JLOB / Jack’s Luxury Oyster Bar, New York

627

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.

Degustation, New York

Degustation is the most recent of Jack Lamb’s East Village ventures and is located just next to Jewel Bako, his Japanese restaurant (and is only a stone’s throw away from JLOB, his third restaurant). As with JLOB, the idea at Degustation is to deliver fine dining in small tasting portions, permitting the diner to try many different creations at good value for money. Read the rest of this entry »

I ate up Momofuku Ssäm Bar!

Well, that’s obviously an exaggeration.

But during my stay in the city I at least had lunch or late lunch there 3 times and had quite a share of the menu. This adds up with all my previous visits at Ssäm Bar and Noodle Bar during my last trips. And I have to confess: I am still a fan of David Chang’s creative fusion food that is so full of sense. Unfortunately I’ve never been able to eat at Momofuku Ko, which is the fine dining restaurant. But for now here’s what I ate at Ssäm bar:

intimate ambiance at JLOB

When I was in NY in November I met fellow food blogger Steve for a nice dinner at Tailor’s. Since I brought my friend Jeff and Steve brought his friends Toby and Brendan we were quite a nice round of food enthusiastic diners that evening. During this evening which ended in a bar in the West Village, we found out that Brendan is a young chef holding the reins at Jack’s Luxury Oyster Bar – a restaurant in the East Village.

Momofuku-Land

Much more than Orlando’s Disneyland, I love New York’s Momofuku-land. As a matter of fact, rising chef David Chang has built up his small empire of restaurants in New York’s East Village and although I’ve only been to 2 of the 3 places opened, I became a big fan of his ideas. And I’m convinced that the remaining third restaurant which is the fine dining place Momofuku Ko wouldn’t disappoint me either since it should represent the continuation or the total refinement of his collected ideas. I hope I can make it there one day. On the other hand his 2 regular places are delicious enough and already transport Changs creativity!
