My aunt and uncle were recently visiting the city, so it was up to us New Yorkers to show them a good time! Anton, my cousin Blair, and I made dinner reservations at Print, a farm-to-table restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen.
While we looked over the menu, we snacked on bread, which came with butter, and a delicious blue-cheese spread that was gone quickly.
I had heard wonderful things about the Grilled Octopus, so we ordered that as a starter. It is served with chick peas, roasted tomatoes, shallots, herb puree, lemon and pimenton oil. It was delicious, and cooked perfectly.
The manager was kind enough to send over a bonus appetizer, the Goat Cheese Gnocchi. The gnocchi is mixed with pancetta, spring garlic, english peas, asparagus, ramps, pea greens, sage and parmesan.
For his main course, my uncle ordered the Grilled Red Snapper with parsley potatoes, grilled shiitake mushrooms, baby broccoli rabe and a lemon-olive salsa.
Blair, who confessed that cooked fish creeps him out, selected the Roasted Chicken Breast with sweet potatoes, rosemary, and sautéed seasonal vegetables in a thyme au jus.
Anton and I both chose the Fettuccine with braised lamb, asparagus, spinach, basil, spring garlic and parmesan. I didn’t care for the dish, but he enjoyed his… and the rest of mine!
For her main course, my aunt ordered the Chorizo-Ricotta Ravioli with sautéed mushrooms, ramps, fiddleheads, roasted baby carrots and parmesan.
Then it was time for cappuccino and dessert!
We shared the Chocolate Hazelnut Torte which is served with vanilla ice cream.
We also sampled the Banana Pudding Charlotte covered in a rum toffee sauce and accompanied by espresso ice cream.
The dessert is topped with a crazy nest of sugar. It’s like cotton candy for adults!
After dining at Print, you can head upstairs to its rooftop bar, The Press Lounge. I was excited to show everyone the views, until we found out that the lounge was closed for a private event! Thanks a lot CBS! Guess we’ll just have to take our family picture in the lobby!
Print is a solid choice when picking a Hell’s Kitchen restaurant. You can find more information, and make a reservation, here.
Come back and visit us soon Aunt and Uncle!
