Instead, it was the end of lunch service, but the staff all seemed happy to serve me and the three other tables that arrived after mewhile the room was bright and cheery on a pissing-down-rainy day, and the wine choices were tantalizing.
More stunningly, the menu was quite imaginative; I never expected to find Korean BBQ duck with kabocha puree and green beans as an option.
What arrived was even better than described: The sweet squash was the perfect foil for the mild duck breast, while half the plate was covered with a tangle of haricots vert, frizzled shallots, quartered baby beets in two colors, a few leaves of lettuce and a showering of microgreens.
I would even make a special trip.
It blew Craftbar out of the water. Maurizio Trattoria, where an editor treated me to lunch and where I have only myself to blame for letting hope triumph over experience with the gnocchi.
My mixed green salad was exceptional, a great mass of greens with sliced tomatoes and slivered endive in just enough dressing, as were the bread and peppery olive oil. But those gnocchi, a daily special, were half gummy, half slimy, and the Gorgonzola sauce on them packed zero blue pungency. When will I ever learn that gnocchi should never be attempted here at home?
Maybe, if someone else is paying. Craftbar, where the waiter was so harried it almost gave me indigestion and where the food seemed to have been conceived and cooked in anger. The fish was chewy, the cabbage in big chunks that were impossible to cut and the whole combination just felt heavy and weirdly depressing.
On the plus side, the bread sticks were as perfectly irresistible as ever. But on the debit side, the waiter, almost running in place in his impatience at questions, informed me that the Timorasso was fruity and from Spain, exactly the same description as for the white from Ribeiro.
I noted that Piedmont is in Italy and ordered the Timorasso anyway.
The feta-mint spread served with the pita was a nice touch, as was the tiny glass of moscato doled out by Gus himself as we were paying.
He was also my wine consultant, calling out a fine choice from the table where he sat over paperwork in the bright room. The usual four Greek spreads were all satisfying, and I quite liked the Horiatiki salad of feta, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, capers and olives.
The one waitress was suspiciously mellow, but she got the job done admirably.
Probably, for lunch only. Metro Marche, where the food, wine and service once again trumped the location. I always start to lose my nerve the closer we get to the Port Authority after leaving a movie, but it is the best bet for blocks.
Ozen on Amsterdam Avenue, where my spring-breaking consort and I headed for lunch on a day when our building had no water and where our reward was the most abysmal food I have had out in eons.
The sign in Spanish advertising an urgent need for a dishwasher should have been a warning, as much as the pages-long menu, but we stuck it out for the sake of newness.Laura Ashley Careers.
