The House

I wondered how I could not have noticed a free-standing carriage house on a New York City street that I’ve walked on more times than I could count. But it was true, I IMG_5833_3discovered when I met a couple friends for a nibble at The House, a restored 1854 carriage house with three floors for dining.

We sat in the parlor by the lit fireplace on a cold winter’s night sipping some Grüner Veltliner, Steinberg 2008 Fritsch, Wagram ($45) while nibbling some of their tasty offerings. These included a Trio of Crostini ($15) two pieces each IMG_5836_3of marinated tuna belly and white bean, eggplant pinenut and raisin ad mortadella pate with Sicilian pistachios; and black olive hummus, tzatziki and avocado puree ($16) accompanied by warm  pressed flatbread.

All of us being Brussels sprouts lovers ordered a side of their yummy version with heritage bacon lardons ($6).

Note to self: return to try their dining room!
