The Tangled Vine Wine Bar & Kitchen has tangled up a new chef! John Conlin III, formerly of Savoy, is bringing his farm to table cooking to the venue. The menu will now focus even more on seasonal and local produce and will still have a Mediterranean flair. The new chef is also relaunching brunch with a new menu with delectables such as oyster hash omelette with east coast oysters, the Tangled Vine burger short rib blend, and the hangover special with pork 'n' eggs.
Regular menu items include spring consomme with fava beans, goat cheese dumplings and oyster mushrooms, roasted chicken with green garlic puree and spring onions, and many other tasty treats. Also being served at the restaurant are over 250 wines by the bottle and over 40 by the glass, which are biodynamic, organic, and sustainable from France, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Germany. You can partake in one of their "trios," in which you can sample 2-ounce tastes of three different wines if you can't settle for just one.
There are a lot of restaurants in New York touting organic, locally grown food. There aren’t so many restaurants that have their very own farm supplying them.
Blue Hill is just such a restaurant. What would seem like just another organic eatery in Greenwich Village is something more. The restaurant owners are refurbishing the Blue Hill Farm to supply their restaurant with personally chosen ingredients, (rustic ingredients are already chosen form several farms throughout the New England region.) While the family farm is still in early stages of production, it already supplies the several restaurants under the Blue Hill name with grass-fed meats, vegetables and fresh milk.
