Park Tavern’s Brussels Sprout Chips

March 18, 2012

The vegetable everyone loves to hate, Brussels Sprouts, gets some lovin’ from Chef Jennifer Puccio.

The Dish: Though Park Tavern‘s Brussels Sprout Chips may look like average bar food served in a wooden bowl, reject your initial gut reaction to say no to Brussels Sprouts, and say yes to this finger-lickin’ good appetizer! Made famous at sister restaurant Marlowe, these chips crunch and melt in your mouth all at the same time. Instead of indulging in salty French fries, put that salt on a healthy veggie alternative and still enjoy the “je ne sais quoi” factor.

Key Ingredients: Brussels Sprouts, salt

The Place: Park Tavern is a black and white affair minus the price tag. With white tile floors, a dark wood interior, and an Othello board aesthetic, this Washington Square Park restaurant would be the unassuming cousin to Tyler Florence’s Wayfare Tavern. If you’re a chic urbanite, pay a visit to see what the buzz is about.

On the Side: The menu breaks appetizers up by raw, fried, and smoked. Don’t miss the smoked deviled eggs with bacon, pickled jalapeno, and chives. Bacon is just too hot right now to pass these up!

The Details: Brussels Sprout Chips are $7 at Park Tavern
