Need Rec for someone who just had surgery of the tongue!

UES Mayor Jul 31, 2013 08:26 AM

My brother just had part of his tongue removed (surgery for sleep apnea) and will be in town for just couple more days. Of course I would like to go somewhere nice and delicious but due to his recovery, food needs to be soft and easy to swallow. I know this is an unusual request but looking for dinner venue ideas. He said he was able to eat soba yesterday. Send your recs! Not food ideas, but restaurant ideas where there might be delicious food to accomodate the situation. Thanks in advance! Now I'm hungry for a tongue sandwich!

      First of all, my condolences to your brother.

      I would opt for risotto or pasta at either Babbo or Marea.
