There was some spice in the potatoes that, perhaps along with the flax egg, made the latke taste not quite right. And it tasted less right when combined with ikura, crème fraiche, and pear/quince jam. Is there any hope of that working?
Should have been flavorless
Latkes should taste like potatoes.
Eating latkes with sour cream and salmon roe is traditional. Eating them with jam is also a thing. Eating all of those together seems like a bad idea.
Maybe the extra taste is mold
We call that funk.
Jam, dry aged 30 days. I guess it’s ok if you remove the pellicle
I’m pretty sure Koslow cleaned up her jam act after that brouhaha.
This place is still good.
Malba pudding - A (no + because it wasn’t warmed all the way through.
Crispy rice bowl w/ the works - A+ (needs hot sauce and charging 50 cents for it is kinda annoying)
Brioche - A- (bread was a touch dry but ricotta and jam were delicious.
Esp since the “base” version (per the menu on-line) is already supposed to contain hot sauce for “free.” Was the charge for extra hot sauce (I hope)?
If there was any hot sauce originally mixed in I couldn’t taste it.
