In the 30 years since opening, Cornelia Street Cafe hasbeen home to some amazing New York City moments, but the delicious French-inspired fare more than stands up to the history of this storied spot. Chef Dan Latham prepares truly delectable cuisine at this renownedestablishment, where Suzanne Vega and Eve Ensler got their starts, and whereEugene McCarthy and William Kunstler treated audiences to their poetry.
Appetizers like Moroccan hummus is inspired with roasted red peppers, garlic, lemon juice, black olives and a pomegranate reduction; and Maine crab cakes are brought to life with cilantro red cabbage slaw and a chipotle tartar sauce. Entrees include innovative interpretations of classics, like magret of duck served alongside roasted garlic-rosemary potatoes, haricots verts and splashed with a raspberry balsamic sauce; and Cremini Mushroom Risotto enhanced with butternut squash, black truffle oil and shaved Parmesan.
