Mushy peas are not just for babies

23 Apr

I learned this last week at Whitehall, a Modern British restaurant in the West Village, where everyone left happy after a group dinner. Cozy atmosphere. Terrific service. Super gin cocktails. And interesting food with British touches from the team behind Mary Queen of Scots and Highlands.

The Mushy Pea Fritters with Minted Yoghurt (leaving in English “H”) was prob my fave snacky item. Or the House Cut Chips with HP Sauce—our only mistake was not ordering more. App: Salmon with Celery Root-Horseradish Panna Cotta (where weird meets good). Mains ranged from chicken to sea bream to pork chop, and the best dessert was Bitter Chocolate Brownie (not bitter, yes warm, no nuts).

Don’t come here on a diet or a budget. But with a small group celebrating something special, you can eat like the queen for a day.
