84 on Seventh - anyone been?

  • r

It opened about 6 months ago, and has gotten a lot of love on yelp and menupages. The menu looks interesting, and it was recently added to Savored, so I am tempted to give it a try. No mentions so far on CH. Any info?

  1. It's really quite amazing, actually. I'm to glad to see a post about them actually because I was just talking about this restaurant last night. The chef knows what he's doing and the service is super. Def better than those other West Village restaurants that require you to wait 2 hours.

    1. We were there with a party of 9 on Saturday nite and it was wonderful. Very accomodating, decent wine list (we drank the rose Cava), and very good food for the money. Best dishes were the pureed caulifolower with truffle oil and a quail egg on top and the rabbit/pasta dish. The brick chicken was moist, the side of brussel sprouts sublime, the char done well. All in all, a terrific meal. Although we live in Carnegie Hill, the schlep will be worth it. Go and enjoy!

        Thanks, Liz and smarty. We will probably give it a try this week, and I will report back.

      2. Okay, so we went there tonight, and it was excellent. We started with onion bisque and the cauliflower flan (wow, this was great, with a generous serving of truffles, not just truffle oil). For mains we had the chicken (very good but not exceptional) and rabbit with pasta (very delicious). The banana cake was absolutely fabulous and easily enough for two to share. A nice Ribera del Duero was $36. Service was good, a bit amateurish but attentive. They really need some serious publicity. We were one of four tables occupied. Please give it a try as I would hate to see them fail. Its a real find.

          rrems - kind of OT - can you tell me about your experiences with Savored?

          1. re: smilingal

            It's great, very easy to use and we save a lot of money. More and more restaurants are joining it, so we have a huge number of choices.

            1. re: rrems

              so - you make your reservation thru them and.....?? how does it work?

              1. re: smilingal

                It's all explained on their website. You pay $10 to make the res, and you can cancel up to 2 hours before and get a refund. The restaurant deducts 30% from the total, and you are expected to tip based on the full amount. Be aware that not all time slots or party sizes are available, that varies from restaurant to restaurant and from day to day, the idea being to fill tables that would otherwise go empty.

                1. re: rrems

                  it's reassuring to know that you have tried and had good experience with it. I had been leery but will now venture forward! thanks! The restaurant deducts the 30% immediately, prior to paying, and if desired, two people may split the balance on their own credit cards??

                  1. re: smilingal

                    Yes, the discounted total will be on the bill, and you could then pay with two cards.

        2. Thanks for putting this on our radar. We are going tonight, and will report back.

            Bursts of stormy weather on last Wednesday evening did little to nearly-fill this welcome addition to WV, as however amateurish their service seemed – white undershirt and torn jeans, and extra trip to the kitchen to describe their sweetbread app – it felt more refreshing and sincere under the comfortably casual and an upstart place like this. Very savory and satisfying onion bisque had subtle but aromatic roasted garlic undertone, and lip-smackingly delicious cauliflower flan – truffle oil in it had more flavor here than the generous shavings of black truffles - were among several attractive appetizers that seem to create nice buzz within and here on CH. Though bit dry cheesecake entrée didn’t fare well with my wife, its crispy outer crust was tasty, and the up-priced ($31; listed $29 online) duck dish was perfectly medium-rare –bit too thinly carved for my liking- with texturally as well as flavorfully sprinkled dry-roasted wild rice marrying surprisingly well along with paired poached plum. Smashed they certainly were the fingerling potatoes cooked in duck fat which had nice crunchy and saltiness. At $12, cheaper of the two by-the-glass Bordeaux on their list worked well with the duck (can’t remember the name) while the other Bordeaux from Chateau La Clotte ($13/pg) was lesser quality than expected for the price even for their generous pours.

            This place and the menu reminded me of one of many chef/owner driven eateries we recently enjoyed in Montreal; food is rustically upscale and delicious, atmosphere relaxed, service friendly, and price reasonable especially with deal from savored.com: we would love to return.
