The Tasting Room is the accidentally discovered downstairs room at 569 Hudson Street, home to Philip Marie Restaurant. The space has been fully renovated and returned to its earliest state as an 18th Century farmhouse kitchen complete with its original stone walls, fireplaces and window frames and will accommodate guests with customized menu offerings in its unique and unparalled space. The Tasting Room has a historical foundation that stretches back into Manhattan's early 1800's, through the strife of the American Civil War and the dry days of Prohibition into the future of American cuisine. The Tasting Room exclusively offers the acclaimed USA approved cuisine of Chef John P. Greco III in a setting that is unmatched anywhere and will thrill guests with its charm and comfort. Notable menu selections include the Wild Mushroom Stuffed Half Moon Pasta (with roasted pine nuts, basil, fresh diced tomato topped with ricotta salad,) Grilled Spinach and Artichoke Heart Stuffed Chicken Breast (with citrus sauce and garlic basil mashed potatoes,) Speared Dancing Shrimp (with fresh ginger lime sauce and wild country rice) and the Sautéed Double Pork Chop (stuffed with wild mushrooms and essence of white truffles served with garlic basil mashed potatoes and a molasses glaze.) Don't miss out on the restaurant's romantic dining option. Enjoy a private dinner for two in the wine room; a special room for two and only two with advance reservation required. No matter what the occasion calls for or your appetite demands, the professional staff at The Tasting Room promises to make your next dining experience truly unforgettable.
