Excellent Dinner @ Left Bank in W. Village
Group of four on a Friday evening. Wonderful front-of-the-house treatment from the co-owner and waiter. Excellent wine by the glass and a nice electricity about the place. Spare but elegant decor. My chopped beet salad was well portioned and absolutely delicious comfort food, and my wife's gazpacho was perfectly fresh and balanced, with complex flavors and great texture. We both ordered the split, roasted chicken. The chicken was perfectly roasted, moist, and flavorful, cut and stacked without losing that perfect juiciness, crisp skinned and tasty. The baby carrots were cooked with lemon zest, and the natural roasting juices were rich and complimented the plate perfectly.
Maple syrup pie was nice, smooth, and sweet, and the dollop of creme fraiche cut the sweetness well.
Service was perfect, prices reasonable. I'll be back.
