To kick off my birthday weekend Mr. T and I began with dinner at the Musket Room. This New Zealand restaurant down in SOHO gives off a cozy rustic vibe. It feels like an old farmhouse with the delicious smell of wood from the oven warming the front entrance as you enter. We began with a few of their specialty cocktails; the Elizabeth Street Mara with cucumber, basil and black lime for Mr. T and a frothy Lady Rutherford for me with cachaca, brazil nut and toasted coconut orgeat.
The Musket Room offers three menus; a six course tasting, a ten course chefs tasting and an a la carte. We decided to do the $75 six course with two additional add-on's not listed on either of the tasting menus.
