Yes. Today is Friday and as in so many other Fridays we do love to talk about hotels, places to visit or, in today’s case, restaurants.
We will drive, fly or walk to New York City and visit Cosme, one of the World’s 50 best restaurants 2017 by Condé Nast Traveler.
At Flatiron District, Cosme serves contemporary Mexican-inspired cuisine and world-renowned superstar Chef Enrique Olvera and his team create dishes rooted in Mexican flavors and traditions, while also celebrating local and seasonal ingredients from the Hudson Valley and surrounding region.
Chef Enrique Olvera aimed to change the way Americans eat and think about Mexican food. What makes the menu so contemporary is the absence of familiar Mexican cuisine markers. While you won’t find enchiladas on the menu anytime soon, the core flavors are Mexican, and many of the ingredients are sourced locally.
Olvera has also clearly tailored his menu at Cosme to New Yorkers’ current obsession with the clean, the comforting, and the non-ornamental. There are only 19 dishes on the menu, not counting dessert, and they’re served in wide bowls or on clean white plates. In accordance with the local custom, many are designed for sharing, and like in many popular bar restaurants, one’s enjoyment of them can depend a good deal on where one happens to sit.
Adjacent to the main dining room is a separate bar area where guests can enjoy the full menu in a lively atmosphere. Cosme’s beverage program focuses on artisanal spirits and mirrors its cuisine, letting the high quality ingredients shine.
One of the most Instagrammed desserts in the city, a meringue made with burned and pulverized corn husks, striking with its eerie grayish hue, was cracked open in half to sandwich a pool of corn mousse and vanilla cream.
Feels like visiting or what?
Snug moments everyone! 🙂
