I'm 24 today. Yikes, how did that happen?? I celebrated an early birthday dinner with my parents on Friday at one of my favorite restaurants, Gramercy Tavern, which we almost didn't make since we were coming back into the city and got stuck in heavy traffic. I flew into my apartment and literally got changed in about 4 minutes my choice of wearing a corseted dress was definitely not a smart idea. I thought I was going to burst through the seams after the third course.
Arctic char with radish and citrus (was my favorite dish)
Carrot soup with cilantro and lime yogurt
A Gramercy Tavern signature dish: smoked trout with cippolini puree and pickled onions. Love this.
Rabbit dumplings in green garlic broth
Beef with caramelized shallots, sweet potato and squash
Meringue, sorbet and grapefruit to cleanse the palate!
They surprised me with an extra dessert, peanut butter semifreddo and the chewiest macaron I've ever tried which is how I prefer them.
Brioche french toast with rhubarb
Chocolate cake with salted cashew ice-cream
They always send you home with their coffee cake which is damn good for breakfast.
Here's hoping to an excellent 24th year of life!
