We stopped in to ONE.Midtown Kitchen the other night after an event – the hubby and I were the proverbial all dressed up with nowhere to go, so we thought, where can we go for a glass of wine and a small bite? We decided on ONE.Midtown Kitchen and found we had chosen wisely.
If you’ve never been to ONE.Midtown Kitchen, here are a few of the highlights (at least, in my opinion) – first, the wine list, which consists of small boutique wines and is always changing. Wines are presented in four price “categories” (for lack of a better word) and each category has four options: half-glass, glass, bottle, and (call your designated driver!) bottomless. Imagine my delight when I found a Côtes du Rhône (my favorite) on the list – score!
Second, ONE.Midtown Kitchen is committed to using sustainable, local products, which is a trend that one can get onboard with. I’m a big fan of supporting local business and local economy and love to find businesses that make that effort.
Third, they create their own artisan products, including their own house-cured meats, which is what we munched on and thoroughly enjoyed (pictured – with the artisan cheese platter). My favorite was the Chocolate Jalapeño Pork Salami; my hubby’s fave was the Spanish Chorizo with Smoked Paprika and Oregano. The house-cured meats are served with a Blue Cheese Walnut Biscotti that is unlike anything I’ve ever had. Paired with the cheeses, the house-cured meats were a perfect late-night nosh. The cheese plate is served with a Compressed Carrot Cake that is enough like dessert to render actual dessert unnecessary and a fantastic little wedge of Passion Fruit Mostarda.
Now, the menu has any number of other delicious dishes on it that I have yet to try, but I was pleased enough on this visit to warrant future visits with a larger appetite in tow. A few dishes I’m looking forward to trying: English Pea & Brown Butter Tortellini; Wood Grilled hanger Steak; Crispy Fiddlehead Ferns; and Wood Oven Roasted Maine Mussels. Thank goodness for many eating-out days in the future!
