Friday night dinner with Robyn, Greg, and Kåre at the recently opened Sonia Rose on the LES. We were there for the food, yes, but more importantly, to visit our friend Alice who just started waitressing at the restaurant Head to Robyn’s post for a more vivid account…we’re turning out 3rd quarter financials at work this week, so just photos for today. Happy Halloween!
Warm housemade brioche – this was a dummy loaf for the soft opening, less buttery and eggy than a standard brioche, leaning on the sweet end.
Trio of butters. Clockwise from top left: jalepeno, sweet, and cherry butter.
Amuse. Spinach and cheese tucked into puff pastry rounds.
For appetizers, Greg and I went for the fresh fettuccine with peppers and shitake mushrooms, balsamic reduction…
…while Robyn and Kåre did the seafood corn bisque.
Entree. Free range hen with portobello truffle sauce. Roasted brussel sprouts and tomatoes.
Entree. Grilled hanger steak. Swiss chard, port wine reduction, and mashed potatoes.
The dessert sampler. Clockwise from top: apple pie, vanilla ice cream, chocolate opera cake, and a key lime bar.
Blood orange and chocolate sorbet.
Along with the check came a plate of dark chocolate dipped strawberries…
…and a butter rich pecan sandies dusted in sugar.
I’m not sure how long the soft opening prix fixe lasts, but priced at $20.08 for three courses, it’s a bargain worth taking advantage of.
Will be back with a post later this weekend…hope you eat lots of chocolate candy, pudding, custards, meat, fats and other delicious stuff tonight!
