Good afternoon readers! I had the pleasure of spending a date night at The Standard Grill before the holidays. The restaurant came highly recommended by a co-worker of Jon’s. We love date nights and it had been awhile since we ventured out and tried something new. I can not say enough great things about The Standard Grill. As soon as we entered the restaurant we had incredible service.
The Standard Grill has an amazing menu with so much to choose from. We decided to have the grilled calamari for an appetizer to share. The calamari was so tender and not at all chewy, just the way that we like it!
Our waiter was really helpful in suggesting menu items that we might enjoy because we were having such a tough time figuring it out. There were so many option that we wanted to try! We decided to go with the special of the night which was bouillabaisse and the veal chop. I had never been a veal fan but recently I have had a few veal chops and hate to admit it but they are yummy. The bouillabaisse was served with some bread for dipping in the broth. The broth was so good we soaked it all up with the bread by the end of the meal.
The dishes were so delicious that I had forgotten that I wanted to get photos until, the food was pretty much finished! I decided to still share the photos with you anyways. The veal was incredible but so was everything else on the plate. I can not even describe how tasty the roasted vegetables were that they had paired with the veal. One of my favorite thing about fall and winter is seasonal roasted vegetables. They are so easy to make and they taste outstanding. I recommend both of these dishes. We had shared them because neither one of us wanted to make a decision on who had what. I can not say enough good things about the veal. The chop was perfectly seasoned and cooked just the way I like it!
I can tell you that this may have been our first dinner at The Standard Grill but it will not be our last. I promise next time that I will take photos of the food before I eat all of it! We were so full this last time that we did not get to try any of the dessert. I am sure by the taste of the entree’s that the desserts would also be out of this world. Not only was the food great but the ambiance and service were beyond my expectations. Great service is sometimes hard to find in the New York City. This would be an amazing choice for a Valentine’s Day date this year. I look forward to the next date night that we spend at The Standard Grill NYC.
