Executive Chef Floyd Cardoz ”White Street” in Tribeca
White Street 221 W. Broadway (b/t Franklin St & White St ) NYC (212)-944-8378
Having opened on September 18th, White Street is located on West Broadway in Tribeca with Executive Chef Floyd Cardoz. Chef Cardoz was once the Executive Chef at Tabla where he was renowned for his New Indian cuisine, melding Western technique with the flavors of his background. Recently he was Executive Chef at North End Grill where he left to rekindle his love of Indian cuisine and write a cook.
I arrived at White Street around 6:45pm on Thursday night. Since it is still new, the menu is not online yet and their OpenTable page was not set up so I made a reservation by phone. As soon as I was seated the waiter serves us complimentary Prosecco. Nice 🙂
Braised beef short ribs, anson mills grits, hors eradish,shoe string potatoes $32 ♥♥♥
Near the entrance is a lounge room for drinks and in the back is a large dining room. The decor is bit flashy for my taste so I give it only 3 hearts ♥♥♥
My friend and I shared two appetizers, two entrees and one side dish, and one dessert in the end.
North atlantic sea bream, shaved brusssels sprouts, tamarind glaze $29 ♥♥♥
My two favorite dishes were both appetizers. The Fluke Crudo had very much a Japanese flavor (soy sauce base) and it was clean and light. I absolutely loved it. The stuffed squid was one of the most baby squids I ever had. The squid was so small and cute looking as well as flavorful. I highly recommend both dishes.
