NYC Restaurant Week - Winter 2011

We're finally headed to restaurant week! After looking over menus for years, we've finally booked a lunch and dinner for next weekend! For lunch we'll be dining at Tribeca's Plein Sud, followed by a dinner at Barbounia, located in the Flatiron district.

Here are both menus: Plein Sud and Barbounia

While we'll probably do a little sharing/sampling, I think I've got my meals all planned out.

Tarte Flambee - smoked baked, onion & fromage blanc
Butternut Squash Ravioli - crispy sweetbreads, toasted almonds, brown butter & sage
Tribeca - peanut butter ganache, rich chocolate cake, chocolate sorbet

Moroccan Harira Soup - lamb, chickpea, black lentil, harrisa & lemon juice
Fresh Fettucine Carbonara - duck prosciutto, duck confit, wild mushrooms & black pepper
Valrhona Dark Chocolate Terrine - sumsumia & carmelized hazelnuts

It should be a blast, and we'll hopefully have restaurant reviews for both locations sometime next week.
