New York: Basso 56

A restaurant that I utterly adored, Basso Est, has now moved to midtown and is called Basso 56. Lunch with an editor from Random House (it's only a block away) gave me the chance to try it at its new location and it certainly did not disappoint. The editor declared it her new "go to" place and I will hope to entice many other colleagues to try it out.

I started with the Rughetta e Pere Al Capreno, a salad with arugula, fennel, goat cheese, and pears in a champagne vinaigrette. Very tasty. My main entree was Fagottino alla Polpa di Aragosta, crepe purses filled with lobster and a confit, served with tomato and chive velute sauce. OMG. I ate every bit and didn't have enough room for dessert, even though I recall this place having most excellent panna cotta.
