Places we're curious about


Recommended Posts

 

Just slightly peculiar to have a slogan, "Purveyor of fine beef products," under a picture of a leaping antelope, no?

 

The springbok is South Africa's national symbol (hence their rugby team is The Springboks). You can also get biltong made out of springbok in SA, but obviously not here. ;)

Walked by that newish place Turquoise on E. 81. Nice fish menu - lots of whole fish, and meditarannean stuff. Not wacky expensive, believe it or not. If they do all the fish well, might be nice. N

I went a few months ago. I liked the wings; the potato mochi are good if you don't mind the typical mochi texture. They're served with a sweetish sauce and lots of butter. The place really is small

By the way, we went yesterday, and N said their biltong is excellent--just like home. Not cheap at $35/pound, though. They have some premade 4-oz packs, but you'll want it freshly sliced because they'll slice it razor thin.

Anything know about Vin sur Vingt, in the Flatiron? Very traditional French small plates, and claims to serve 50 wines by the glass-but doesn't provide even a sample list on the website.
