I love this restaurant, by far one of our best dining experiences in New York, Wall Centre. Part of Food Persuasion taking on NYC series.
Manzo was definitely my most memorable experience in New York. The restaurant is situated inside Eately, an upscale Italian market. Manzo, is the only restaurant inside the market that accepts reservations. Trust me, advanced reservations will be required.
My first dish Seared Foie Gras with Figs A smashing 5/5, I had a mini orgasm. This dish was ordered a la carte off their 7 course tasting menu.
Seared Striploin with Foie Gras & Cherry Aceto Balsamico, was rich and decadent. As expected the Striploin was seared to perfection. The Cherry Aceto Balsamico complimented very well with the meat and created a well rounded explosion of flavor. 5/5
Carne Cruda al Coltello with Enoki Mushrooms & Black Truffle Bruschetta (Carne Cruda, steak tartare. 4/5
Guinea Hen with Chanterelles, Foie Gras Sugo & Black Truffles, was phenomenal. Don’t let the white meat fool you, this dish is rich. With the 3 shared courses down, I was dying half way through my entrée. Yet I couldn’t stop! This dish had all my favourite ingredients. 4.5/5
Tagliata with Sweet Potato, Funghi Misti & Bone Marrow Agrodolce. (Tagliata, thinly sliced beef) Suck my fingers kind of succulent. Again, cooked to perfection and the bone marrow gave the dish a melt in your mouth finish. 5/5
Lamb Loin with Belly Confit, Cranberry Beans & Green Onions. Indulgent dish, think about it, belly confit with loin, I was rolling in fat and deliciously happy. 4.5/5
Yukon Gold Crocche, a potato side dish. If you have a limitless belly I suggest you order this side. Luscious potato croquette covered with crispy breadcrumbs. 4.5/5. I was delirious by this point, I could only frustratingly eat one.
If you are looking for restaurants to try in New York I recommend Manzo. For the ingredients alone it is very affordable. The bill came out to be $100 each between the three of us and, that includes 3 glasses of wine.
