Degustation — New York City (7/2013)



I read about Degustation a few months ago, and for a trip to New York, I needed a late dinner spot for my flight arrival date.  The website described an appealing, informal place specializing in Spanish tapas-style cooking.  It’s not really a molecular cuisine restaurant (although there was foam on one dish).  But I liked the food and the experience, so I wanted to write it up anyway for the collection.  I made a reservation for 9:30 pm.  The restaurant is small, with only seating for about 20 at a counter surrounding the kitchen area.

 My seat was not free when my reservation time came.  However, they offered me a glass of wine while I sat and waited for about 10 minutes.  As the menu shows, the format is all small plates.  On the flip side of the menu was an extensive wine list.  They offer a 7-course tasting menu which was described as a collection of the chef’s daily creations.  A few were from the a la carte menu.
