Craftbar (NYC: Gramercy)

By in 03: NYC, Favorite Food Entries

The first day is officially a client’s day so even our meal is charged on them. 😀 Our producer been to this casual New York restaurant before and brought us there.
Mine: Pan-Roasted Foie Gras (very oily but heavenly), Maine Sea Urchin Spaghetti (so fresh, sauce so flavored) and my dessert Steamed Orange Polenta Cake with Pomegranate Sorbet. *O* (my god I haven’t had pomegranate since I was little in HK~~)

Others: Endive Salad and Chatham Cod

Slow-Roasted Sirloin, Crispy Chocolate Gateau, Caedamon Icecream

Everything is delicious and the menu is unique. By ‘casual’ of course meaning a more loosen up but still go-out-at-night no jean attair type of slight dress-upsy vibe that are not common in LA ^^;;; It has a nice New York scene. And the price is still $$ level, because this restaurant is actually a spin-off from a way more highend restaurant called simply “Craft.” It’s in here that I experienced the ‘shaking’ of the subway underground. Most 1st floor in every building will feel the shake and noise of the subway train underneath.

    Yeah once I heard about it being ‘free’, I immediately change my mind and getting the foie gras ^^;;; I felt a bit conscious of wearing jeans…I only brought this one crappy pair of jeans and rough looking boot, I envied people wearing long dresses and pointy heely boot XOOOO (I only brought a tiny luggage…)
