New York City’s South Gate Restaurant
was last night’s place for dinner. This beautiful restaurant with a swirling fireplace made the best scenery to a freezing New York City night. The temperature on the low 20’s as we got there was quickly reduced with a deliciously dark and extremely tasty roasted onion consommé with miniature ravioli. The consommé was perfectly elaborated with a slight hint of the sweetness of the onions that enveloped the tiny cheese ravioli as I ate.
Another appetizer we ordered was the Hamachi, perfectly served with a touch of lime and the wild mushroom soup with mustard greens served on a short martini cup. This was so good my daughter had it and loved it. As a dinner dish she ordered the smoked hot duck, medium rare of course and may I say this is the best duck I have ever had. The smoke was sublte and the taste was complete, the texture perfect.
The amousse bouche were delicate cheese puffs made of the best choux and tiny cod cakes.
Others ordered the salmon and the beef, very good too.
For dessert the favorite was the Litchi sorbet!!!
Don’t miss this place with a menu created by chef Kerry Heffernan.
