The most seductive dish I’ve been served recently. I can’t stop thinking about it. The Tropical at Jean-Georges, a ball of delicate coconut pastry, opens up to spill this gorgeous tumble of fruit. A fragrant tangle of tastes and textures (passionfruit!) I can’t think of a more exciting way to end a meal.
This is the Tropical’s humble demeanor as it arrives at the table:
A few other delights from that lunch at Nougatine:
Fresh pea soup. The croutons evaporate when you take a bite, topped with a pungent froth of parmesan. It’s like dreaming of spring while sitting at the table.
Pastina. Lemon. Sea urchin. Butter. Caviar. An edible punch: I leave the flavor to your imagination:
Here is the most delicious morsel I ate at North, a remarkably impressive restaurant in the pretty hamlet of Armonk: squid ink strozzapreti with rock shrimp and chives:
And finally, my favorite bite from a satisfying lunch at Via Carotta: delicate strands of lemony pasta tossed with peas, topped with prosciutto and sprinkled with Parmesan. A perfect classic combination. Eating this I thought: I’m glad to be alive.
