I had lunch with my friend Jill, founder and owner of The Dish’s Dishes, a cool twist on private cheffing. The 2 foodies met at Borough Food & Drink Borough Food & Drinkfor what seemed like a cool concept. They collect all the best stuff from the different boroughs and create a menu around it. They source from places like Russ & Daughters, Sullivan Street Bakery, and more. I had high hopes but my Jerk Chicken was dry, sitting on top of even drier rice and beans, with a spicy but flavorless scotch bonnet sauce. We shared the Tobacco Onion Rings which were good but excessivley salty. I didn’t finish my dish or the onion rings which is not a good sign and to top it off, it was an expensive lunch. At around $21 per person, I can think of plenty of other places I’d rather be.
