Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Darphin potato and uni
$$, French, Wine Bar, Modern, Full Bar, Lower East Side
"Wildair's darphin potaro and uni is classic East meets West equals perfection! Crispy potato pancake topped with briny, meaty uni is the best combination in years. The potato pancake cuts the oceanic flavor of the uni while adding texture. Just get it."
