Perfect Summer Lunch at Hundred Acres

If I could have a perfect lunch on a perfect day, it might be this lunch, had with my friend Galen (yes, yes, of the infamous Connecticut/Derby Day feasts).  My seared scallop obsession continues, as evidenced in my salad recipe.

Artichoke Lasagnette (DiPalo's ricotta and aged pecorino cheese) with a cold glass of Gruner Veltliner.

THE PLACE: Hundred Acres in Soho, at a table next to the open doors.

WHEN:  a totally uncrowded midweek lunch in May

WHAT: Artichoke lasagnette, crazy delicious seared scallops.

WHY GO: It’s unassuming, the menu is easy, local New American/Continental fare (same owners as Cookshop and Five Points), the cocktail list is great and there are outdoor options for the summertime.

    Noria- That artichoke lasagna looks insanely perfect. Thanks for the tip. Eating there for sure when I’m back in NY!

  2. It’s 9:16am and I’m already thinking about when I’m going to get to try these scallops. yamma.
