Village Voice's Description

Though the name is Dutch (it means "Today"), the food at this promising East Village restaurant falls within the canon of New American cooking, though Dutch food is always the touchstone and embarkation point for the culinary experiments of Phillip Kirschen-Clark, a chef who cut his eye teeth at Jimmy's No. 43. The collection of northern European brews and gin-based cocktails alone merits a visit to the bar, and the agreeable menu runs from Dutch standards like bitterballen (oxtail croquettes) and pickled oysters, to inventions such as lamb sweetbreads served with Holland peppers and hickory, and a splendid roast hen for two, flavored with lemon and bay leaves.

    One of our fav cocktails of the year is the Radler, a frothy mix of Belgian wheat beer, limes, and a bracing shot of pineapple-infused aquavit. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!

    Yes, the cocktails seem insane. But a Turf War makes the argument and the roast hen and hete bliksem finishes it. This place is cool.

  • AskMen on 07/30/10

    A sunny & modernly decorated spot that serves Dutch specialties like bitterballen - a braised oxtail croquette with mustard relish, & hete bliksem, crisp taters with bacon, apple & stroop syrup.

    Try a Salt-n-Pepa, with Fresno chile pepper-infused aquavit, blanco tequila, lime, agave, and a fennel pollen salted rim.

    the CB3Sour is wonderful (they do beer cocktails right). Remember they serve food at the bar, and the Vandaag burger goes well with any drink.
