Sometimes a mom needs a break, put on some killer heels, go out with the girls, and get a fantastic martini.TBar fits that descriptor quite well. TBar is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The atmosphere has a “sex in the city” vibe with cozy lighting and a cozy bar to the left. Upper East Side residents are also fun to watch- think Gossip Girl.
Let’s jump to the food, as that is the highlight here. For a place without sushi in the title, the sushi was undoubtedly one of the best and original I’ve ever had. The Crispy Sushi was delicious. It was an excellent sushi-grade product over “crispy rice,” which added to the texture of the fish. My only regret is not having ordered more. We followed that with the Crispy Roasted Duck and the filet mignon with a side of french fries and Brussels sprouts. The duck was a generous portion- almost too much eat, and the orange glaze was delicious. The filet mignon was cooked to my liking and was accompanied by an excellent bearnaise sauce. Unfortunately, I couldn’t stop eating the fries. My husband enjoyed the Crusty Tuna, which indeed flowed nicely with the sushi entrées.
The highlight was the Banana Mille-Feuille. Upon doing my due diligence, I discovered that this dish was a huge favorite. It is a tasty blend of coconut, banana, and caramel served over vanilla ice cream. The comments and reviews I saw online do not do it justice. It is a unique dish that is sweet, crunchy, and smooth all at the same time. It is not overly sweet, and neither the coconut nor the banana dominate. It is a perfect blend! You need to leave room for dessert!
In all honesty, we did take our 14-year-old, but next time I’ll admit we’re leaving her at home as this is an awesome mom‘s night out dinner. I will be coming back with my girlfriends next time.
