People kept asking me if I had been to Piora yet. A gem of a restaurant that opened under the radar on Hudson Street in the West Village. My friend had already been once and I met up with her for drinks and then some the other night. I was thrilled to go. What a fantastic addition to the neighborhood and even better Piora is walking distance from my home.
We always started with a vodka. You can't see the ice cubes in the glass that clearly through the photo but it is literally a large handcut ice cube. Pretty special.
We split everything. This is the market salad. The plates are dressed with the serving to one side. This was a salad of mixed greens, thinly sliced vegetables and a thousand island powder dressing. Delicious.
This is a portion of roasted sunchokes. They are super crispy with a saba sauce. They are addictive. If if wasn't for the fact that a fork is the appropriate utensil here I'd be popping these in my mouth with my hand.
I loved the food and the atmosphere. Looking forward to going back. Good news they are also open for lunch!
