The Skinny Pig is going through some changes; take the shnazzy new banners for example (thank you GFQ!), and in addition to that, there will be a new schedule so you'll know what to expect on The Skinny Pig from now on. As you can see, Tuesdays will be a compilation of reviews and/or smaller posts that are more photo-centric, hence Tuesday Tastes. Hooray! Stay tuned for tomorrow's "theme"…and in the meantime enjoy some "tastes" from my Restaurant Week dinner at Tanuki Tavern..nums!
These wings were so delicious and they gave you six of them. Drizzle the lemon on top and enjoy the salty, crispy crunch. Drool.
Great burger from Tanuki Tavern, again huge portions for Restaurant Week prices. I was happy. And the spicy fries were addictive..
Tuna/salmon sushi. Nothing wrong with it, but it needed the soy sauce and could have used more spice
Chocolate banana cream tart – god help me. Though not as good as this..
The picture came out a little wonky, but it's a chocolate red miso cake oozing with chocolatey goodness.
I don't really understand Tanuki Tavern. I've been there a few times and the food is really good yet the place is never packed. It's in a trendy spot in Meatpacking, which probably works against it in a lot of ways because they have to compete with the likes of Pastis, Spice Market, Bill's Bar and Burger, and the Gansevoort Hotel. Sigh…
