Restaurant Week Lunch: Craftbar

January 27, 2010

1st Course: Fried Pecorino Stuffed Risotto Balls.

I was VERY excited to go to Craftbar, as I've got a bit of a crush on Tom Colicchio & I'm a big fan of 'wichcraft. Well, 1st course did NOT dissappoint!

The "balls" were the perfect combination of texture with a crispy fried exterior with just a casual flirtation of saltiness and spice, followed with firm, well cooked risotto, & a decadent warm creamy pecorino center. The marinara sauce surrounding them had just a hint of heat to it but it didn't overpower the dish.

Incidentally, Craftbar had one of the largest Restaurant Week menues I've ever seen. There were so many choices!
