My boyfriend and I love to try different restaurant all over the world every time we got the chance, we been to the best restaurant here in New York ( Bouley, my fave, Le Bernardin, daniel, Morimoto etc. ) and decided to celebrate our 1st New Years dinner locally at 42, made reservation at the early time availability which is 5:30 pm or the 9:30 pm coz that the availability on the open table. So we got seated with the host and the place was pretty empty and didnt have the skyline view, come to find out they change the restaurant set up , the used to be bar now was the restaurant and the old restaurant with the the view now function as the events room. so we stayed and then we decided to do the 6 course meal so we can try more things, you have to pick you apps, pasta, entree and dessert and the waiter said that the 2 other course would be chef's choice appetizer and dessert. the first course that the waiter said came, the chef's choice; its a sorbet with 2 kinds of fish roe (orange color and black ) and some dehydrated green vegetable, come to find out its the amuse bosche that they served to all the tables wether you pick the 6 course meal or ala carte, followed with my choice of appetizer which is the crudo of cod which i liked and he got octopus dry then pasta course i got the egg yolk ravioli had he have the potato then entree i had duck and he have the steak which is okay then "d'' chef's choice dessert came and it was another sorbet, quince sorbet with full of cheese after cheese, i mean parmesan slices then on top is grated parmesan then quince sorbet then toasted parmesan on top, to be fair the quince sorbet i did liked it then my choice of dessert it was the New Macau came with little of crumble sponge cake topped with sorbet bigger than the sponge cake and 16 drops of some syrup with violet flowers, as if it is a sorbet dessert, for the $95.00 per person they charged is not worth it! Too bad were not coming back nor recommending it to our foodie friends.
