Ouest - First Time Visit

We're visiting New York in the near future and would like to dine at Ouest. What is the dress code? If you would, please recommend a favorite appetizer, entree, and dessert.
Thank you.

  1. No true dress code. My faves:

    App - Octobpus salad, duck breast or sturgeon

    Entree - short ribs if they're on the menu, otherwise pork tenderloin

    dessert - dense chocolate cake

    1. Smart casual dress will be fine. For apps, I think the truffled omelette souffle is outstanding, and if you like squab (I do), the squab entree served with duck liver risotto is one of my favorites (also like their pork tenderloin and yes, they do a great job with short ribs).

      Bottom line is that it's hard to go wrong at Ouest, regardless of what you order.

      1. Short ribs as main.

        For app, gravlax with chick pea pancake.

        Great place!

        1. The poached egg over smoked duck breast with frisee is a fantastic appetizer. But for main courses - they have the BEST grilled pork chop in the city. And if you are drinking, their martinis and fresh margaritas are incomparable.

          1. omlette souffle as the app
            short ribs for entree

            You can't miss.
