BlackBook Tasting Menu: Thor, New York

imageJesi Solomon of Thor restaurant is en fuego. From the jalapeño margaritas to the chile glazed duck breast, he definitely brings the heat — sweet, delicious heat. Because we like his food so much, Jesi’s created a special BlackBook prix-fixe menu at a special price for BlackBook readers (just like our other tasting menu at Amalia). From now through November, drop our name to your server, and you can sample the BlackBook-tasted and -approved off-menu menu. Four courses, all-inclusive, for $28, with wine pairings for $40; read on for details and pics of the dishes.
