I should also note that the bar food menu for this residency is extremely attractive.

We've seen this kind of modern Jewish cooking before, though it sounds like never this well executed (and never, to my knowledge, with Argentine influences).


I'm not sure there are any argentine influences except the big meat idea.

Rye.  Aquavit.  Mustard powder.  Schwartz's Montreal steak spice mix.  Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray.

 

Mix.   Drink.  Vomit.

 

I'm reminded of one of my favorites from Amor Y Amargo's heyday -- Scandi Gibson

 

2 oz Krogstad Aquavit

1 oz Cocchi Americano

15 drops Bitterman's Celery Shrub

10 drops Bitterman's Hellfire Shrub

cocktail onion

 

As advertised, tastes like rye bread in a glass. Many years later, still in regular rotation at home.

Jewish-Argentinian, Japanese-Peruvian... close enough.

 

We had the kibbeh, the gefilte fish, the foie, the tongue sandwiches, the varenike, and the Jerusalem mix.

 

Pretty good all around, but I'm more a fan of the small plates than the larger plates. The larger plates seemed fine to me – well-executed versions of whatever, but they just weren't that interesting. Like, they were good, but they weren't really the kind of thing where it seemed to make sense to go out to a nice restaurant to eat.

 

A lot of the small plates were just fun all-around, though.


I didn't tip at Per Se either.

How does the wine list at a place like this work? Did they just... put all the French wines back in storage or something?

That's because it absolutely doesn't make sense to go out to a nice restaurant to eat this kind of food.

 

You'd have to be meshuggeneh.

Ever been to the UES 2nd Avenue Deli's upstairs cocktail bar? They do some of this to varying degrees of success.
