I've been slacking on posting dinners because I feel like it can get a bit redundant and it's not as exciting for me or you guys anymore... like it's just, "oh there's Alice being a fatass again." But I definitely wanted to share these shots from Hotel Griffou from a dinner a few weeks ago and a Sunday brunch a little over a week ago. The chef here is one of the nicest people you can meet and hasn't had a day off all year. I wish him great success. :)
Pictured below is a "Strange Love" cocktail, amuse (forgot what was in this soup; ah this is what happens when it takes me two weeks to get my act together), jonah crab salad, seared scallops, poached egg, halibut, tuna bolognese, lamb (shoulder?), lemon cheesecake, and chocolate hazelnut brioche pudding. A rich meal to say the least.
I then found myself back here a few days later with these girls for a very late brunch (well, maybe not by NYC standards). Below is just a sampling of what was consumed that afternoon - piri piri shrimp, shrimp turnovers, and cod fritters. My burger, which was topped with pork and eggs, was particularly decadent.
I skipped out on the Hotel Griffou lamb dinner last night (because I needed a break from eating out and because I'm just not a die-hard fan of lamb), but I heard I missed out on a great time! Clearly, I need to make more stomach space...
