EAT: SUMMER MENU AT MOUNTAIN BIRD
Next up was the Branzino Carpaccio special with sea urchin which was just as artfully plated as the previous dish and had delicate petals along with some salmon roe as garnish. Those who adore sashimi will love this delicate dish that has a bit of punch thanks to the creamy uni added on top. Black Bass was the fish of the day and the beautiful presentation came out on a bed of cauliflower puree, fresh vegetables and a shaving of summer truffles. Needles to say, everything was of the best quality and we could not have had a more delicious meal uptown (which we say quite often these days).
Desserts are really not our thing but the warm sticky toffee pudding at Mountain Bird is not to be missed. The pudding itself is not specifically sweet but has a pool of caramel and tangy cream topping to balance it all out. This probably one of the more unique desserts to be found in Harlem and is worth checking out for any first time diner.
