Description:

Now under chef Perry Hendrix, One Off Hospitality Group’s long-standing flagship no longer sets the avant-garde pace but still delivers a great high-end meal. A well-executed duck breast with buttermilk spaetzle and fennel, for example, lightens up with an orange sauce, riffing on a classic dish. A foie gras appetizer combines with a broth of pear and caramelized onions, forging the liver-and-onions connection in haute-cuisine land. An Earl Grey and prune sauce enriches barbecued pork collar. The step back from brash artistic statements to more-familiar but inarguably wonderful food takes Blackbird from bucket list restaurant to special night out. Save room for consistently wonderful desserts.
