Wild Edibles is great choice for any diner looking for seafood. With a market location in Grand Central, the restaurant in Midtown East proves to be just as good. This one Sunday after a nice and long hike around Bear Mountain area, my friend and I headed to get a late lunch that would – at bare minimum – have delicious raw oysters.
It was a gulp fest of raw oysters, and what made this especially sweet was knowing they were 99-cents. Also to make this even better, for every six you can get a lager or wine for $4 available EVERYDAY from noon-6pm. I happily ordered a house glass of wine on the side.
I ordered fish cakes served with poached eggs and spicy tomato ragu. I basically inhaled this dish. Every aspect was delicious: the fish tasted fresh and wasn’t “cakey”, eggs were poached perfectly, and the tomato ragu provided a tart flavor that helped undercut the heavy elements (fish cake and egg).
By breaking the yolk on top, it gave the dish an additional creamy texture. I strategically used the cake to soak up the ragu and egg yolk combination. Delicious? OH YES.
I plan on going back to Wild Edibles and enjoy their happy hour special again. I’ll be ready to slurp some more oysters, try a few more items on the menu, and walk away with a happy tummy.
