Top 10 dishes in Manhattan?
What have you've eaten recently (or not so recently) that stood out to you, for any reason? For example, a friend will not stop talking about the Redhead's bacon brittle; I was taken by surprise (in the best way) by Locanda Verde's sheep's milk ricotta. I've been gone for a while- please get me back in the loop! Thanks in advance.
This post was inspired by another post for top 10 restaurants...thanks steakrules85! http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/627486)
I can't say top ten ... but I've really liked the BBQ rib sandwich at Momofuku Ssam. And the porchetta sandwich at Salumeria Rosi was porky deliciousness at its best.
do you mean the "Anniversary Lunch?" unfortunately the menu is completely different so none of the dishes i mentioned are available for it, but both the roasted black plum salad and the asparagus salad sound wonderful! if you do go, & you try the trio of sorbets for dessert, see if they have the kaffir lime sorbet. we had some with the meyer lemon pudding and it was excellent.
Big Booty Bread Co's peanut butter cookie
Matsugen's shrimp tempura
Pork bun, C&L Dumpling House
Pan-fried pork & chive dumplings, Prosperity Dumpling
Insalata di Pesce, Novita
Butter-pecan ice cream cone, Ronnybrook Milk Bar
Chili (homemade) cheese fries with an extra side of 'Whiz, Carl's Steaks
Hi Simon, glad to hear you went last week. Did you order the prix-fixe menu?
Perhaps it's because we went on the earlier side of dinner service (think 6pm) that the tempura shrimp arrived crisp and piping hot from the fryer. I was pleased by the size of the shellfish, as well. I feel like other places tend to skimp on quality.
WD-50 = Eggs Benedict, Momofuko Ko = Fluke in buttermilk (too bad you cant order that at one of Changs other places), El Faro = seafood paella...for dessert go with WD-50 = hazelnut tart
Standouts I've had recently:
--oyster pan roast, the John Dory
--agree with the eggs Benedict, WD-50
--Momofuku Milk Bar's candy bar pie
--Minetta Black Label Burger
--kale Caesar salad, Back Forty
Wasn't wildly impressed with the bacon brittle at the Redhead, although I like the place a lot.
