Big flavors loom in the tiny nook of a restaurant called Graffiti in the East Village. Chef Jehagnir Mehta will tease your taste buds with some interesting flavor combinations.
Green Mango Paneer ($7) will awaken those buds, and take you to India to start.
Pickled Ginger Scallops ($12) with Candied Red Chili is awesome! With both fabulous flavors and textures, it is a treat to eat.
Duck portobello gratinee ($15) with mustard onion confit, is unique and delicious.
The Graffiti Burger ($15), with garlic fingerling potatoes and chipotle mayonaise had good flavor. I prefer my burgers juicier, it was a tad overcooked in my humble opinion.
Desserts ($7) at Graffiti, like everything else, are both playful, fun, and a joy to eat. Hazelnut chocolate caviar cupcake with chocolate chip ice cream surely hit the spot. My sister, the NYC Foodette, fell in love with the warm truffle almond strawberries and pepper ice cream.
