Cochon 555 for some piggie oink-oink-into-my-belly action. Except it was gorgeous out and one of us is super-preggo, leading both of us to be later than late and missing out on some good eats.
By the time we arrived, Cafe Boulud and Gavin Kaysen were long cleaned out. Always excited to get some spicy food, we loitered way too long at Fatty 'Cue while Adam Kaye and Blue Hill at Stone Barns were serving up their last bits. Yes, we only got to taste three of the five there, but that was more than enough for us.
Fatty 'Cue's was by far the spiciest: chunks of pig in a red lobster curry, with a slice of bread for soaking. Both of us experienced mouth en fuego, and still went back for seconds, and okay, maybe thirds too.
Del Posto served up a 1000-layer cold lasagna with hot sauce. As lovers of any food on a stick, we loved this, lasagna on a stick. Even more because it had 50 layers of pig.
Hearth were running low, only having their chocolate ravioli stuffed with porcine goodness. You could leave the chocolate, I'll take the pig.
