/snack at the bar!

            awesome, thanks for the insight

            we'll definitely go early and have some drinks at the bar

              Yes I forgot about that duck leg and egg salad....very good. One of the best items we had that night.

            2. I just went last night. Food was pretty good, although I miss some of the item on their old menu from their previous location (mmmm pork belly)....

              Had the sea urchin pasta, the venion loin, and bread pudding. The venison was outstanding, the other two dishes were good, but not great.

              Others at the table had the whole dorade (very nicely done), the steak (also very good), and the lamb (again, pretty terrific).

              Dessert was really the weak point of the evening, the apple tart was very burned-tasting.... that was by design according to our server, and the other desserts were just ok. I wish they had let us sub in a cheese plate or something, but the dinner is a three course pre-fixe.
              However, all in all a very nice meal. The new atmosphere is terrific.

                How much was the 3 course pre-fixe? Do they always have this? I noticed that for the first time in a long time they weren't participating in Restaurant Week.

                  1. re: Elyssa

                    They haven't participated in RW since the new location opened, and they don't intend to, according to the GM.
