Dinner Adventures with veryniceNY

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? 

 
Yogurt panna cotta.

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.
