This afternoon I discovered a new delight from Dominique Ansel who first introduced us to #Cronuts.
Before that my favorite was Kouignman.
Now comes a very thin brioche with a chocolate cake inside and molten chocolate in the center. Delightfully warm and not so sweet!

I was disappointed because the duck came already all cut up and the skin was not crisp except for the dried parts of the leg. It was very fatty too.
The saving glory for the night was their friend rice and green beans:
|The fried rice was excellent with plenty of large pieces of shrimp|
The Grand Marnier shrimp was a bit sweet for me.
The place was nice and the food overall wasn't bad, but it's not the place to go for Peking Duck!!

Remember when I first talked about this when they first opened? For those who like authentic ramen, on the second floor is dedicated to home made noodles for the Ramen.

Located at the corner of Okeanidomi and Mokreondos Streets is a neat looking taverna where we ate on our first night. For the first time, I had Greek-style braised leg of lamb pictured below.
We ordered cheese zakanacki. That too was delicious.

Besides the irritating hostess who did not want me to sit in the front part of the restaurant but in the back where it was dark where I can't take good photos, my good experience at Umami was enjoyable because of the food.
My waitress was good and polite. I admit it must be the best burger I've ever had in the city.
I'm so glad to have ordered the famous truffled burger with truffled cheese and truffled oil cooked perfectly crisp outside and juicy inside. They serve the burgers with 4 kinds of small sauces:
'Just want to mention that when she sat me in the back, I called her attention to please let me sit in front so I can take good photos. She first hesitated until I said, I had a food blog. I couldn't understand why she couldn't sit me upfront for the same table for 2 in the back when there were many vacant chairs - at 3:45PM.

Yes, it's Taste of France in NYC once again. It's Sunday and in its 2nd day and I finally made it. It seems a bit more organized than last year. This is a much better venue.
They have several booths that deal beyond food but I am here for the food.
