At a recent food event at Albert Hall Tavern, we had the good fortune of meeting the couple behindIf You Can Make That You Can Make This. We decided to get together to try another new restaurant in the West Village, Corner Shop Cafe, on Broadway and Bleecker.
It was well decorated in an appealing and different way.
I especially enjoyed the tin ceilings.
First order was a cuban sandwich.
It was good, but nothing special.
We ordered the brussels sprouts, which sounded similar to our favorite preparation method, however, these were very dissapointing. A little too oily, a little undercooked, a little low in flavor.
There was also an order of grilled salmon nicoise with a poached egg. I’m not a salmon fan, unless it’s in the form of lox, but I was told this was also just average.
We also ordered the mac and cheese which was truffled with peas and prosciutto. We also found this to be just average.
Overall, I think the word “average” completely sums it up. Great location. Great look and feel. Great idea. Average execution.
