Spitzer’s Corner — NYC Review

In Uncategorized on September 16, 2010 at 3:27 pm

I was told about Spitzer’s Corner while at another restaurant in close proximity to the gastropub/bar itself. Located in the Lower East Side, Spitzer’s provides not only a fun, rowdy bar environment but it also has surprisingly amazing food.

One of my favorite hidden up-and-coming foodie site, Immaculate Infatuation, also raved about the restaurant, meaning, I had to try it. Boy was I glad I did….

Jenina, one of my best friend’s who originally told me about the joint, skipped the apps but had the signature Truffle Mac and Cheese for dinner… I can’t explain how different this specific Truffle Mac was — while extremely decadent it was well worth every bite. Made with Parmegiano Reggiano, White Cheddar, Fontina, Truffles, Panko, Rosemary and Thyme —  I highly suggest it if you have only one opportunity to go to the restaurant.

I was looking at getting the Seafood Sausage to start, which consisted of chunks of Lobster, Scallops, Shrimp, Monkfish, White Wine-Butter Sauce and Chili Oil? I went with a little lighter appetizer — I got the Grilled Vegetable Salad — Portobello Mushrooms, Artichokes, Squash, Fennel, Red Bell Pepper, Queso Fresco and Vincotto Sauce.

For my entree, I got the Seafood Lasagna — I HAD TO. I’ve never seen it on a menu, AKA, that was that — needed to be done. Good decision it was, let me tell you. It was a re make of the usual layered pasta dish — it was an open faced pasta dish with Pan Seared Scallops, Tiger Shrimp, Diced Local Tomatoes, Baby Octopus, Basil, Organic Zucchini served open-faced atop hand rolled Parsley Lasagna. DELICIOUS.

    I freakin’ love Spitzers. I went there with 15 friends one time and we took over a whole table. The beer list is AMAZING! Nice review, I dig. Hope all is well…
