When you put fresh, seasonal, and local together, voilà! You have iCi.
If you’re in the market for an intimate venue for a special date night, faite attention. Okay, so this new American bistro isn’t really French, but it is romantic, tasty, and eco-friendly. And you could be this week’s giveaway winner of a dinner for two up to $75.
Should you venture across the Brooklyn Bridge on February 14, the prix-fixe will include mini ginger cream and topika crepes, a rosemary rack of lamb, and a chocolate torte with bourbon sauce and Chantilly. Otherwise, you might try crispy sweet and sour pork belly, vegetarian lasagna, and pumpkin mousse with a spiced graham cracker tart.
