Best Use of Egg New York 2011 - Brushstroke



30 Hudson St.

New York, NY 10013


Map & Details>>

Getting the full kaiseki experience at David Bouley's new Japanese restaurant, Brushstroke, will unquestionably put a dent in your wallet. (Set menus run $85 and $135.) But the bar room offers à la carte dining at a slightly more affordable price. One of the best options is the crab and truffle chawan-mushi. The steamed egg custard, flavored with soy sauce and mirin, comes in a vessel topped with a truffle-flecked dashi and studded with chunks of Dungeness crab. The silky smooth custard is the type of comforting dish you'd want to eat when you get your wisdom teeth yanked out. Far tastier than a handful of Vicodin, too. 30 Hudson Street, 212-791-3771, (10013)
