Ristoro del Cinghiale NYC

We had a lovely dinner with friend las night everything was great except the mains. :: at Ristoro del Cinghiale

The starters and bread were really amazing and had high hopes for the steak and ribs, Unforutnatly we received two orders of each. Round one was overcooked and round two was raw. The ribs were actually not eatable so tough you could even cut them. The strip side of the steak was tasteless. We did even try on round two because we were afraid. Manager was very nice about the problem because it was obvious. Hopefully they’ll do something about the grill person.

Tocqueville NYC

We had a great dinner with friends at Tocqueville. The Truffled Grits with an egg was outstanding !! Mushroom risotto was rich and creamy. I hear the fish was perfectly executed. The Short ribs were as tender as butter and tasted great. Deserts also outstanding. Wine list was large and focused towards the higher price points however there were some nice choices at reasonable prices. Corkage at 55 dollars a bottle is also an option with most NYC restaurants charging a 4X markup on wine bringing your own favorites is a good option. Service was friendly but could have used a bit more polishing. Food 9/10 Service 8.5/10 and value 8.5/10.
