Rachel and I were in Midtown on the West Side tonight visiting a friend, so we decided to go local on his very strong reccomendation and eat at Market Cafe, an eclectic sort of regulars neighborhood bistro joint serving really top notch food at very reasonable prices.
Main Dining Room
Scallops over Brown Butter and Mashed Potatoes Appetizer. I could have eaten four or five of these scallops as a main dish and I would have been totally satisfied. By far my favorite dish of the evening but everything we had was really good.
Gnocchi Appetizer. Also a really good dish, if there was anything that we could complain about was that the sauce to gnocchi ratio was a bit out of whack. More gnocchi!
Arugula with Wild Mushrooms and Walnuts salad
Three Cheese Penne. An upscale Mac and Cheese, came out nice and bubbly. Not too overwhelming on the cheese flavor, it was nice to share.
Steak Frites, their signature hangar steak with French Fries and Pesto. An excellent dish and a great value.
We didn't get dessert, but from the desserts we saw coming out, in particular a really nice big slice of moist multi-layer chocolate cake, I'd say it would be defnitely worth it.
