Respond to Review of Blossom Restaurant
by Marte P
Review: We went to Blossom twice during our stay in NYC. The first day we had lunch here, where I had the soy bacon cheeseburger and my partner had the Tuscan portobello sandwich. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have the Philly Cheese steak that was on their menu online, but we were both happy with our meal. We shared the chocolate ganache with soy ice cream for dessert, and it was absolutely divine - but I do recommend sharing it, as it is quite a bite.. but ooh so good. Our waiter was really nice, and the restaurant itself is just lovely. The day after we went back for dinner, and this was such a lovely experience. We had a different waiter, equally nice as the guy the day before, and enjoyed an amazing three course meal. After reading the recommendations here, we had the Porcini cigars for starter, and they are just to die for. This must be one of the best starters I have ever had, and if you ever come there, do not miss them. We also had today's soup (tomato and chick peas) which was quite bland. As an entree, I had the port wine seitan which was very good, but didn't quite live up to my expectations after reading so much about it here. My partner had the rigatoni in porcini cream, and he did not so much eat his meal than inhale it - apparently it was one of the best pastas he has ever had (he is very much an omnivore). For dessert we shared a lavender and coconut creme brulee. I can swear that I would have never in a million years known this was vegan if it was served to me in a regular restaurant. It was absolutely exquisite. Coming from Norway, the prices are not high at all, and it is so worth it. Great in every way.
