Best Tasting Menus for $50 or Less
To get details on chef Hadley Schmitt's $24, three-course Sunday supper at this market-driven East Village spot, fans check the @northernspyfood Twitter feed after 4 p.m. The Sunday meals tend toward homey dishes like roast chicken and tomato salad. Every six weeks or so, Schmitt prepares a more ambitious, $50 themed menu; a vegetarian meal might feature a pear salad with both shaved and pureed celery root and roasted cauliflower with cider-braised cabbage. Recently, Northern Spy has launched nightly $50, five-course tastings with dishes like roasted lamb with Indian-spiced granola, and pear bombe stuffed with goat-cheese sorbet. northernspyfoodco.com.
