We heard about Blaue Gans, an Austrian restaurant located in TriBeCa, thanks to our friend Tessa and decided to have dinner there one night, as we were in that area. the place was packed for sure and it had a nice atmosphere, a bit artsy, the posters of various exhibits surely playing a role there.

I decided to accompany my meal with a glass of Riesling, "Terrassen" Federspiel, Tegenseerhof, Wachau 2014 that was deliciously sweet.

We started off our meal with the bratwurst, that was served with potatoes, sauerkraut and some horseradish that was delightfully spicy. It was a perfect way to start the meal, the sausage being delicious.

Then, Jodi went for the roasted cod, served with carrots and asparagus, and a Riesling sauce. It was a nice presentation, with beautiful colors. The fish was flakey and perfectly cooked.

On my side, I went for the beef goulash that was served with peppers and quark spatzle.  Nice dish, the spatzle being quite creamy thanks to the quark, I however found the beef a bit gamey...

Last was dessert. We went for the chocolate cake, the Sachertorte. A bit disappointing as I like chocolate cakes really chocolatey...

Overall, the meal was ok, my favorite being the bratwurst and the fish. I admit that I am a bit on the fence at this point and I am not sure I would go back there. Maybe, maybe not...

Enjoy (...)!
