Restaurant Review: Flat Top

flat topI recently went to Flat Top with my brother and daughter and we enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed it so much that I went back the following week with my husband and daughter.

The first time I shared the mussles as an appetizer and had the shrimp appetizer as an entrée with a side of broccoli rabe. My brother had the chicken dish which he said was the best meal he’s had in sometime. We shared the semi-sweet chocolate mousse for dessert which was yummy.

The following time I shared the burrata caprese salad which was delicious. I had the chicken dish which was exquisite. All were delicious but my favorite was the chicken dish and the bread pudding which I had for dessert and split with my husband. He by the way, also had the chicken dish.

Flat Top is a bistro that has been open for a little over a year now on Amsterdam Avenue. It is charming inside and what I also like about it is that it is not super crowded.

Can’t wait to go back and try some other tasty dishes!
