Betony [lunch]

So happy to be back at Betony! I was thrilled to see lots of new dishes on the menu and couldn’t wait to try as many as possible. Our amuse bouche was a green tomato gazpacho with pumpernickel — a creative and refreshing start to a delicious lunch. The first course included the pig’s head terrine with mustard and salsa verde (one word: awesome) and asparagus velouté with green garlic and pumpernickel (smooth and velvety with a hint of tanginess). My entree was exquisite: poached tilefish with saffron and fennel. The fish was incredibly moist and tender — it literally melted in my mouth — and the broth was heavenly. I think I need a gallon of that to go, please. Sadly, we had to cut our lunch short due to time restrictions, but I will definitely be back soon for dinner and some of Eamon Rockey’s famous milk punch!
