What was once the Hurricane Club, and then the short-lived General Assembly, is now Park Avenue Autumn (Winter, Spring, Summer). This restaurant that used to be housed on the UES, has moved to this ill-fated space, but I'm happy to tell you, this one is a keeper. Park Avenue Autumn is a great restaurant.
This is a fine-tuned machine, from great service to perfectly executed delicious fare. I stopped in and took a seat at their bar recently and had a delightful meal.
Kale & Manchego Salad is enlivened by a pour of some Chestnut honey, which is ingenious and awesome.
Halibut comes with Black Truffles and a brioche poached egg. At a whopping $39 it is not cheap, but it is darn delicious, perfectly executed, and wonderful.
One of the craziest dishes I've ever seen on a menu is at Park Avenue Autumn- Broccoli and Cheetos. I had to order it (I swear I wasn't high). Did I love it or hate it? I actually didn't mind it, although gimmicky, it was tasty and satisfying..The only thing I would say is that if you are going to be a high-end restaurant, you should make you own version of Cheetos, instead of using the ones from the bag. I applaud their balls though.
For dessert, I can never pass up a Sundae. My Maple Bourbon Pecan Pie Sundae, with bourbon salted caramel and coffee cream tickled my fancy. #yesplease
Park Avenue Autumn is here to stay.
