Esquire’s record of “Greatest New Dining places 2020” is out — indeed, in spite of the pandemic — and involves two Westchester places to eat.
Esquire’s Jeff Gordinier mentioned that Goosefeather chef Dale Talde’s menu finds its core inspiration from the cuisine of Hong Kong, but “is shaken up with all types of farm-to-tabley and pub-grubish twists: ribs of sweet summer corn dusted with Chinese five-spice powder, kung pao rooster wings that you dunk in a tub of buttermilk ranch, crab rice which is acquired much more levels than a Christopher Nolan film.”
Goosefeather opened in September 2019.
Talde said the nomination was a vibrant place for the duration of a 12 months that’s been a wrestle for the marketplace.
“Agnes [his wife and business partner] and I are certainly honored to be bundled in this year’s class of Greatest New Dining establishments,” claimed Talde. ” We want to thank “Esquire” and Jeff Gordinier, and most importantly our crew who make it all come about, and our company who have been supporting us from working day a single, even by this definitely challenging and challenging 12 months. We are optimistic and enthusiastic for the new calendar year and the new activations and programming we will include to the Tarrytown Residence Estate property.”
As for Blue Hill, Gordinier presents kudos to founder and chef Dan Barber and his Michelin-starred team who innovated throughout the pandemic, providing outdoor “picnic” dinners at the restaurant.
Blue Hill provided “museum-worthy boxes of berries and bouquets … that gave folks a minute to relish foodstuff and serenity in contemporary air,” Gordinier wrote, as perfectly as for the decision by Barber to surrender his role in the kitchen in 2021 “so that a various lineup of cooks from about the globe can have access to the sources of Stone Barns and join with a wider viewers.”
Barber declared in August that Blue Hill would be pivoting to a chef-in-residence program setting up in 2021.
