Ate at Michy's on Sunday evening to celebrate my return from Brazil.
One guest was a friend of one of the chefs so we were comped a course or two. Even though, it is expensive BUT well worth the expense! One unique thing about Michy's is the menu: order half or full portions of most items, giving the table the option to try a lot of things.
Started with Blue Cheese Croquetas, Fig Marmalade [comped] so we had time to peruse the very interesting menu.
Roast Beet Salad, Red Wine Vinaigrette, Pecans, Endive, Horseradish Crema
Cured Foie Gras, Sweet Peach-Vanilla Marmalade, Brioche Crisps [excellent]
Turks and Caicos Conch, Escargot Style, Garlic, Parsley, Butter
Fennel Dusted Sweetbreads, Bacon Braised Fennel, Kumquat Brown Butter [outstanding]
Comped Starter Course: Seared Foie Gras, Corn Pancake, Savory Maple Syrup [the best ever!]
Fettuccine 'Carbonara' My Way, Smoked Bacon, Crispy Jamón Serrano, Prosciutto, Melting St. Andre [perfect]
Short Ribs Falling off the Bone, Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Moroccan Carrots [sinful!]
Three Bone Colorado Lamb Chop, Chick Pea Panisse, Eggplant Zaalouk, Natural Jus [very good]
Gnocchi 'Lasagna,' Meat Bolognese, Creamy Parmesan, Melting Buffalo Mozzarella [exquisite comfort food]
Bread Pudding, Cuatro Leches, Chocolate Cake and for me a glass of Sherry with a plate of fruit and nuts ['La Música' as it is called in Spain]
Water was Badoit [in their ruby red bottle],
white wine was a Gysler Riesling and the red a stunning Beaumes de Venise
