Ai Fiori

On a recent Sunday night, I had the opportunity to visit Ai Fiori.  Over the next six months or so, I am trying to only visit Michelin starred restaurants if I go out to eat.  Ai Fiori is a one-starred restaurant, and in short, it was excellent.  Easily one of the better one-star restaurants in NYC.  My meal was as follows:

Animelle – crispy sweetbreads, pomme purée, truffle vinaigrette, pancetta

Trofie Nero – ligurian crustacean ragu, seppia, scallops, spiced mollica

Vitello – amish veal chop “au four,” saltimbocca, new potatoes

Panna Cotta – balsamic crema, blood orange, marcona almond, lemon sorbetto
