Heering at: “Vandaag” new restaurant

Address: 103 Second Ave., at 7th St
Phone: (212) 253-0470
If you haven’t been to this Dutch newcomer in the East Village, you’ll want to put it on the top of your to-try list in 2011. The setting is cozy, yet elegant, and the food is excellent. So are the cocktails, which are thoughtfully imagined by Katie Stipe, who imagines really unique wine, beer and aquavit cocktails, like the “Didly Fizz” — a blend of Flemish sour ale, bourbon, egg white, lemon and cherry heering. Still, the biggest draw is the super seasonal menu with unusual ingredients and outstanding flavor combinations, such as Russian kale ingeniously perked up with green strawberries, onions and caraway seeds. There’s salmon gravlax with a tangle of watercress, shallots, dill, and briny bursts of salmon roe and more traditional desserts, like chocolate pudding, meringue, and waffles.
