Allen & Delancey

Before I was surprised with the Momofuku Cookbook, we had an early Christmas dinner at Allen & Delancey before heading down to Virginia for the holidays.

LOVE LOVE LOVED everything EVERYTHING about the restaurant. Great date spot! The Lobster Salad, Octopus Confit, Tagliolini with Rock Shrimp and the duck were TDF (to-die-for), though the dessert was not. Felt like the Banana Pavlova with banana cream, passion fruit and toasted coconut was burning a hole through the roof of my mouth.

Still. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Update: Did I mention they had a bacon-infused dinner roll that they offered us before the meal? Yes, bacon people, bacon!
