Thanan and I have been mourning the loss of M Wells over the last year, remembering how we met up one cheery morning, ate bowls of fat, and then each went home to our respective boroughs to pass out. It was a great meal.
Well quite excitedly, M Wells is back ! Now as a Dinette operating out of MOMA PS1 in Long Island City. The whole space is bright, warm, and looks like a classroom.
The full menu is displayed on a green chalkboard.
It's hard to read when giant obnoxious Thai heads are in the way (instantly brings me back to memories of elementary school again).
Matcha is mixed tableside by waitresses in leather hotpants.
Yulee ordered the potato and uni, doused in a light, citrusy yuzu sabayon, and topped with a poached egg.
I'd probably recommend most people not to eat this as an entree, and share this ridiculously decadent dish to feel better about oneself and just not die. The roasted onion jam spread added nice tang to the rich chunks of bone marrow, and the chewy bits of escargot and porcini mushrooms help break things up a bit also.
I would eat oatmeal everyday if it tasted like this. Creamy, nutty and just magical - especially when combined with the ever so succulent foie gras.
Han's Nonsensical Rating: Foie-get about your diet ! It's winter ! Your arteries need a fresh coat of fun, indulgent fat !
