[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: March 6, 2017]
After the rigors of the Food & Wine extravaganza in South Beach, a quiet week back in New York in the residual snow. Some home cooking, some German poetry, The Battle of Algiers on video.
Oh and a couple of restaurants meals.
There was a lunch in the Bar Room at MoMA featuring grilled shrimp and coleslaw, followed by pork belly with sauerkraut. Cabbage-heavy week. And some Albert Setz Sylvaner.
The same day, a blow-out dinner at Buenos Aires, the Argentinian grill on East 6th Street, still thriving today. A vast mixed grill of mollejas, salchichas, morcilla and riñones; vacío (flank steak) with papas fritas and chimichurri sauce. Trapiche pinot noir to oil the wheels.
Meeting and chatting with Gabrielle Hamilton in Miami had put Prune back on our list: that was the other restaurant dinner of the week, beginning with two signature dishes:
Monkfish liver, toasts
Marrow bones, parsley salad
Lamb shank, escarole with raisins
