AYZA WINE AND CHOCOLATE BAR

Dinner for two at Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar was a nice way to end the weekend. I discovered they recently opened a location in the West Village. The atmosphere is romantic and the food is delectable. We shared a platter of appetizers, perfect for 2, that included: Hot Artichoke Hearts with Irish cheddar cheese, ripe tomatoes, and toasted pita; White Truffle Pizza with a garlicky cream sauce, bresaola (salt cured beef), and white truffle oil; and Angry Chicken Lollipops with spicy sesame, hoisin sauce, and crispy rice noodles. As an entrée we enjoyed a buttery, rich, and delightful Foie Gras (Foie Gras [Fwah Grah] is the liver from a goose or duck who has been forced-fed for months so that the liver becomes fatty). For dessert we enjoyed their Twenty-Layer Crepes Cake Brulee, which is a crème brulee style cake with 20 layers of crêpe and organic whipped cream. I took home a slice of their dark chocolate cake, which made an exceptional addition to a hot fudge sundae I made a few days later for an extra special person in my life.

My companion and I sipped on a sparkling French wine. We were given samples of a warmly served house-made wine that mimicked a slice of warm apple pie. The wait staff treated us wonderfully. Ayza is a beautiful restaurant in a great location. The food is extraordinary. Visit the restaurant on a themed night that includes: Couples Night on Sundays, Live Jazz on Mondays, and Girls’ Night out on Tuesdays. They also host wine tastings. With a selection of over 90 fine wines and champagnes, you won’t be bored with their wine list. Feel free to visit their Midtown location at 11 West 31st Street (Bet. 5th Ave. & Broadway) New York, NY 10001 – (212) 714-2992
