What to get:
– Sautéed Foie Gras and Duck
– Roasted Bone Marrow
Foie gras, bone marrow, and sea urchin all under one roof. I am sold. Greenwich Grill is a Japanese-Italian fusion restaurant housed in the same building and owned by the same group as Michelin-starred Sushi Azabu. Greenwich Grill is on the first floor and Sushi Azabu is in the basement. I was really satisfied with most of the dishes and will definitely be back.
Service was exceptional and worth mentioning. Our server was extremely attentive. The dishes came out one by one (the table wasn’t big enough to hold all the plates at the same time) and as soon as we finished one dish, she cleared the table and brought out the next dish. Every dish that landed at our table came with an explanation of the ingredients and recommendation to best enjoy it.
Bread with Salmon Cream Cheese (Complimentary)
Salmon cream cheese was surprisingly good, not fishy at all.
Sautéed Foie Gras and Duck ($16) wrapped in a thin flour crust with marsala wine sauce
The duck and foie gras were so rich and fatty–seriously melt in your mouth good and savory all around. This dish was very well-executed. I recommend a glass of dry red wine with this.
Roasted Bone Marrow ($14) with beef ragu and breadcrumbs
This was the biggest piece of bone I have ever gotten in any bone marrow dish. The bone was not just for show; bone to marrow ratio was good, too. The dish came with hard toast and vegetables, which I found to be distracting and took the flavor away from the marrow so I just ate the marrow solo.
Sea Urchin & Claim Linguine (Regular $18; Large $24) in garlic and extra virgin olive oil
My friend and I split a regular portion and they graciously split the dish into two bowls for us. The linguine itself was really well made and slightly firm. There were only a few really small pieces of sea urchin in the dish. The dish tasted more like clam than sea urchin and I can’t say that I really tasted much of the sea urchin flavor. Overall, the dish was really salty and didn’t meet my expectation.
Matcha Tiramisu ($7)
This was pretty light. The amount of matcha was just right, not too overpowering. Perfect end to the meal.
