Keith and I ate at the Betsy on a hot summer evening. We decided to eat lightly, and just order a few of the small plates to share. We enjoyed the Buffalo Chicken Croquettes served with blue cheese and hot sauce; Mac & Cheese with lots of black truffle Pecorino cheese; the Deviled Eggs; and the Ocean Candies - grilled scallops with green peas & asparagus.
The food was perfect for summer and we washed it all down with a gin & tonic. I adored the classic Hendrick's served with Fever Tree Naturally Light Tonic and sliced cucumber. Keith liked a couple different versions - one with lemon and the other with grapefruit.
All in all we had a nice little dinner on the colorful rooftop, and could see how this small oasis would be great to dine with friends. I hope it stays open through Fall, as I think the cooler temps would make the atmosphere a bit more tolerable.
