Your BelleIsleBlog ventured a little far from home base to test the goodies at The Forge on 41st Street, and, WOW!
The renovation cost $10 million and at a year dragged on a little longer than planned (and there is still scaffolding outside the place at 432 41st. St.), but the wait was worth it.
The place is beautiful, the menu varied and inventive, and the food is spectacular. The wines — can’t say too much about the selection. And price-wise (remember, this is a neighborhood restaurant), it won’t set you back any more than Sardinia or Joe Allen.
Chef Dewey LoSasso rocks. You have to check it out.
