Rotisserie Georgette

I recently had dinner at Rotisserie Georgette. Georgette focuses on traditional French dishes and executes each with near perfection and the best possible ingredients available.
Watermelon Salad
The first dish I had was the Chilled Watermelon Salad. The cubes of red and yellow watermelon rest on a bed of Lemon Ricotta and are topped with a delicate amount of sweet and sour balsamic vinegar. Although the salad seems simple, the blend of the juices from the watermelon and the other flavors culminate in one of the best salads I have ever had.
Chicken
Next, I tried the roasted chicken, the specialty of Rotisserie Georgette. I had the “Grand Mere,” which came with a thin red-wine based sauce that had some salty chopped up pieces of bacon.
The reason I believe that the roasted chicken is so good is the thin, not-oily skin. The skin holds flavors from the roasting and is truly something that stands out. After cutting through the skin, the chicken is incredibly moist, and with a bit of the sauce, has a very good salty, slightly garlic flavor.
Chocolate Souffle with truffles

Finally, I tried the dessert. I really enjoyed the chocolate souffle. Although it is small, it seems to be just enough as it also comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and three rich chocolate truffles. The souffle itself is very light and moist, yet still the right consistency. With some of the creamiest vanilla ice cream (made in-house), the dessert is truly fantastic. After finishing the souffle, I inhaled the small yet dense chocolate truffles. The truffles are a highlight of the dish, and I believe the best way to end a perfect meal.

Churro Heaven at Boqueria UES

I stopped by Boqueria on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and had some of the freshest, chocolate-filled mini churros.

They are fried beautifully to have an ideal, golden-brown exterior. Filled to the brim with sweet, thick nutella, the churros are then topped with some powdered sugar.

There is something especially tasty about the dough they use in their churros– almost like pulling apart a delicate croissant, the churro flakes.

Order the Churros Rellenos de Nutella. Delicious!
