This Saturday was one of the warmest we've had in NYC so R and I walked through Central Park to the Upper West Side for brunch. After wandering for awhile and worrying we were going to end up eating bar food, we stumbled across Barney Greengrass. This 100-year-old store and restaurant serves a wide array of fish specialties: smoked sturgeon, gravlax, herring and anything else you can think of! Granted, this cash only restaurant is expensive for the average bear....but if you are looking for a special treat without a lot of pomp and circumstance - this is your place!We ordered the Smoked Fish Deluxe Platter for 2: Sturgeon, Nova Scotia Salmon, Kippered Salmon, Sable and Whitefish. Everything on the plate was delicious but I especially loved the smoked sturgeon. We ate the fish on bialys with cream cheese, yellow onion and tomato - yum yum yum!
We took home a few leftovers, which I mixed with cream cheese, red onion, celery and lemon juice for a tasty pre-dinner dip later in the weekend.
