Anthony David – Hoboken, NJ
It was my last night of the New York and Hoboken trip, and for the first time, I duplicated a restaurant. Cynthia and I thought it would be a nice way to wrap things up. I’d be off early the next morning.
We were started off with some bread and white bean dip while we pondered the menu. All I knew was that foie gras was listed and I had to have it. Everything else was supplementary.
Our starters were a potato tart with prosciutto (seen on left) and the pure foie gras with toasts and cherries, on right. Delicious. We liked both, and perhaps liked the foie gras best. Because, come on, foie gras.
Cynthia’s main was lightly seared ahi, potatoes and greens, on left. I opted for crispy duck, pumpkin polenta and cherries, as seen on the right.
The searing was so, er, seared, that the fish was a little cold inside. She took about half of it home as leftovers where I am certain it was cooked more thoroughly. My dish was the right portion, really delicious, and I ate it all.
No dessert! We were full. And I had some packing to do. Goodbye, New York!
