Village Voice's Description
Finding a cool, reasonably priced eatery in Midtown is as rare as finding a straight, sexy, single man in this city--until now. Enter Tenpenny, a delightful new spot tucked into the back of the Gotham Hotel on 46th Street. The décor is a little bland, but this ain't your meat-and-potato grub hub. Far from it. Porchetta ravioli with smoked ricotta, broccoli rabe, and a runny poached egg redefines "breakfast for dinner," while a heritage pork rack with savory apple pie is good old American comfort. Come dessert, be sure to try the chamomile panna cotta-the floral-flavored custard jiggles sensuously, like a courtesan who has lost her corset following a good romp.
Tips from foursquare
Yeah, it’s a hotel. Start with an Unstrung Harp, get the vegetables appetizer and the pork to finish, with rye as a dessert. Who knew?
Try the roasted vegetables. The various, seasonal components are prepared in different ways and arranged in a gorgeous tableau. They’re one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
Dark and cozy and beyond amazing food! Apps try beet salad, beef tartar, ocean trout crudo. Entrees: all pastas are soooo good! The pork rack is a MUST. A great addition to the area. Way needed.
Village Voice is excited to have Tenpenny at the 2012 ChoiceEats food fest! Full list of restaurants here: http://ow.ly/8QjDQ
