Insane $25 Lunch @ Tommaso's In Bath Beach
1) $5 giant stuffed (3 meats, peas, shrooms, etc) rice ball, fab!!
2) 1/2 of a Focaccia Pizza, cabbage pancetta and taleggio cheese ($5)
3) but the star was a $15 plate of Nantucket Bay Scallops cooked whole in shell, this is a first for me and they are up for best scallops EVER, simple garlic/wine/herbs/salt/pepper/oil/butter sauce that was gulpable.
I would like to just go and do 3 of those for $45 and a nice white wine and a loaf of bread....GRAND CRU!!
Chef Tom is cooking better than ever....
Lucky to have scored another birthday dinner last night (really milking it,) this time at Corton. Once again blew my mind. I haven't been going out much to super high end places, so I can't really say with any authority, but I'd be surprised if there was any place better. I always hold 11 Madison as my dream meal (you know, just in case anyone is offering,) but although Corton has a slightly more relaxed vibe, I think it easily competes on the food.
I had the “Vol-au-Vent” - Crayfish, Morels, Anise Hyssop followed by the Pheasant with Cassoulet of Coco Beans, Red Cabbage Geleé, Albufera Sauce followed by waves of cheese and dessert. Drank the Trousseau Blend - Puffeney Arbois Rouge ‘Vieilles Vignes,’ Jura 2004 on Skinny's recommendation and of course was not disappointed.
Super recommended, and in the whole scheme of things really not that outrageously expensive ($79 for three courses.) And double points for the amazing website.
