Here’s one of my last post about food in NY. In the East Village I paid a visit to JLOB where chef Brendan Mc Hale has internalized the degustation dish principle that has been taken over by, well… Degustation, the other restaurant of Jack Lamb’s small East Village empire.
In a tiny kitchen, barely bigger than your dorm room but equipped with induction hot plates and a sous-vide cooker, Chef Brendan offers various creations of his repertoire in small portions, allowing diners to get a good impression at value for money.
And I can only confirm that one gets a good level of fine dining and lots of creativity at an unbeatable price. It is one of the restaurants that should be on everyone’s list. (btw, my last visit in 2008 is documented here)
Here are the pcitures of my dinner. Unfortunately I didn’t take any notes, thus I’m missing the exact descriptions. So I decided to make it a food porn series.
