A Couple of Tarts

We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink, for dining alone is leading the life of a lion or wolf. ~ Epicurus

Dinner at Home

Had dinner at Home recently. Not my home, but Home the restaurant located in the West Village. Home is owned by the same could who owns the Shinn Estate Vineyards out on the North Fork. We took a trip out there this past October and absolutely loved their winery. You can read more about it here. They now have a bed and breakfast on the property. It sounds heavenly, but expensive. Maybe once I win the lottery.

The food at Home is delicious. They combine seasonal ingredients to make dishes that satisfy all your senses. We shared a salad of warm goat cheese, grilled apples and greens. The homemade salami on the cheese plate blew us all away. RFC would have been happy just to eat a stick of it with a boy scout knife. Some of the highlights of the entrees were the pork chop, crusted with spices, and the mac and cheese. For dessert we ordered chocolate pudding and pear pie. While the pie was a bit disappointing (the crust was soggy), the pudding was divine in texture and in taste.

Oh, and two neat things about Home: all the wines are from the East Coast and many are from the North Fork and there is a plate of chocolate chip cookies on the front windowsill to either placate you as wait for a table or cleanse your palate on the way out.
