Hatfield's expanded prix-fixe menu
Another gem I just read on Gayot...they report, and the Hatfield's website confirms, that they are doing a special where you can pick any appetizer, entree, and dessert off the a la carte menu for $49 (small supplement for lamb and foie). They used to have this deal, but with very limited choices (and of course they were never what I wanted to order!). I think this is a good deal, since a typical appetizer+ entree+ dessert would be 18+34+ 12=$64. I love the food at Hatfield's, so I wanted to give everyone a heads up about this positive change.
Went for it last week. 1st X @ Hatfield's. This is a terrific resto, from the design & "feel" to the service, and definitely the food.
We also got (so In imagine you would too) an amuse bouche -shot of celery soup +little teeny tiny deviled quail egg and at the end a little teeny tiny pb frosted brownie. Found out why the hamachi croque madame is recommended. Duck was perfectly cooked, juicy and the best duck I've had in a while ( and I've eaten a lot of duck). Short rib + hanger steak -double pleasure and the deserts were WOW !!
Thanks for the 411. I like Hatfield's because it has a "mom & pop" feel to the place. While "corporate managed restaurants" are not always bad, there are too many of them out there. I really like it when there's one owner and one restaurant.
I actually went to Hatfield's last night for the first time and was very impressed with everything. The prices were very reasonable for the food quality and service. Three course prix-fixe seemed like a steal. Splendid restaurant that seems to get lost in the shuffle with all of the emerging places around town. The Croque, Lamb, and Peanut-Butter Truffle cake were the standouts. This place is on par with Lucques and Joes.
