About a month ago, I went to Zoe for lunch. I got the portabello sandwich: slices of thick portabello on foccaccia, with rosemary aioli and smoked onions. The sandwich was decadently buttery and the smoked onions were excellent, but small, and spare.
The side salad was arugula with orange and fennel. All in all, pretty yummy, but it was definitely pricey at $11.95, and made me miss the $5 portabella pitas from the Baltimore Farmer’s Market, where the portabella is highly marinated and then slow roasted on the grill, along with thick onions, and then stuffed into a pita and topped with feta. I think feta with grilled portobella is a really super combination of sweet/juicy and salty.
Zoe is on 90 Prince Street, in New York.
