Boulton & Watt is a comfortable, unpretentious restaurant on Avenue A, where the above desserts gave my life some American-classic zing last night.
A chocolate souffle that was light in its loafers.
And a giant chocolate chip in a skillet, which you drenched in milk for extra effect. I normally am not big on cookies and milk–they remind me of some childhood I never had–but I found myself loving it, and then guzzling the milk separately too. Maybe I crave the calcium!
Also delightful were what started the meal–little jars of pickled mushrooms, pineapples, cantaloupe, and beets. A taste sensation.
And my “day boat” cod was nice too, with tartar sauce and a mountain of fries.
If restaurants have to replace rock clubs, at least let’s make them cool like this one.
Next time: Short rib and bone marrow toast!
