SRF Wagyu Flatiron
with KD and M
The food was amazing. Every dish, from appetizer to the dessert – and I don’t even like dessert – perfectly conceived, perfectly executed. Can’t recall the last time that I was so thoroughly impressed by a restaurant.
The steak was the highlight, among equal highlights. Precisely grilled to an underdone medium rare, a touch of char on the crust, pornographically tender, delicately seasoned, enhanced by the red wine jus, enriched by the cauliflower puree, enlivened by the al dente zucchini and edamame. I could’ve had at least 3 more portions.
I’ll review the restaurant and the food in more detail in a future post – tonight, not really expecting much, I didn’t take many photos.
First time meeting KD’s partner, M, so I was happy to treat them to a special dinner. Never been to Blackbird myself, which I’ve heard about ad nauseam over the years, so it was a a treat for me too.
