NYC: Marea (Aug. 2012)

November 2, 2012 Leave a comment

Authors: Victor and Monty
Restaurant: Marea
Exec Chef: Michael White

Date: August 13, 2012

Victor’s Notes: Monty had only been here once for dinner, and he had a terrible experience. I wanted him to try dinner here, as my last dinner here was wonderful. In the end, he enjoyed the meal a lot (and was rather surprised haha)!

Food:

Amuse-bouche 1:
Sea diver scallops with turnip, mint, and corned cream.

Monte: Mint, corn, and scallops…great combination of flavors. It seems simple, but it’s really well executed
