After moving to the big apple, I created a Google map with restaurants that I want to try so that when someone says, “Where shall we eat?” I look at the map and locate a place somewhat nearby where we are going. In this walking city, that restaurant could be a mile or so away!
That’s how we ended up at 33 Greenwich restaurant after seeing the Force of Nature, the current exhibit at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Seventh Avenue at 27 Street. The exhibit examines how the beauty of the natural world has inspired fashion designers for centuries. This one runs through November 18; admission is free.
The evening we dined at 33 Greenwich we learned they had recently introduced a new menu with their take on Southern foods. Our friendly waiter shared that two popular dishes remained on the new menu: the fried ($27) and the rotisserie ($25) chicken. We ordered — and shared — both along with a serving of fries ($6) and weren’t disappointed. Whipped potatoes and broccoli accompanied the roast chicken, cole slaw and potato salad the perfectly fried. Each contained half a chicken.
Not so the cheeseburger, unless you order it medium. One dining companion ordered medium rare without cheese – yet the burger was almost raw. I’d skip the burger, but would go back in a heartbeat for either moist chicken and suggest you do, too.
