At verynice, we like to break out of the daily routine once in a while. Our favorite kind of adventure? Anything food-related. Last week, the veryniceNY team went on an epic dinner quest to the marrow, a contemporary German/Italian restaurant in the West Village. This was part of NYC Restaurant Week, a city-wide event in which participating restaurants offer promotions and special prix fixe menus to diners.
Our meal highlights included chicken milanese (rich and flavorful with a perfect peppery bite of rocket), stuffed cabbage (hearty and delightfully complex), and beer braised mussels (a more modern and flavorful take on mussels in broth). I mean, how can you go wrong?
This beauty above was (past tense as it's now devoured, of course) our yogurt panna cotta. It was delicate and velvety and accented brilliantly with a honey, caramel, blueberry, and lavender compote. Perhaps the best part of the evening— at least according to those of us with the sweet tooth.
Pictured above is a very happy veryniceNY team. We came; we saw; we ate (arguably too much). Restaurant week equals a stunning success, and we recommend you make it down to the marrow or any of the participating restaurants before the end of Restaurant Week on August 15.
