Colicchio and Sons

I hadn’t been over to Colicchio and Sons since it had been reincarnated from Craftsteak years ago.  Mr T went a little overboard there last time ordering a ridiculous amount of Kobe Steak and we haven’t been back since.  I decided it was finlly time to check and out and dined solo at the bar.  The Tap Room offers a 3 course prix fix for $25 of which I started with the Kabocha Squash soup with Brussels Sprout, Nutmeg Crème Fraiche and Pumpkinseed Oil.

Talk about a velvety soup this was absolutely delicious with the dollop of crème fraiche on top and lots of toasty pumpkin seeds.  I could only eat about half because it was so thick I wouldn’t be able to eat my entrée the TC Burger with Drunk Onions and Pecorino.

I was really craving a burger and while this certainly hit the spot it definitely wasn’t my favorite.  The meat was cooked perfectly with lots of juice but the huge brioche bun seemed to engulf it and the drunk onions were way too sweet for my taste buds. Even the pecorino couldn’t cut the sweetness.  Onto dessert I went for something a little different than usual with the Coconut Crème Caramel with Coconut Almond Macaroon, Kiwi & Lychee Sorbets.

This was certainly a beautiful dessert and quite delicious as well.  I wasn’t sure I would like the sweet coconut and caramel with the cool fruity sorbets but it really worked.  Only the hard macaroon was a faliture but I cleared the plate of the rest.  The Tap Room has quite an eclectic list of beers and offers two flights options- of which I went for the Mighty Wheat- C&S/Highline Elevated Wheat, White Rascal, Winter Wheat.

For $25 C&Sons is a tasty and affordable meal on the outskirts of the Meatpacking district.  I would return again but probably forgoe the burger for another entrée.
