This week’s Fashionplate is another birthday edition, yes I have amazing friends and family. Thanks my loves. I’ve always loved Park Avenue Winter (Spring/Summer/Autumn) when it was located on the Upper East Side, so when it closed and reopened in the old General Assembly space, I knew it was another hot spot in the making. One of my besties and me went there on a weekday evening and were seated immediately with our res. It looked gorgeous with all white everything contrasting with the sumptuous red banquettes. White lace and pearls were overlaying and all the staff had cute aprons on that said Winter.
I started with the Road to Jericho cocktail that was gorg and had fig molasses in it and came in Copper mule mug. We then proceeded to split the Steak Tartare Rossini and Winter Tarte Flambée For Two to start. The steak tartare came on two toasts and had a foie gras and truffle garnish and was tasty although I wish they gave more tartare. I can eat it by itself without the bread. The tarte flambee was also delish and featured lardons, cheese and Brussels sprouts with all sorts of accruments and was yummy but very large we couldn’t finish it all if we wanted our entree. After that we switched to wine, I got a nice red. We ended up doing splitsies again, see how I get what I want when it’s my birthday? Lol. We split the Halibut with black truffles and a brioched egg that was buttery soft and delish. Yes I like truffles on everything! I was curious about the Chateaubriand but had dinner the next day at STK and didn’t want to overdo the red meat. We also decided to get the side of potato latkes that were beyond crunchy and addicting.
Now on to the fashion part of the Fashionplate. The crowd was different then when it was located on the UES, there were still older couples just not as many. There happened to be a lot of big groups of Finance types, having holiday team dinners probably due to proximity to Credit Suisse and the like. So think lots of suits and shift dresses. I was a little out of place in my Boho inspired outfit but hey it was my bday week/month so yolo.
