The heart and soul of any establishment is/are the owner(s) of the place. Purple Yam's owners seem to be in the restaurant every evening (and the married couple operates their lunch service alone). And what a difference it makes. Really personalizes the dining experience.
Had dinner at Purple Yam last night. Place was fully booked so we ate on the bar; great perspective of the place. Food was good, creative and fresh ... a great "waker-upper" to every palette. Awesome ingredients blending perfectly to North American tastes. Make sure to try the local Philippine dish ... "Bikol Express". Loved it!!!! Make sure to leave space in your tummy for the dessert choices.
An awesome addition to Metropolitan New York's list of restaurant possibilities.
