Ready for some Ratatouille-style-fireworks-in-my-mouth last night when I sat down at Ink after walking past the open kitchen. The scent of hunger filled elation in the air. I quickly picked up the menu. My first thoughts "Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it, Oh my god..." this place cares about quality.
I glanced up at the waiter who offered me a choice of flat or sparkling, on the house... I can't recall the last time I didn't have to pay for bubbles and I liked it. Then I spot none other than Man vs Food' host Adam Richman seated right across from me. Evidence! Evidence that Ink will live up to my heaping expectations.
We ordered everything. The menu has 15 items and the portions are small so it was the obvious choice. I loved it. All of it. The standouts are the lamb neck, the beef tartare, the jidori chicken and waffles, the berkshire pork and the charred avocado. And the squid ink spaghetti. Ok, basically the entire menu for crying out loud!
