I dine out every night. I rarely dine in the Upper East Side (eek!) or the Financial District. I love discovering gems though anywhere in New York City (or around the World), that many people do not know about. When a publicist friend invited me to BPG, a restaurant right across from the 9/11 Memorial, I did not know what to expect. What I got, was perfectly solid and great fare.
The cuisine at BPG is described as "global fusion", and I enjoyed every dish sent out.
Smoked scallop lobster bisque ($12), was perfect. Lumps of fresh and sweet lobster; delicious.
Crispy fish tacos ($12), with Napa cabbage slaw, was excellent. Perfectly tender fish, great flavor, great texture.
Fried calamari ($12), served with a tamarind sauce, were on the sweeter side.
Risotto balls were fabulous.
Churrasco filet mignon ($29), served with sauteed potatoes, mushrooms, and a chimichurri sauce, was a steak lovers dream.
Sauteed halibut ($29), with risotto of Spring vegetables and clam chowder sauce was wonderful.
New York City is truly Magical. There are hidden gems throughout, and you never know where or when you might happen upon one.
