Tartine Cafe, West Village

After a failed attempt to visit the Frying Pan for drinks, we wandered along the High Line to find a good spot for dinner. Chang suggested Tartine, an adorable French bistro in the heart of West Village, that was somehow able to seat our table of 6 immediately. Bonus: this place is true BYOB with no corkage fee!

Wild Mushroom Strudel ($11) with celery root remoulade and porcini vinaigrette. Lovely presentation, very tasty. The celery root remoulade was light and refreshing. Picked this over the onion tart, and it did not disappoint. Tartine - Wild Mushroom StrudelHomemade potato gnocchi ($9) with brussel sprout leaves and smoked mozzarella. Tartine - Potato GnocchiThe gnocchi was so soft… it just melts in your mouth. 3/4 of my gnocchi had a light, golden color from pan searing, while the other 1/4, unfortunately, was burnt. Delicious, but very rich dish. No idea how anyone could eat the full size in one sitting.

John also got the potato gnocchi, as well as the french onion soup ($7). The soup was topped with so much ooey gooey cheese! Tartine - Potato Gnocchi, French Onion SoupI didn’t order dessert, but grabbed a photo of Ken’s apple tarte tatin. Pretty, isn’t it? Tartine - Apple Tarte Tatin

    I really like that BYOB-concept, -I’ll try that next time I’m in USA:) The food looks tasty, but I would also have loved to read about Frying Pan. Are they closed now for this year?

      Hmm, I believe the Frying Pan is still open for a few more weeks. I might need to squeeze in a visit before the season is over! :)
