Fish & Farm Restaurant Review

: Fish & Farm has become a place of experiment, and has attempted all-inclusive pricing on its menus. Chef Obed Ix-Yah is the man commandeering this intimate restaurant's tiny kitchen located just outside of Union Square. Produce is exclusively organic, as are many of the wines. Meat and seafood are raised humanely and sustainably. The space features walls washed in aqua, comfortable booths and banquettes, marble tabletops and distressed wood chairs. Local products are used beautifully in dishes such as creamy roasted cauliflower soup cleverly seasoned with pickled grapes. The kitchen ventures into pasta with a hand-rolled gnocchi punctuated by salty ham hocks and melted Parmesan. Unfortunately, meat dishes such as the rib-eye with homemade steak sauce fall short, with overly fatty cuts and steak sauce that tastes generic, and the pork chop fails to showcase the nuances and layers of flavor promised by the server. The cheesecake in a jar and a peanut butter mousse with salted caramel speak to one’s inner child.
