New York is ridiculously overwhelming with foodie options that literally cater to a whole host of tastes.
Walking down any street in Midtown, is likely to direct you to a whole-in-the-wall eatery, a food cart, fancy restaurant, gluten-free dining experience or whatever new gastronomical experience exists.
I woke up late during fashion week, and visited a famed brunch spot, which rests right in the path of Broadway theater-goers. Today’s foodie escapade is to, Sadelle’s.
”Sadelle’s is a New York bakery and restaurant from Major Food Group located in the heart of SoHo…Sadelle’s features quintessential appetizing selections like sliced-to-order salmon and sturgeon, chopped salads, and other New York classics. Every night, Sadelle’s transforms from a bakery into a fantastical brasserie that is illuminated solely by candlelight. Sadelle’s dinner menu emphasizes fish preparations, along with other classic dishes and freshly baked bread. The restaurant also specializes in traditional Russian caviar and vodka service.”
The Freddy Salad from Sadelle’s includes shrimp, heart of palm, avocado, radish, crispy shallots, and a salad dressing of my choosing.
Honestly, the shrimp needs to be warmed up(and maybe seasoned with a handful of eastern spices) and then commended for how much it works to hold up this dish already.
This is a ‘cold’ dish.
It doesn’t want to interact with you beyond curbing your hunger.
Sadelle’s made up for the salad (which I also think I might be at fault for, for critiquing too harshly considering how predispositioned I am to spicy & rich food), with a Double Cheeseburger Sandwich.
Where they likely succeed in gifting overrated and overpriced dining experiences – particularly to the brunch/lunch seeking Broadway attendees – the failure to provide riveting taste dimension in a salad recommended as their signature best, is what’s most disappointing,
The service is wonderfully efficient, save for the faux pas of not remembering to pose necessary questions accompanying an order, such as tea.
The outfits at this spot, are cute though…as are some of the waiters.
Come here for an alcoholic lunch, and savor the factory rustic interior design, while snuggled close to a stranger sitting nigh alongside the cramped tables.
