On MLK Day, my friend Leora and I took advantage of the holiday to hit ABC Kitchen for lunch. The farm-to-table restaurant north of Union Square won the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant in 2011.
I'd planned to do the prix fixe, but Leora and I were both uninspired by the offerings, so we ordered from the regular lunch menu.
First course: roasted kabocha squash toast with ricotta and apple cider vinegar. One of the best things I've eaten this year! Mark Bittman of the NYT posted a Thanksgiving video with Jean Georges showing how to make it. Can't wait to try it myself.
And you can make it yourself! What do y'all think the chances are of finding salted caramel ice cream at the Quincy Winn Dixie?
