Respond to Review of Blossom Restaurant
Review: I had the daily special on the day I visited. The special was some kind of seitan in sauce with mashed potatoes and vegetables. I LOVED the seitan: it was perfectly seasoned (with some exotic-tasting flavours that I couldn't quite place,) and was, without a doubt, the best-textured seitan I have ever had. I have never had another taste of seitan that was so perfect. The potatoes were good as well - same for the vegetables. The only thing that bothered me with the meal was the mostly hollowed-out breaded and deep fried onion that the mashed potatoes were served in. The onion was not mentioned in the description of the dish nor by the waiter. I really don't like large chunks of onion, so I was rather disgusted when I cut into the deep fried mess holding my potatoes and discovered it was onion. The service was quick, but somewhat snooty/impolite. The decor seemed cozy - and my eating partner and I had a nice table right by the front window. I (mostly,) loved the food, but I don't know if I would visit this restaurant again if I were to make another trip to NYC. Despite the food, I wasn't terribly impressed overall. I'd probably want to check out other places.
