MAZE by Gordon Ramsay

Being in NYC meant that I had to take advantage of the great restaurants they had to offer (and that Toronto did not).

To start off my trip, I decided to head over to a restaurant by Gordon Ramsay on the corner of 54th and 7th, Maze.
Chef Ramsay is one of my all-time favorites, so this was a must.
Located in The London Hotel, I was only that much more intrigued - for obvious reasons.
The hotel lobby was not as impressive as I thought it would be, but the restaurant was like stepping into a beautiful modern world.
We arrived a little earlier than our reservation so we sat in The London Bar while they got our table ready. I love the ceilings and d├ęcor!
The restaurant part continued the same theme as the bar. We were lucky and were situated in one of the booths on the side.

On weekends, they only serve the brunch menu (and not the normal lunch menu). Due to that, we decided to not to a set meal and just order our own main and share a side of fries.
I love how they gave us oil to dip our bread in, instead of butter.

Our side of fries - it was literally a side of fries... M joked around and said they were probably McCain fries that they literally just popped into the oven. Not impressed.
I was more impressed with the little cute Heinz ketchup bottles we each got! How cute!

Pan Roasted Branzinofarro, pistachio, lemon emulsion

What an amazing little piece of fish.
M really enjoyed this dish. I had a little bite and I'd say although the fish was delicious, the farro made the dish because it added texture. We were both disappointed at how we couldn't taste any pistachio!

 First of all, it never said it would come with a side of fries. Why didn't they tell me so we didn't need to order an extra side? Disappointed.
Nor did they mention that it would come with caramelized onions on top.
That cheese is also perfectly melted. Ah-mazing. 
Perfectly cooked to how I requested it to be.

I was overall very pleased with my meal. Although I ate it like a weirdo (aka without using my hands, nor with the top bun), I really think it should be eaten like this. The top bun would have made it too bread-y and you wouldn't have been able to taste all the amazing flavors.
If my stomach is happy, I'm happy.
