I returned to Gravy, the Southern restaurant in the flatiron district to sample their new chef’s — Reagan Angelle (Palm Restaurant, NYC; Commander’s Palace, New Orleans; Maison Lacour, Baton Rouge) cooking.
The crispy crawfish fritters ($11) were disappointing — the consistency of the filling was mushy with little flavor of the succulent seafood. The flavor of the chicken liver pate and tomato relish was delicious on the NOLA Waffles ($10) appetizer, but the soggy waffle just didn’t work. Would be a great dish if they substituted some interesting cracker. The go-to appetizer is the homemade and smoked andouille served with a celery root slaw ($12); be sure to ask for some mustard!
The warm North Carolina black seabass came atop chilled veggies. A nice presentation, but it cried out for seasoning ($26). Try instead the moist and tasty buttermilk fried chicken with smashed potatoes and cole slaw ($22).
The Southern pecan pie ($8) was loaded with nuts, but missing the binding. After one forkful, the nut “filling” collapsed over the crisp crust.
