Although we’re (overly?) fond of the luscious tacos and ice-cream sandwiches our food vendors offer on the High Line, we do occasionally supplement our diets with delectable food prepared by our neighbors. When our friends at The Standard Plaza tempted us with words like “pizza” and “tequila,” we knew we had to schedule a lunch at the open-air restaurant at West 13th and Washington Streets. To keep the memories as fresh as the creamy burrata, we filmed the whole thing.
The next time you’re in the mood for rosé sangria and gourmet pizza, stop by The Standard Plaza, at The Standard, High Line, at 848 Washington Street. Keep reading for a mouthwatering account of our visit.
”It’s 6 o’clock somewhere!” The Dolores has spiced tequila and sumac salt for kick. Pimm’s, grapefruit, cucumber and mint mingle beautifully in the Copa Inglesa.
Rich, buttery burrata tops warm bread—the table let out an “Ooooh” when this bad boy arrived. The roasted cauliflower and asparagus appetizers behind the burrata were less sinful but just as flavorful.
The carnivores in our group devoured the prosciutto, mortadella, and coppa. Our lone vegetarian tore herself away from the burrata long enough to sneak bites of the pickled watermelon at rear.
”We forgot to make room for pizza!” [Ed note: Plenty of room was made for the pizza.] When it comes to pizza, the Standard doesn’t fool around—they have a pizzologist on staff. The Greenmarket pizza is topped with seasonal vegetables in unusual, but enticing combinations. A generous amount of greens make for a flavorful white pizza.
Cheers! Visit The Standard Plaza for more info.
