170 Waverly Place
On this Thursday Annie and I tried a place recommended by Annie's sister Susie. As Susie said "Girrrlll, you've gotta have one of their drinks" followed by and the food was . . .
So off we went - west on Christopher Street, where the streets intersect in ways that only occur in the West Village of Manhattan, until we came to Waverly Place.
Girl - the drinks. The cocktails are fresh, inventive and hard to choose a single one. But choose we did and settled on a K'Naan which came with a very nice story about its creation and naming. It has dark rum, maple syrup and smoked pineapple - 3 of my favorite things. The smoke flavor was unusual.
We started with appetizer's. I had deviled eggs on an arugula salad with white anchovy. The eggs were cooked perfectly with yolks of creamy goodness flavored with just he right amount of dijon mustard to give it a bite but not enough to linger too long. They were served atop a bed of delicately dressed arugula and halved grape tomatoes. Annie had 6 of the freshest oysters, from MA. She paired them with a nice spinach and parmesan salad dressed in just the right amount of balsamic and herbs
We were served a side order of shredded and sautéed brussell sprouts lightly topped with sriracha. Again delicious.
So we ate past room for dessert once again. Surprise!
I think I want to have dinner here for my birthday.
