This post is especially for blacklashes who currently resides in NYC and loves Brooklyn. I had read about this restaurant a while ago in Amanda Hesser's book, Cooking for Mr. Latte and then again in a write-up in The New Yorker. I've visited NY many times and always ended up in Brooklyn Heights staying with friends who lived in the area. So to find a charming little restaurant in the neighborhood totally appealed to me.
Noodle Pudding is at 38 Henry St, between Cranberry and Middagh Streets. I took surferboy (sb) and some friends to enjoy a nice meal their first time in NY. This place did not disappoint. We had no reservation but got their early and were given a table right away. The waiter's were great and the warm butter yellow glow of the restaurant totally set the mood for one of those wonderful meals you have with dear friends.
For starters we ordered the Buffalo mozzerella, tomatoes and roasted pepper salad that was fresh and delicious. We sopped up the juices with nice homemade bread, added a nice crisp glass of Chardonney and I was smiling. The gnochi with sage butter sauce was delicious and rich it nearly melted in my mouth. We all shared a nice dessert, which for some reason escapes my mind. If you don't know the restaurant is there you can easily pass it as we did. This makes it even more charming. By 7PM the Mahogany bar was filled with neighborhood friends and family enjoying the great ambience.
