When there is the promise of a fabulous meal, our motto is yes to planes, trains and automobiles. It’s worth the hike. Delaware and Hudson is such a place. This Brooklyn gem was recently awarded one Michelin star and well deserved! Great food, cozy atmosphere, it’s the perfect little date spot. Plus the seasonal/weekly $50 prefixe dinner is such a steal nowadays, you don’t have to break the bank in order to have a top notch evening.
We started with a selection of canapés – housemade mini pretzel rolls, salt cod croquettes, and swiss chard pie. Paired with house Cava, these little light and salty nibbles were the perfect start to the evening. The second course is one that we’ve been dreaming about ever since. Housemade pappardelle with goose ragu. SUBBBBLIME. Light, creamy, rich, meaty… Goose is the new duck ragu.
The main courses of black bass and short ribs were equally amazing. The combinations of textures and flavors had just the right balance of creativity and comfort. Nothing too out there and even though the dishes were seemingly simple – you know the chef spent hours preparing the dishes to appear effortless. The Michelin guys were spot on in awarding Delaware and Hudson a star.
Dessert’s vanilla panna cotta and chocolate cake pairing was the perfect ending to an exceptional meal. Definitely adding this spot to my seasonal go-to list. Loving the fact that the menu will for sure be different (although craving the goose ragu right now!)
