Another quickie of a post, but something's better than nothing, right? Caught a play on Broadway on Friday night (God of Carnage) and afterwards we decided to hit up No. 7, which I'd never gotten around to taking my girlfriend to. Since I quite enjoy a good restaurant and maintain that No. 7 is my favorite, it was quite rude of me to have never brought her, don't you think?
Needless to say, it didn't disappoint. After a couple of dirty martinis (they make some great ones), we sat down to a great meal. To start we had the fried broccoli with dill, grapefruit, and black beans. Much like the fried artichoke hearts (which I miss), the fried broccoli was subtle and interesting. Unlike the artichokes, the broccoli was *massive*. They had an Arctic char sashimi appetizer special that I almost ordered in addition, and I'm glad I didn't. It would have been too much.
For dinner, I had the grilled mahi mahi with lentils, bok choy, rhubarb, and artichoke dip. Liv had the pecan-crusted tofu. I loved the mahi mahi, though I felt the lentils and bok choy were a bit too salty. The fish was fantastic, though.
Liv loved the tofu, proclaiming it the best tofu she'd ever had. I concurred, but that's not saying much for me.
I also need to mention a great cocktail we ordered with dinner, the bourbon with honeysuckle and lemon bitters. Get it.
