NYC: Parm

I have had two people tell me how awesome Parm was, so on my recent trip to NYC Dani and I decided that we would eat here for dinner. This was hands down one of the best meals I have eaten in awhile. I apologize for the horrible photos (the restaurant was very dark), but this was hands down one of the best meals I have had in awhile. 

Based on a recommendation from a friend who lives in the city stating that this may just be the best bite of the city he has had we ordered a Mozzarella Ball $9 and Garlic Bread $5. I don't know about the best bite in the city but it is pretty darn close. Great mozzarella-you will think twice about eating shredded mozz from the grocery store after this. 
D, D's bro and I all ordered an Our Roots Drink $12 (root, ginger beer, vanilla) based on a mouthwatering photo that we saw. The drink was ok, def not worth the $12 price tag. It sort of tasted like a flat less flavorful root beer. 
D and D's friend ordered the Chicken Parm. When you order a Parmesan you can order it 3 ways: on a roll $9, a hero $12 or a platter $17. Her friend got the roll and D got the platter which comes with either ziti or a salad and the parm comes without bread. This was delicious. Perfect Chicken Parmesan.
I ordered the Meatball Parm on a hero $12. Delicious. 
D's bro Ricky ordered the special featured for Saturday night, and def the star out of all of our dishes, the Veal Parm $25 served with a warm spinach salad-like side. I am not a fan of Veal and I LOVED this and everyone agreed it was the best meal. I don't know if this normal or not, but they put a layer of zucchini (or another similar veggie) on top of the good.  
I realize my descriptions of the tastes are not very in-depth, but just think of your typical Parm dish, except much better. I highly recommend this place-I am still thinking about this meal.

This is a very small restaurant so be prepared to wait if you come on the weekend (it's worth the wait). Luckily there are lots of bars around where you can go and wait or you can just wander around the area-lot's to see. I would recommend any of the dishes we got above. Personally I would skip the drinks, $12 is a lot for a drink that is just ok and $14 for a small glass of wine is pricey-I know its NYC but I still think it is a lot.
