First time in Hyde Park, NY...first time at 2 Taste Food and Wine Bar...and we'll be back for both!!
We made reservations at 2 Taste upon the recommendation of the owner at Journey Inn B&B (a must stay property in the area!). We were amazed with everything at the restaurant: the service, the decor, and the food (which delighted all of our olefactory senses)
The menu is the accomplishment of the head chef, Justin, and his sous chef, Jeremy, both allumni of the Culinary Insititue of America (CIA). That accomplishment is enough to warrant a visit to 2 Taste. Whatever you order, you will be amazed at how slowly you consume the creation in order to make the sensation last. Also, you must complete the meal with one of Justin's desserts (try the 3-layer chocolate hazelnut mousse)
In addition to the food, the selection of cocktails (nicely prepared) and fine wines are delicious enhancements.
Of course, I cannot end this review without giving a special mention to our server, Faith, who made our experience (including my sweetheart's 50th birthday) a complete delight. She brought such warmth and humour to our dining experience that we cannot wait to return and ask for her table!!
Lastly, thank you Justin for coming to introduce yourself to us! You and Jeremy are truly master craftsman. Your hands absolutely created magic!!
