There are thousands of restaurants in New York City. From one-dollar pizza to the some of the worlds most expensive delicacies, if it can be sourced and legally sold, someone in New York has it on the menu. When we came down from the walk in the clouds, it was time for lunch. The Shops at Hudson Yards has a dozen options. All most all of them looked interesting. So how did I pick one, the sheep on the sign. Anyplace that has a sheep as its logo has potential to be great. And it was. Imaginative British inspired, made with the finest ingredients.
We were seated at the peak of the lunch rush. The actor filling in a waiter, was sweet and friendly. He did warn us that the kitchen was a little backed up, to which I ordered a drink and told him our next commitment was a nap then dinner at 6. He assured us we would be back to the hotel in time for a nice nap. Lunch was leisurely, but not slow by normal standards. I had a nice salad, and very upscale fish and chips. Jay had a pate followed by a pasta. It was excellent.
Interestingly there was no lamb on the menu (or mutton.)
That’s great art. Did you buy T-shirts?ReplyDelete
I didn't check to see if they have themDelete
I would have assumed a lamb-centric menu, but then I noticed the lamb on the sign had a crown, so, you know, royalty.ReplyDelete
The King and Queen of our worldDelete
No lamb or mutton? How dare they have a sheep as a logo!ReplyDelete
The US lacks lambDelete
Makes sense to me, you would never eat a lamb with crown on its head. Those fish and chips sound good to me.ReplyDelete
Was tasty, on a bed of mint mushy peasDelete
I love Hudson Yards and remember seeing that place. Alas....i don't eat lamb but at Easter. Love it...but won't eat it but the one time of year. I made a love roast for Easter.ReplyDelete
Stephen's mother Peggy told me how to make a delightful Yorkshire Stew (lamb)Delete
I too often want to know/ask the waiter how did the owners come up with this place? There is always a storyReplyDelete
I can imagineDelete
