Dinner at Má Pêche

Over Labor Day weekend, J’s brother came into NYC for a visit. We went into the city to go out to dinner. The criteria for dinner was something J’s brother couldn’t get where he lives. Má Pêche, a restaurant in the Momofuku family by David Chang was the lucky winner. The Má Pêche experience is includes dim sum dishes coming around on carts to compliment the chefs specials of the day. I took photos during the meal, and to go with the restaurants name, all the photos came out very peachy-orange. While these photos do not do the meal justice, we had an amazing time and really enjoyed all the dishes we had.

We started off the meal at the bar with wine and cocktails. My lemon peel looks like lips.

We were seated at a long communal table. We lucked out and got seated at the end. The plus of a party of three. The family at the end had a very tired diner.

We started off with pork buns with pickled cucumbers. I could have had three or four of these.

One of the best things we had was this buttered corn. It was served with grains, little pumpernickel croutons, and fresh horseradish.

Here are a couple things off of the dim sum cart. Pickled veggies and a crab avocado dip.

Here is a broccoli salad with pine nuts and a creamy dressing.

We had cod fritters, which we thought would need a sauce. But they were so flavorful and had a good amount of heat, they were perfect.

This little crock was filled with rice fried in duck fat topped with lobster. As far as I’m concerned all rice should be cooked in duck fat, always.

This was another one of the chef’s specials. Grilled short rib, grilled lettuce, onion, pickled cucumber, and a fried egg.

This was also a favorite of the table and another chef special. Smoked lamb ribs, peach, shishito peppers, mustard greens, and an excelent sauce. The meat fell right off the bones, it was cooked to perfection.

Now onto dessert. They came around with a cart of pies, cookies, and truffles. The slice of pie we got is called crack pie. And oh my goodness it was so rich and decadent, it was good three of us were sharing it.

We also got a swirl of both flavors of soft serve they offered with cornflake crunch. The flavors (cereal milk, blueberries and cream) really tasted as I expected. Having soft serve that tastes like the milk in the bottom of a bowl of cornflakes was awesome.

We all became members of the clean plate club.

It was an amazing meal, and I recommend Má Pêche to anyone.
