Smorgas Chef: Not Ikea

Occasion: Gilt deal

This is Ikea’s meatballs:

The meatballs at Smorgas Chef are so much better. Not that Ikea’s are bad, but Smorgas Chef’s are fantastic.

Steven’s Thoughts:
– Man, this deal sounded so awesome, but I wasn’t quite sure about the whole smorgasboard option. We tried the one at Aquavit a while back during restaurant week and we ended up liking the restaurant less because of it. So, I was hesitant. But Monte had the deal, so we had to go.
– One cool thing about this restaurant is that they started their own farm in the Catskill mountains to provide fresh, local produce for their guests. You can find more info here.

Monte: The Gilt City deal was a starter cocktail for each guest, and then a four course meal with wine pairings. The smorgasboard at Aquavit was a buffet style, but I’d much rather eat the tasty smaller portions at Smorgas Chef than eat til I was sick at Aquavit. Steven and I each ordered different courses so we could try more of the menu. Sorry for the dim photos, hopefully the writing makes up for it.
