Butter and sea salt

Remember the sea salt and butter we had at Jean Georges?  IT WAS THE BOMB.  
And we found another bomb here at Gramercy Tavern.  Honestly, this butter is the best.  We gotta find out if we could buy it at our supermarket.  That way we could stuff our faces with butter everyday.  MMM!

Grapefruit Amberjack Fish

The Grapefruit Amberjack was the special that day.  The way the waitress described it sounded so yummy, we both ordered the dish.  That's why there are two photos!  They look similar, but if you look closely, you can tell that the amberjack in the second photo is boxier in shape, the greens are organized in a different fashion and hahaha

We both agreed that this dish was one of the best meals we had in New York.  The citrus salad was quite amazing.  The tanginess went well with the amberjack and pretty much by itself as well.  We licked our plates clean

Macadamia and Coconut Brown Butter Cake with Coffee Ice Cream

Look!  We ordered a brown egg for dessert!   Hard-boiled hehehe

No but really, doesn't the scoop of ice cream look like an egg.  At first, the two of us were like "uh...think you gave us an egg..."  When we were told it was coffee ice cream, it blew our minds.  

First off, the scoop's not round!  

Second, why is it so freaking small?  It's half the size of a single scoop at Baskin Robbins.  But we forgive them because it was so much better than Baskin Robbins.

Although the ice cream was better than the cake.  The cake was alright and typical, not even sure what else to say about it.  Just imagine a Macadamia and Coconut Brown Butter Cake and that's pretty much what it tastes like.

Ricotta Cheesecake with Black Currant Sorbet and Chocolate

Look!  We ordered a red egg for dessert!   HAHAHA

But man, this sorbet was SO GOOD.  It black currant flavor EXPLODED in your mouth.  It's really too bad the scoop was so small...   And the two of us had to share it....

The cheesecake was also fantastic.  It was rich but not too heavy and had a light, sweet flavor to it which paired nicely with the sour sorbet.
