Havent been baking or cooking lately . Ive been out enjoying my family and friends . I wish I could say I've been enjoying the weather but here in CT its rained for what seems the last month!
In between rain showers I managed to take a trip with my favoritest cousin Donna to NYC. We were super lucky and got a really nice day. Last Thursday night we took a trip into the village and dined at Perilla Restaurant. Sound familiar? It might , its owned by Harold Dieterle, he won the first season of top chef. I have been dying to go there for ages now! It was suuuuuper yummy. To start we had
Hand Cut Tagliatelle
trumpet mushrooms, aged pecorino & wild pheasant cacciatore
this was SO good , I had never had pheasant before but it kinda tasted like chicken..
For the main course we had
Grilled Prime Creekstone Hanger Steak
sunchoke creamed spinach, red shallot puree & natural jus
Fiddle Head Fern & Sheep's Milk Ricotta Gnudi
forest mushrooms, asparagus, english peas & truffle butter
We shared both dishes . My favorite was the Gnudi , it was SO light and airy and the inside was so creamy.
For Dessert we had
Warm Chocolate Tart
dulce de leche sauce & vanilla ice cream
Vanilla Scented Doughnuts
key lime custard & a coconut refresher
both were very very good.. I liked the doughnuts , but i really loved the dulce de leche. wow I havent had a dessert that good in a while.
I felt silly taking pictures of the food in this very nice resaurant. so instead I will leave you with Donna and I stuff to the brim with the yummiest dinner!! I definately recomend Perilla . Its located at 9 Jones St in NYC. Check it out ... you wont regret it.
