It’s NYC Restaurant Week at Wall & Water

It’s NYC Restaurant Week again—a great excuse to put on my roomy pants and head over to one of my favorite Lower Manhattan eateries!

This summer, my colleagues and I decided to pay a visit to Wall & Water in the Andaz Hotel.

We first visited the restaurant when the hotel opened about a year and a half ago and were impressed by their delicious Stone Fruit Salad.  The caramelized fruit sprinkled with goat cheese and drizzled with maple syrup, lemon and nuts is unique, interesting and like nothing else I had ever tasted before.  Once I saw that they were offering it on their menu for restaurant week, the decision to experience it again was obvious.  Not to mention, they had a steak entrée and their signature flourless chocolate cake on the menu as well!

So off we went.  Our waiter, Chris, was terrific!  He was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable—everything you’d expect and more.  He started us off with a complementary organic artichoke for the table with a delicious dipping sauce that wasn’t even part of the menu.

We then all shared and split our choices with each other.  All the fresh ingredients are produced locally—in fact, you might want to check out their farmers market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  The open kitchen design and the casual sleek décor with couches and pillows make it seem like you are dining in a friend’s stylish apartment instead of a hotel restaurant.

Chef Maximo Lopez May has even held monthly cooking classes, so if I really wanted to learn how to make his delicious food, I could.  But for only $24.07 and no need to get my hands dirty, I think I’ll stick with the restaurant week menu for now!
