Whenever Erika comes to visit me, I always end up trying new restaurants and eating a ton. She visited over the winter and we checked out a couple of places, including Dirty French, the new-ish restaurant from the guys that brought New York Torrisi, Carbone, and ZZ Clam (some of my favorite restaurants in New York!)

We had a pretty late reservation because Erika was working west coast hours and I had to get ready after working out. When we arrived at 10pm, the place was super packed lots of people were still waiting for tables. We started with the bread, a pita-like texture with herbs and olive oil:


For an appetizer, we shared the mushroom Millefeuille:


It’s difficult to see because I didn’t use flash in the photo, but they shaved the mushrooms super thin and made it look like a French pastry.

For our main course, we ordered the chicken and crepes for two:


Which came with lots of fresh sides, including sliced radishes:


And we also ordered a side of pommes frites, which were served with crack sauce and triple fried:


The chicken is juicy and best eaten with the skin, radishes, some sauces, and all wrapped in a crepe. Erika and I enjoyed the chicken but it was way too much food and I ended up taking it home to enjoy for lunch the next day (Ken thought he would enjoy it for a late dinner when I got home, though, and I woke up without any chicken!) The pommes frites are so crispy and the sauce is a cream-based sauce that was SO delicious.

We finished our meal with beignets dusted with powdered sugar with a chicory caramel sauce:


I was not a fan of the chicory caramel sauce but the hot pockets of fried dough with powdered sugar were definitely a winner.

We really enjoyed our meal there and the atmosphere was also really fun for a night out. I’ll definitely go back sometime this summer!
