You may remember from the Spring that when Restaurant Week comes to town, I try to take advantage. I’m lucky enough to have a foodie friend who is always down to play Restaurant Week with me! We decided to do lunch at Sushi Samba 7 in the West Village this time around. It’s only twice a year you can get a 3-course meal, specifically designed to highlight the chef’s talents, for $24.
My date opted to get the heirloom tomato salad, which she ate with chopsticks, like a boss:
I was smart enough to order an appetizer I could eat with my hands, short rib lettuce cups with red onion and cilantro, yeah:
For our main courses, we both chose the sushi plate, which was a chef’s selection of sushi along with a special tempura roll with a yummy wasabi mayo dipping sauce:
The dessert section of this menu is what made me want to come here. I just had to try this concoction, called the “Samba Split”:
My date ordered this mocha shake of sorts, which I tasted, and it was terrific, too:
We were lucky enough to pick a beautifully sunshiny day for this fanciful adventure. We sat outside and relished being ladies who lunch.
