What I love about my real job is that it affords me the luxury of living in one of my favorite cities and visiting my all-time favorite city, New York. Not to mention the fact that some of my co-workers are serious foodies and give me great suggestions of new places to try like Po (thanks Megan!). Po is a quaint little place in the heart, and I mean heart, of the West Village. Tucked away on the adorable Cornelia street this tiny eatery boasts fresh Italian cuisine. According to their website most of their ingredients are hand delivered to the restaurant from the surrounding shops. With such greats as Murray's Cheese, Amy's Bread etc. near by, you know you are in for a treat.
I was meeting my two dear friends and serious foodies, Maggie and Brad. Before trying out a new restaurant I always feel a tinge of pressure - what if it's not good? Do I pretend I hate it so I don't look like a fool or take it down in flames with me? Lucky for me this was not a problem at Po.
After several minutes of debate we all decided on our main courses. All three of us opted for something different:
- Renee: Pappardelle with duck confit ragu
- Maggie: Porcini Crusted Cod, borlotti beans, kale and Sweet red pepper vinaigrette
- Brad: Braised Short Rib soft polenta and sweet carrots
