UN Grill is on the sidewalk?

reserve cut is a couple blocks away they also have some outdoor seating, both are excellent options. i just went to doma yesterday (i can walk there) and reminded myself how much better the NY places are, for about the same (RC) or lower (WSG) cost...

Where's Barnea?
Though IME it makes a big difference if Josh is the chef that night.
Was there not too long ago, asked specifically if Josh is here tonight to which they replied he was. And food was literally inedible, we couldn't finish any dish.

It's not a question of if he's there as he owns the plane. The question is if he's the chef that night.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Am I the only one that doesn't get the hype about reserve cut?
Not talking about ambiance, it's one of the nicest kosher restaurants in the world

I was there many times since they first opened up, and I was never wowed by reserve cut

Feel the same way. I prefer WSG over RC.

I'm a homer (a family member is involved in WSG) and i love the place, but Reserve Cut is pretty wonderful too. the quality of the professionally aged steak/fresh sushi etc of those two blow away most kosher places (other than mikes, perhaps barnea, never been).

Barnea shows it's not a one-hit wonder, continues to impress and retain perhaps it's top spot in kosher food scene

DRINKS:


-- Hard Lemonade

-- Smoked Sour: bourbon infused chamomile, fresh lemon juice, cane syrup, apple-wood smoke, bitters

-- Shooting Stars: vodka, vanilla syrup, passion fruit, fresh lemon juice, gold flake champagne shot







APPS:

-- FISH TACOS: market fish, slaw, pickled onion, jalapeńo, creole aļoli, 30

-- SHORT RIB GNOCCHI: sweet potato, english pea, mushroom, spinach, demi-glace, 42

-- LAMB RIBLETS: pistachio, fennel, honey, aleppo, 35

-- CRISPY ARTICHOKE: herb bread crumbs, cashew parmesan, remoulade, 22

-- PATATAS BRAVAS: roasted fingerling, potato croquettes, creole aļoli, 17




MAINS:

-- FILET DE BOEUF: 16oz, 28-day dry aged delmonico, pomme purée, duxelle tomato, braised pearl onion, bordelaise, 72

-- PEPPER CRUSTED OYSTER STEAK: creamed spinach, chimichurri, braised pearl onion, crispy shallot, 68







DESSERTS:

-- Special

-- Apple Cranberry Galette: turbinado crumble, pecan ice cream, bourbon maple glaze






Notes:

--Apps, drinks, mains were all excellent.
--The shooting star (3rd pic) was one of the best alcoholic drinks I've ever had.
--Prices have absolutely gone up since COVID (or perhaps earlier); $9 (!) for each piece of lamb riblet? $42 (!) for gnocchi?
--To be fair, the desserts this time were... underwhelming IMHO, but Mrs. AJK disagreed so dunno.

Bottom line, if you're not afraid of the prices, Barnea ranks among the very top of the kosher restaurant food scene.

(And to foreclose this issue in advance, while Josh came out to thank us in a chef uniform, I do not know if he was working the line when we went.)

Looks amazing, though desserts do look meh.
I miss the olive oil cake we had! Told him that?

I do, too.

Should have, but didn't. Felt awkward somehow, despite the amount of $$ we spent. Missed opportunity, I suppose.
