One if by Land, Two if by Sea

I’m really excited to be dining at One if By Land, Two if by Sea for the very first time! I have heard so much about this timeless New York staple and know that it is better than ever now that the Chef Colt Taylor is the executive chef. I had the pleasure of meeting and sampling Chef Colt’s delicious food at the James Beard House over the summer and at From Farm To Tray, a sustainable food benefit for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen back in May. I was thrilled that Chef Colt was there tonight! We enjoyed a variety of incredible dishes, of which my favorites were the hamachi crudo, country pate, lobster bisque, and Loch Duarte salmon (with super crispy skin :)). What an incredible feast! And wasn’t over just yet. We must have sampled every dessert on the menu, all of which were creative and amazing. An enormous thank you to Chef Colt for such a magnificent meal!
