Blenheim Brings a Taste of The Catskills to the West Village
Trout and its roe, buttermilk and borage $20 ♥♥♥♥
Blenheim opened on May 19th in the West Village. I came with food blogger Eat Like A Lady for dinner patrolling first week of their opening yet I forgot to post this review on my blog until now. Whoops! Blenheim has a famous upstate NY farm where the owners split their time along with running the restaurant. Since Blenheim is practicing the farm-to-table experience, their menu changes very often due to the seasons. They informed us that they are going to have a tasting menu in few weeks which is very exciting. (4-course tasting with amuse bouche $65, wine pairing $45 ) One highlight of the evening was the Trout and its roe, buttermilk and borage from the appetizer menu. Another was the custard with chamomile, almonds and honey and I’m so not a dessert girl! It was very, very interesting and delish! Also I saw the steak with asparagus and I would love to order that if they still have it next time. It looked better than our Lamb and Guinea Hen! The downside of dinner was that the plating was a little messy on some of the dishes. This is totally understandable since new restaurants are adjusting many things in the beginning. At the end of dinner, we all received their homemade maple syrup to take home. It was very thoughtful of them 🙂
