Dinner at Wine:30 in NYC

Nicole, Tracy and I attempted to go to Cask, but unfortunately there was a ridic long line and you can't make a reservation without at least 4 people.  Boo.  But we had a lovely dinner anyway at nearby Wine:30 and didn't have to wait at all.  Actually I made a res on OpenTable when we saw how crazy Cask was but turned out we didn't need it.  There were def people though and there was a cute and pseudo-romantic area outside in the back.  We shared everything and it was all delicious.  Definitely was full after but not grossly stuffed, which is a nice change ha. 
3 types of bruschetta.  From top to bottom: (1) roasted corn, black beans, chihuahua cheese, cilantro and lime juice (2) roasted beets, walnuts, oregano and feta (3) caramelized onion, goat cheese, and melted gruyeree.  All were awesome

Braised short ribs with mashed potatoes, red wine reduction, crispy leaks and roasted pearl onions.  The meat was super tender and the mashed potatoes were so creamy and flavorful

Seared hanger steak with potatoes au gratin, roasted asparagus and red wine shallot sauce.  The meat was deliciously tender and nicely charred.  The potatoes were even better than the mashed.  Did I mentioned we had a meaty dinner?

Grass-fed beef sliders with gruyere, pickles, onions, ketchup and mustard on brioche mini buns.  Served with house-cut Old Bay potato chips.  Another tasty entree.  The sliders were perfectly proportioned and everything that was on it added to the dish and I didn't even take anything off.
