Trading Post (South Street Seaport) anyone been?
SO and I have both been for dinner now, though not together :)
The TP is also open for lunch.
Atmosphere is darker and clubby. Has a steakhouse feel. More formal than my other neighborhood favorites, Acqua (Italian) and Les Halles. I have only dined in the bar area.
SO had a burger, salad and sat in the bar area (large with tables around the perimeter). He liked it. I'll try to get more details and report back.
I went and had the flat bread pizza. It's been awhile since I went. I think I had the spicy shrimp flat bread with tomatillo, avocado and cilantro. I like it spicy and this was subtle. Think spicy for the masses.
I had a a brussel sprouts side. Very good. Large. I took most home. Probably would not order again since I make them at home all the time.
I was getting full but wanted to taste something else. I ordered the duck papparadelle, forest mushrooms, hen's egg. Liked the flavor. Good, not great. Probably would not order again.
The flat breads were really good.
Now we have another option besides Acqua and Les Halles when we don't want to head to Chinatown/EV/Brooklyn or over to TriBeCa.
