on a recent "eating trip" to NYC our first 3 meals at 3 hot spots left us unimpressed and underwhelmed. A relative who lives near this little spot took on E 58th took us here and we were stunned - it was fantastic!
From the minute we walked in the door, the staff was welcoming and most gracious. We we seated at a cozy windowside table and offered a well chosen wine list. When we expressed interest in one of the appetizers on prix fix menu, the waiter gladly offered it to us a la carte -- no forcing the set menu on us which we really appreciated.
Our dinner began with a deliciious frito misto - lovely fresh seafood in a crispy feather light batter.
My Ossobucco with risotto was devine - flavourful and fork tender and enourmous! My husbands Hangar steak with polenta was also perfect and accompanied by a wonderful & again very generous portion of wild mushrooms . The third entree at our table was the wild salmon - just rare in the middle as requested and accompanied by perfectly cooked vegetables. Two fabulous desserts completed our meal - one being the tiramisu which was more than memorable! All in all a delicious dinner at a very fair price -- would highly reccommend to anyone who would prefer having a good meal than being seen at the latest "in" spot!
