Diary of The Glam Foodie: Winter Restaurant Week at SHO Shaun Hergatt
I love NYC Restaurant Week because it gives you a chance to Sip, Chat, Chow at some of NY’s top restaurants for a fraction of the price. On this particular night, we ventured downtown to SHO. And it was yet another great night of fine dining and fabulous food.
Sho’s chic, modern and elegant decor transports you into a world of exquisite sophistication. The wine corridor is magnificent- rows of wine bottles encased in glass with a long middle bar topped with candles.
This is a place fit for foodies. The global accented French fare provides a perfect combination of flavors and textures. And I can’t forget about the impeccable service.
Tasmanian Ocean Trout- The Kalamansi dressing added a nice coating to the meaty trout.
Sunchoke Veloute with a Slow poached farm egg- Mouth-pleasing goodness! It was so unexpected.
Pearl Barley Rissoto with Maitake Mushroom- Tasty and texturally satisfying.
Char Siu Pork Belly- Intensely flavored and tender.
THE SWEET SPOT-
Warm Beignets with Caramel Creme- You can’t go wrong with beignets…and this time was no different. The caramel creme added a nice touch to the flaky pastry.
Tarte AU Citron: Toasted meringue, chocolate mint sorbet- This wasn’t my cup of tea- it reminded me of a peppermint patty.
Macchiato: I loved the cup!
SIP: New York State Wines- A pairing with each course. I was a bit skeptical because of the region but it was pretty good.
