The Dutch

At a fun dinner at the recently opened The Dutch, we started with fantastic cocktails – the Sullivan St Fix-up with gin, green chartreuse and celery bitters and the Aviation Royale with gin, maraschino and crème yvette.

The food started with a loaf of moist, dense cornbread with whipped butter.

The Hiramasa tartare with salsa verde was bright and fresh, and balanced by a small touch of crema and crunch of seeds.

The beet salad was also light with fresh beets, smoked eggs and dill over a yogurt sauce.

Entrees were massive and amazing – the lamb neck was incredibly tender in a deep, smoky, slow-burning mole sauce over dirty rice.

A hangar steak arrived with a beautiful onion topping dripping down the side, and a creamy smoked potato and horseradish side.
