COOKSHOP

Last night I went for dinner with Neal, Danielle, the director of "Severance" and our totally awesome publicist Steve.
We went to Cookshop on 10th Ave. It was amazing. I had read a review that said not to miss the hominy, and it was completely addicting. It was spicy and crunchy, and a lot like popcorn without being dry. We also tried the duck taquitos. My take on Mexican food is that it's one of those things you can try to class up, but the classy version will never be as good as the low-brow version, so really, you have to ask yourself, a $7 duck taquito? Isn't that just a waste of time? Shouldn't you spend your time trying to class up other things, like hominy?
Then I had the beet and ricotta salad and it was delicious. There were orange sections and mint leaves.
For my entree I had the cod. It was perfectly done and came atop a mustard vinaigrette and asparagus. I stole a bit of the director's steak, which I have to say was a little bit like heaven.
Even though I know that the last thing I need in this world is dessert, I still ordered the chocolate cake, the menu said something about espresso and salted caramel, but it was right around then that I slipped into my chocolate coma. It was delicious and moist and the frosting wasn't too sweet and had just a hint of the salted caramel.
It was delish, but I seriously need to diet now. Not that I didn't before, but I think this was the kicker.
