I’ve been dying to get my NYC food pics out. Bone marrow. There I said it. I had been a little leary to try it. I’ve tasted a fair amount of off the grid foods- brains and tongue included, which never made my list of must have again. But this bone marrow with salty, delicate gherkins, fresh parsley, moist (and there’s the m word) grey salt with perfectly toasted bread- my guess under a salamander, was divine indeed. My friends are tired of hearing me talk about. It’s my dinner party topic. But I just can’t help it. And no, this is not an April Fools!
Lucky with a last minute reservation for two at Prune in the East village, this was the spot where the opportunity struck.
I would highly recommend it if you are a meat eater and mostly recommend it for vegetarians- especially if you are dining with a meat eater! This marrow as an appetizer would be easily shared. It’s for that select group who actually adore chicken skin and beef fat. How many are totally grossed out now? Well stop reading if you are because the next course was an Easter prelude… and not the religious kind. (well depends on your religion I suppose).
Rabbit in a little mustard butter sauce with tarragon and shallots…
We shared a darling chocolate salted caramel walnut tart… yes we ate half before i remembered a photo.
One morning for brunch at
There was another brunch (because this is the thing to do on the weekends) at Minetta Tavern. Poached eggs with lox on latkes with hollandaise. Around for ages, Minetta is old school with tailored staff and impeccable service. The food was very good albeit a little pricey.
Damn you woman, take a photo before you start eating!
And this was my favorite find for the quotidien… daily life. A dirty chai- why didn’t I think of that! A chai latte with a shot of espresso. Bravo.
And last but not least, another favorite food moment in the park. Fresh sourdough rye, lemon marmalade and a goat tomme cheese at Union Square.
