After a stinging experience at Bellavita on Saturday night, I needed to be fed - and fast. We meandered down Carmine past Grey Dog and stopped at Deborah (Carmine and Bleeker). Deborah opened many years ago to much fanfare but its limited menu and small space made it remain low on my list. Last night however, when we peeked inside, the restaurant was only half full and the staff happily greeted us - a welcome change from the too bright and too rude Bellavita. The menu has obviously expanded from its early days and there was more than enough to choose from. Ultimately, we shared the calamari with thai dipping sauce (a bit oily but still delish) and phyllo dough triangles stuffed with artichoke, spinach and dun dried tomatoes - truly taking this wedding appetizer staple to the next level. Our entrees also delighted us - fish tacos with a spicy side sauce for my dining companion and pork tenderloin with garlic mashed potatoes, collard greens and maple syrup toasted corn bread for me. All and all a delicious and well priced west village find! The service was also excellent and the night could not have been more perfect.
