|Rabbit, served up in Heath Ceramics|
Last week, a few girlfriends and I went out to eat at Print Restaurant in Hell's Kitchen. This restaurant is not original in the growing trend of farm-to-table dining, however, it is NYC's first to have a full-time staff member solely devoted to seeking out local and seasonable items to put on the menu. My girlfriends and I had a great night, and Print didn't disappoint.
What's great about a restaurant like Print, is that you know the ingredients are fresh and, especially thanks to their website, you know the source of these ingredients. My meal and wine were delicious and I think owner Adam Block gets the overall feel of the restaurant just right. The decor is comfortable and easy, so it's just as inviting for a solo diner to have a meal after a meeting in Midtown as it is for a couple on a romantic date. All dishes are served up in minimalist, no-nonsense American-made Heath Ceramics dishware (one of my favorites).
Here's what I had on this visit to Print:
Appetizer -- Roasted Beet Salad, Avocado, Walnuts, Goat Cheese, Pea Greens, Citrus Vinaigrette (sorry, forgot to take a picture)
Entree (shown above) -- Sauteed Rabbit, Escarole, Roasted Tomatoes, Olives, Favas, Pine Nuts, Currants
Wine -- Hobo Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel
A special thanks to my aunt who introduced me to Print a couple of years ago by giving my husband and me a gift certificate for a really great meal. Such a thoughtful and well-appreciated gift.
