Chowhounders have been uncharacteristically mum about the opening night of Tom: Tuesday Dinner (really? No one was twittering or live-blogging the meal from their iPhone?), but Pascale Le Draoulec of Forbes was in the house.
His Her assessment, which doesnt go into much detail about the $150 meal other than saying it was that good, is that, starting with a duck heart wrapped in pancetta, Colicchio is clearly making room for artistry in his cooking again. Though Tom Tom didnt break a sweat while cooking to The Bands Basement Tapes, hes said to have had some serious jitters beforehand especially since none of the dishes had been given a dry run.
