Dinner at Double Crown

SCF fans may remember we went to Double Crown for cocktails back in March. Karen has friends who are friends with the general manager. That time, we didn’t stay for dinner. This time we did. It was a lot of fun.

We started in the back bar, called Madame Geneva, with cockatils. This was a cucumber-elderflower thing. Can’t remember its name.

Now we’re moving on to “starters.” Duck and watermelmon salad (cashews, scallions, lime, toasted rice):

Heirloom tomato salad (curry leaf paneer, basil seeds, olive oil):

Crispy drunken quail (cinnamon tamarind sauce, carrot, cilantro):

Tandoori foie gras torchon (earl grey prunes, watercress, nut loaf):

And now mains. Butternut squash curry (grilled flat bread, bean sprout-snake bean salad):

Sea bass with prawn dumplings, sesame broth, bok choy:

Two sides. Garam Masala potatoes:

And Lap Cheong Daikon Fries with Chili Sambal mayo:

Of course we shared everything. Some of it was delicious, some was just OK. But the meal was a hell of a lot of fun.

Afterwards we tried to get in to PDT, but alas it was a difficult time and they were all fully booked. But we did get a fun look at the East Village on a Saturday night —
