When a friend decides to move and leave for greener pastures, it's a sad time. I never want to see anyone go. But I always like to do a last hurrah. And for this dear friend, we went to The Marrow. This Harold Dieterle restaurant in the West Village boast both contemporary German and Italian food. And ode to his heritage and the food behind it.
My friends aren't exactly adventurous eaters so the bone marrow was pushing it a little bit. So to ease their appetites a bit, I also ordered the burrata ($15) with butternut squash, sofrito, extra virgin olive oil, and black garlic balsamic. This cheese is similar to mozzarella but has a creamy center instead. When brought to room temperature, it oozes dairy goodness over the other ingredients. And that's exactly what it did. The combination of the sweet squash, and tangy balsamic paired really well with the richness of the cheese. I think we all like this appetizer the most.
