Yet another place that I have missed terribly since I moved. So much so that I ate so quickly I forgot to photograph several dishes.
lotus root, dubu, seaweed, chili oil
beef tartare, nooruk, mustard green, myungran
sunchoke, oyster mushroom, black truffle, orange
octopus, kimchi, chorizo, parsley
So much about the reviews is accurate and so much is not accurate at all. I am certainly biased. For me it will never be the same as Chicago, but the views sure do help compensate.
Up the Ice Ante – oat, marcona almond, white peach, horchata
Heart of Stone – pistachio, peach, fresno, lapsang, bourbon
Loaded to the Gunwalls – mace, pineapple, hazelnut, batavia arrack
It took me far too long to get to Atoboy but in my defense I knew I would be able to try much more if not dining alone. Each orders 3 dishes for $36/person which has to be one of the absolute best deals in Manhattan and additional dishes may be added. Looking back through my pictures I really loved everything. There has been so much great tartare in the past year and this version certainly goes on the list. And I can’t even look at the corn photo without getting serious cravings. If you haven’t been, do not wait as long as I did.
