Marc Forgione

Marc Forgione          134 Reade street, (between Hudson St & Greenwich St) NYC

Iron chef America, Chef Marc Forgione has two other restaurants in Tribeca, American Cut and Khe-Yo, but this is his original spot in Tribeca. There were five of us, and of course we ordered two of the chef’s famous dishes: Chili Lobster and Chicken Under a Brick. Both dishes were DIVINE GOODNESS! and perfect comfort food for this weather.  Although I loved those two plates, my favorite was Halibut en Croute, Artichoke, Golden Raisins, Hazelnuts, Sauce “Proposal”.   The sauce is truly rich and fantastic.

At the end of dinner Chef Forgione was so sweet to show up at our table. He told us the story of how he came up with his famous Chili Lobster dish after his  dining experience during an Asia trip. I love love listening to stories like that!! And Chef Forgione gave me his steak knife too! Yay *\(^_^)/* I eat out so much but meeting chefs are always the most exciting part of dining.  The great ambiance and food here is the type where I can come all the time with friends on any night of the week. This place has a New York chic and casual feel to it so it’s nice to take visitors or friends from out of town too. How great to know that Chef Forgione spends a lot of his time here, even though he is SuPa busy with all of his work and projects (♥0).  Thank you chef for the fantastic food and it was wonderful meeting you. xoxo
