I think the best part about spring is the new menu items chefs have created for their restaurants. It's around this time that new items and daily specials are popping up around town and diners couldn't be more excited. With spring brings a new attitude, hungry people and new ideas on how to cook, what to cook, and where to get the best food. Marcus has rolled out his new and exciting spring menus at Red Rooster Harlem and American Table Cafe and Bar at Lincoln Center. New items for American Table include Pea Soup with ham, basil and sour cream; Chicken Salad Baguettes with chicken liver spread and Doro Wat Chilaquiles with crispy tortillas, tomato salad, fresh cheese, and lime.
Head uptown to Harlem and enjoy the new Spring-infused menus at Red Rooster featuring a wide range of flavors from several different cultures. A southern favorite, fried green tomatoes, are accompanied by cult favorites iceberg lettuce, bacon, and buttermilk dressing. Ramen also hits the Rooster accompanied with pork belly, crab, head-on shrimp, and teff noodles. A seafood salad gets a curried egg yolk, and the re-created Chop Suey has fluffy basmati rice and exotic mushrooms. It's been a harsh winter, and we are all so happy that Spring is here. Lots of delicious meals and outdoor seating is on the way.
