After my recent trip to New Orleans, I was excited to come back home to NYC and explore restaurants with NOLA influences and see how they compare. My first find worth writing home about is 33 Greenwich. The interior certainly pays homage to the Jazzy New Orleans scene with its angular styled portrait mural on one wall, a long bar, and sphere hanging lights.
What a great Sunday afternoon. My friend, hubby, puppy and I kicked back at one of their outdoor tables and took in the West Village weekend vibes. Together, explored and ordered a bunch of dishes from all over chef Anne Thornton's menu to share so we could each have a little of everything. I want to say it's because I wanted to thoroughly report back to you all but it was more because the menu had such a variety of items that we were all excited to try. And, so, we did. Starting with the rich, gooey, sticky sweet Praline Cinnamon Rolls, I knew we were in for a delicious meal. Nothing disappointed. Their Muffaletta Board is awesome to have sitting on the table to share throughout brunch. The Fried Chicken with Beignets was for sure a crowd pleaser—it was served with a honey pepper butter that I'd eat off of nearly anything. No seriously, name it. A lamp post. Yes. Oh man, it was incredible! Even the Fruit And Granola was getting praise, well, from just me because I for sure hoarded it, ate it all, and then chose to talk about how weird it felt to want to rave about a yogurt cup.
I had so much fun seeing these playful New York-ized taked on New Orleans eats. Can't wait to hear what you think,
