Navy recently opened in Soho on Sullivan Street. The restaurant is absolutely adorable. They put it together to feel as if it has been part of the neighborhood for ever. Perfect for Soho. The menu is ever changing and is skewed towards seafood although the couple sitting next to us split the pork and it looked delicious. The service was really spotty when we were there. It was as if the seat we were sitting in was the bad seat. People around us seemed to be getting fed. Even our drinks were late to the party. The owner eventually talked to us and took a few things off the bill which was appreciated. Communication would have been better. Our waitress basically screwed up, it was not the kitchen. Regardless, I will definitely be back to try it for possibly breakfast and lunch too.
Our next share was the black bass crudo. I love how everything was served in the bowls. Thinly sliced black bass sitting in a cold rhubarb vinaigarette with kernel oil and these small kernels of pine nuts. The little bit of nut just changed the whole dish.
I had the tile fish. Simple poached fish with crispy skin over chopped yellow and red tomatoes, a grilled spring onion and charred chili. There was definitely a kick to this. Well prepared. On the side we have a charred fava dish with thinly sliced radishes and a cultured cream mint with dill. I took a terrible picture and the dish sounded much better than it actually was.
All and all the food is really well done. Kind of felt like we were in a European coastal town somewhere. A nice feeling to have while dining on Sullivan Street in Soho.
