Small Plates on 55th: Ebb & Co.

First noticed this new place a few months ago and finally got a chance to experience their offerings. I wish I hadn’t taken so long! They have a rotating menu of small plates that you can dine in to experience or take home to prepare. Note: the dining area is on the small side.

The choice the week I visited was a delicious stew of little neck clams from Taylor Shellfish Farms in a stew of white wine, saffron, fennel and Rockwell beans. All locally sourced….of course. The stew was accompanied by a kale Caesar salad with inhouse made sourdough bread. A word about the bread….outstand and perhaps the best I’ve ever had. It’s a must experience.

We prepared it at home which was quick and easy with the included instructions.

Now to the wine: an orange Chardonnay which was an outstanding pairing with the main dish. I’m beginning to look for orange wines and this example from near Vienna was exceptional. Unoaked with notes of orange peel with a slight tartness. You’ve never had a Chardonnay like this.

Now that I’ve run out of accolades for this little spot near U Village….you have to give it a try.

Open Thursday through Saturday 12-6
