After the New York Fashion Week Mixer, mi amiga Katie and I walked a few blocks to stumble upon Sanctuary T.
The mostly woody interior was dimly lit and the menu seemed enticing enough. I liked that the upbeat staff didn’t seem to mind that we were only in the market for a quick bite and ordered two small plates of goat cheese fritters and some good ‘ol mac n cheese.
I really love anything with goat cheese, but these weren’t the easiest to eat. The cheese oozes out when you take a bite.
Mac n cheese was just what I wanted to see on the menu. The truffle oil taste wasn’t as apparent as I would have liked though. It was really just OK.
Finally, we knew we couldn’t go wrong with a molten chocolate cake with ice cream. The bottom of the dish had a caramel-cinnamon syrup that tasted pretty good with the combination of things. I think I’d give the food overall a B- rating, but I also would definitely not be opposed to going back and trying out an entree and the full crazy menu of tea offerings (hence, the restaurant name).
Even better was the cozy ambiance and extra points for the 90s music mash up — I can’t remember the last time I heard 3LW. You do or you don’t don’t…you will or you won’t won’t….no moreeee…no moreee…baby Imma do right…
C’mon, you know what I’m talkin about. Don’t embarrass me now.
