Park Avenue Summer -- American New Cuisine in Midtown East
Met up with a friend who shared my enthusiasm for dinning out for lunch at Park Avenue Summer.
A restaurant that changes its' theme & menu every season.
This is the summer decor.
The assorted bread basket was enticing.
I had to stop myself from finishing the basket before appetizers arrived.
(You can't go wrong with this dish, yum yum yum....)
(Light and refreshing. SO good!)
Free Ranged Chicken with Peaches & Basil.
(It is my own fault for ordering this dish.
Chicken is boring, and the sweet peach sauce just did not do it for me.)
Organic Scottish Salmon with Crispy Taro & Cucumber Salad
(Amazingly delicious! The salmon was crispy outside and moist inside. It was very flavorful.)
Goat Cheese Mousse in Phyllo,Honeyed Raspberries
(The goat cheese mousse was creamy and light. It was wrapped in sweet and flaky phyllo.
Great option for someone who does not like heavy, rich, decadent dessert.)
Chilled Banana Parfait with Chocolate Crumbs & Banana Butterscotch Puree
(It's an orgy in your mouth. Need to say more?)
