“Cherrywood, by Guest Reviewer Dara Pollak”

shallot, with a steakhouse-worthy side of potato-crusted spinach. At medium rare, it melted in my mouth.

For fun, have the French fry “ends” with bacon crumble ($7). File this one under the greatest frat-style foods ever. But here’s the brilliant part: you don’t have to be drunk to enjoy it. However, if you choose to get drunk, you can easily do so at the bar with one or two of their cocktails, particularly the Vodka Cider (Grey Goose, Cointreau, apple cider, $12) and the Gimlet (Hendrick’s Gin, cucumber, lime, $12). But I digress. What are French fry “ends”? Exactly what they sound like: the extra crispy and crunchy parts of the French fry, cut into squares, almost like a brunoise, and topped with this bacon-breadcrumb mixture. Brilliant.  

Between the acclaimed chef, the dark red Cherrywood interior, and most importantly, the food, I still was very surprised by the lack of patrons in the restaurant. The area lends itself well to the sophisticated and trendy crowd, and in the beginning of the night I saw a few business-casual types hanging at the bar. Maybe it was an off night? Regardless, I told at least three people about the meal the following day and everyone said they’d like to try it, so hopefully this was just a fluke and Cherrywood will pick up the attention it deserves.

Cherrywood Kitchen is located at 300 Spring Street, 646-559-2328.
