It will be hard to blog about this without a twinge of bitterness. I suggested a few restaurants to a friend and was unceremoniously SHOT DOWN by his boyfriend (and I believe my choice of Becco was called “pretentious.” BECCO!) Now I will try to forgive as I was warned that the boyfriend was picky, and thankfully he’s nice enough to make up for it… but BECCO?!?! Ok… /rant
So the end choice was to go back to a place where they had been before and enjoyed. I was slightly concerned when they made the choice to go to a place that was in my neighborhood but I had never heard of: Glass House Tavern (on 47th between 8th Ave and Broadway).
The decor was lovely inside.
And I appreciated the aesthetic.
We started with apps. Fresh Mozzarella & Tomato Salad sweet garlic, basil & extra virgin olive oil.
Organic Green Salad roquefort apple brioche.
Malfadine Pasta Primavera zucchini, yellow squash, fresh tomato & basil
Grilled Filet Mignon smashed potato, caramelized shallots and red wine
Free Range Roast Chicken garlic roast potato, tarragon jus
Then some dessert… Buttermilk Panna Cotta with berries
Pineapple Bread Pudding caramel, vanilla sauce
And then I, of course, ordered the Warm Chocolate Cake fresh berries, vanilla ice cream.
Notice the lack of commentary for this post? Yeah… that’s pretty much how I felt about the meal. Nothing stood out. Nothing was even good. Even that warm chocolate cake was bland and dry. And it looks like they just plated an upside down cupcake without frosting.
This place was fine. Just… fine.
