Pescada New York – Classy Ambience, Delicious Food

This past Tuesday, March 1st, Zalman Slowix – a long time associate of mine – and I went to Pescada New York (509 Avenue P; Brooklyn, NY11223 – Telephone: 347.702.5711); we’d heard enough about it and wanted to try it.

The decor was subdued but quietly elegant, a perfect frame for the various dishes our eyes and palates were about to enjoy. I started the meal with Potato Cheese Balls

…they came as a fried medley of potatoes, and cheese served on a smoked eggplant yogurt sauce.

Zalman opted for the Pumpkin Carpaccio with a bed of thinly sliced butternut squash covered with crusted pistachios, shredded feta cheese, pomegranate seeds, olive oil, sea salt, topped with micro greens. Both, Zalman and I found our selections tasty and fitting appetizers for the delights to follow.

Next, we split a Chef’s Special Salad

Zalman segued with the Soup du Jour

Actually there were two soups, a Butternut Squash Soup, and Vegetable Soup with house croutons in the three container dish.

I, meanwhile, had their Classic Fettuccine Alfredo

Zalman followed his soups with a Miso Glazed Sea Bass, a grilled fillet of sea bass with a light coating of the Chef’s Special Miso Sauce. Judging by his face it was obviously cooked to perfection!

I went for the Grilled Tuna…

Whereas my associate had enough, I couldn’t resist a Double Chocolate Dessert…

…which consisted of Belgian Chocolate, a thin layer of crunchy sweet crumbs topped with a layer of White Chocolate with sides of Vanilla Ice Cream and a sliced Strawberry. I washed it all down with a…

Nana Smoothie, it’s minty and citrusy flavours, a perfect companion for a superb meal. Zalman had their house red, a Barkan Classic Cabernet Sauvignon 2014.

Chef Lior showed a unique mastery and understanding of the balance of flavors in every dish we tasted coupled with an artist’s conception of colors and shapes. I will definitely be back!
