44 & X Restaurant Review

: This bustling neighborhood restaurant on a prime Hell's Kitchen corner is well suited to catching up with friends on a weeknight, and it’s a stroller-haven for brunch. The menu runs the gamut --- from a sweetly nutty persimmon salad with Oregon blue cheese to pan-roasted scallops with sweet corn and pickled squash, the sweet/savory bridge is put to good use. Fish dishes are prevalent but comfort food excels, as in the fried chicken with a chive waffle and Vermont cheddar macaroni and cheese, or roasted rack of lamb over a truffled goat cheese risotto cake. For dessert, we like the strawberry rhubarb pie with yogurt gelato. The accessible wine list is categorized by style, such as light/elegant/dry and rich/full/generous.
