Flatiron 1771 in Uptown BGC recently opened and so one fine Tuesday, my sister and I decided to spend the day here. For one, I heard that the internet speed at Uptown BGC was insane and two, I am always up for great food.
The first thing we tried was the Salmon Cake. As you all know, I am a sucker for salmon and so this was a double edged sword for me. I love Salmon but I also have high expectations set for salmon. This was either an "OMIGOD I LOVE IT" moment or "SERIOUSLY? WHAT IS THIS CRAP?" moment.
This was an "OMIGOD WHAT IS THIS I TOTALLY LOVE IT!!!!" moment. Seriously. The salmon cake was just so awesome. Even though I could see the oil because it was fried I didn't care. It was just oh so good. The combination of the lemon dill ranch sauce was just amazing! A-MA-ZING!
The next one we tried was their pizza. After all, they boast of being a New York style place and pizza in New York is one of the best things. We had the Salbacho Pizza which is a thin crust pizza with salami, bacon, chorizo, plum tomatoes, basil, and parmesam. I honestly did not have high hopes for this because it was thin crust and I loved my thick crust pizzas. Surprisingly, it was good. I actually found myself nodding my approval and that's pretty rare for me. I think it's the chorizo bits that really did it for me and the sauce that they used. It gave off a barbecue feel to it which I loved.
Finally we had some of the main course and we opted to try their Chinese Chicken BBQ and the Battery Park Pork Chop. I loved the chicken because it was very tasty. The pork chop not so much unless you dip it in the sauce then it becomes great.
Now this is the best part about our dining experience. We were given the chance to have a bite of the upcoming Intense Brownie Burger by Chef Kirk. This is swiss fudge brownies with espresso ice cream in the middle then drizzled with praline cashew and topped with chocolate and tofee sauce placed in a pan of cream cheese sauce. Whew! This was over the top. It is seriously, seriously one of the best desserts that I have tried. The brownies are heavy enough to fill you and the espresso ice cream definitely wakes you up.
Overall I'd give Flatiron 1771 4.5 stars out of 5. Great ambiance, awesome food, and cost that is not over the top. Go ahead and visit them at the ground floor of Uptown Mall BGC.
