We purchased a Groupon to David Burke Kitchen in Soho before making our trip to NYC. The Groupon cost $39 and it covered Lunch for Two with Appetizers, Entrees, and Desserts, up to a $96 value.
We walked over from our hotel, I swear, we chose the best hotel… it was close to everything, The Courtyard in Soho. Any who, once you walk into the restaurant you take the stairs down to see the entrance of the restaurant. Before entering, there is a large fake pic, which we enjoyed taking a picture with. As we entered the restaurant, we were welcomed by a friendly hostess and he seated us promptly. The restaurant has a country barn vibe, are portraits of farmers around the restaurant, and a wood island in the middle which serves as a station for the wait staff. Everything on the menu looked delicious and we each got to choose an appetizer, entree, and dessert.
This is their complimentary dish to munch on before ordering, we just tried the long bread sticks, they had great flavor.
Max ordered the Duck Confit served with Crostinis as an appetizer, he had never had it before; it tasted like liver mousse. You have to be a big fan of Duck Confit to truly enjoy it, it’s an acquired taste, one that we have not acquired yet.
I ordered their crab cake, their version of it. It was delicious and very light. The sauces went great with the crab and their version was one I had never seen before. It looked like it was crusted in thin bread sticks, similar to the ones they gave us complimentary during the beginning of the meal.
I had their ravioli as my main course. It was one big ravioli piece in a pancetta broth and stuffed with an egg yolk. The flavors were very strong for someone that doesn’t like salty foods, they should have taken it down a notch with the pancetta.
Max ordered their burger and he found it very enjoyable and filling. He wasn’t hungry for the rest of the day and din’t even finish the whole burger.
The burger came with delicious jalapeno fries that are a definite must try, or at least try your own version at home.
We both ordered the same dessert, it was a chocolate cake with bourbon ice cream. Wow o Wow, this was heaven! The alcohol flavors kicked in and it was a good combinations of flavors. Their caramel sauce was delicious, but this dish really didn’t need it.
