THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cub Room Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED If it were only for the creamy Parmesan risotto with duck confit and grilled corn, the Cub Room would be well worth a taxi to SoHo. Its tall windows open onto the street, and the antique brick walls cast a historic glow on the premises. There are a dozen appetizers each night, including specials that range from a slow-roasted beet and goat cheese gâteau with walnut praline to excellent Moroccan crab cake with cauliflower couscous and avocado-coconut sauce. Main courses include the Cub steak, a plump filet mignon roasted with butter and accompanied by a garlic-and-Parmesan potato gratin; wild king salmon with caramelized apple and creamy leeks; and the chicken under a brick, an Italian concept of cooking the bird under a weight, which results in crisp skin. Desserts like the warm chocolate cake with bananas and macadamia nut ice cream or one of the soufflés are textbook perfect.
