Dish Recommendations at Marea and Empellon Cocina
I'll be in New York for a short stint in mid-August and will be eating at Marea (for lunch) and Empellon Cocina (for dinner). Aside from the lobster-burrata salad and fusilli, are there any other dishes at Marea worth trying? Similar question regarding Empellon Cocina: aside from the lobster with Tetilla, what are the other must-trys?
Thanks in advance for your help!
If you're getting the astice and the fusilli, I'd recommend the roasted scallops at Marea as a supplement. The ricci (uni and lardo app) isn't on the lunch menu but they will make it upon request if they have the ingredients available.
At Cocina I tried:
Mezcal cured ocean trout
Sal de gusanos
Frozen mango mousse
All were good but not great, IMO. The flavors were a bit discordant, more "interesting" as opposed to "yummy" though maybe I'm just not open minded enough for Stupak's experiments. I did notice that some of these dishes have been tweaked or are no longer on the menu so perhaps I should try Cocina again. I love Empellon Taqueria though.
