Posts Tagged ‘new york city restaurant week’

Hello, ladies and gents. I have lots of good blog posts coming up actually, a lot of cameos – old and new, and I am very excited!

Last night I went to dinner with my friends Nicolle and Lucy at the Colicchio & Sons Tap Room. Colicchio & Sons has been on my short list since it opened a year ago and when Nicolle suggested we go there for Restaurant Week, I was game. Even with my love/hate relationship with Restaurant Week – if I was going to do it, I was going to do it somewhere good.

The best part about going to a Restaurant Week dinner at Colicchio & Sons Tap Room is that it didn’t feel like it was Restaurant Week at all. When I first got the menu, I was actually confused because there were so many choices. It was awesome.

This is what we had:

This is the roast quail with farro, sunchoke, and saba. You know we’re carnivores when someone brings out a plate with two little bodies and we’re all like, “Aw, cute!” haha. Seriously, though. We were like that.

This is the steak and ale with brussels sprouts and herbed potatoes. And it made me the winner. I don’t know the last time I had steak and it was good, good, good. I would eat this every day.

And then it was dessert time! Another thing I liked about Colicchio & Sons – they brought you a dessert menu like you are a civilized being instead of most restaurants that make you order your dessert with the rest of your meal like a complete barbarian during Restaurant Week. Just another touch of class from Colicchio and Company.

Apple tartin with hazelnut brittle and calvados ice cream, whatever that is.

And what did miss Amanda get?

The vanilla ice cream parfait of course! With hot fudge, red velvet and “oreo” cookie crunch. I mean it was basically made for me. So yeah, like I said – I would eat this meal again and again. And I would dine at Colicchio & Sons again. If anyone is ever feeling extremely generous, feel free to take me in for the tasting menu. The service was excellent and we even saw Mr. Tom Colicchio standing by the bar himself!
