Supper at X20 in Yonkers

Kelli and I had dinner at the Dylan Lounge at X20 in Yonkers on Friday, and I’m happy to report that the food is as good as ever there.

Jack Rose highball:


A gin highball with Creme Yvette, sort of like an Aviation but with ice:


Both delicious.

Corn panna cotta with bacon and jalapeno:


Summery, creamy and sweet, with a nice pick-me-up from the jalapeno and crunch from the bacon.

Tuna tartare with a quail egg:


A nice umami from the broth, and the creamy quail egg only added to the rich tuna.

Yellowtail jalapeno roll:


We were in the mood for some sushi, so ordered that roll, plus the scallop sashimi below with truffle:


All very fresh and satisfying.

The pate “grand mere”:


Fois and pistachios mixed in, served along with spicy mustard and cornichons. Terrific.

Barely poached white tuna sashimi with sea beans and a warm broth:

Unctous and sweet. Made me very happy.

Heirloom tomatoes with mozzarell and kale:

Just as a caprese should be, with milky mozz and sweet tomatoes.

A look at the Dylan Lounge from our seats:

Another tuna dish, a special of seared tuna over a pineapple-shisho salad:

Good combination with the sweet and herbaceous salsa.

Quail over spaetzle:

The apricot sauce on top balanced the meaty quailty of the quail nicely.

Butterscotch pudding:


Rich and decadent. Much like X20 itself!

Kelli, as she’s waiting for the train:

Good times.
