#PeachysPicks #TerrificTakeout #NewYork #Manhattan @AmmosNewYork @AmmosEstiatorio Celebrate Valentine's Day at Ammos!

A most romantic getaway in the heart of midtown: Valentine's Day dinner at Ammos Estiatorio!
When Cupid shot his arrow, he was aiming for the menu at 52 Vanderbilt Avenue, just west of Grand Central Terminal: Ammos Estiatorio!

We suggest this menu should be your Valentine's Day aim too!
The menu in full is found at the conclusion.
The brilliance of the Seafood Ceviche will captivate your appetite, a direct route to anyone's heart.  As Ammos Estiatorio is lauded for its fish creations, the Ceviche is always a hit.  Accentuated with an edible flower, the finely diced tuna, salmon, Chilean bass and red snapper all team up in a marinated wonder of lemon juice, onions, cilantro, diced tomatoes, spiced chopped and Serrano chili peppers.  This spectacular refreshing combination will enlighten your experience to commence the capture of your heart.  The colors enliven your experience and it is exactly this vivid in real life: pictures are never edited.  Just as amazing as the Ceviche itself are the chips of fried pita bread, enhanced wonderfully with salt, pepper and oregano.  In fact, if you are looking for Superbowl Game Food we think this is dually appropriate for that as well.
There are seven options for both Starters (previously mentioned) and Main Courses and surely among the sublime suggestions you'll find your own favorite.  For our entree, we had Kotopoulo, which is Greek of course for Roasted organic half cut chicken.  The lovely bird is king of the mountain!  Expertly marinated in fresh lemon and fine herbs, it's sauteed in festive brussels sprouts and wild mushrooms, and it's a match made in heaven with the lemon potatoes.  From every angle it is lovely and every bite is moist, flavorful and ultimately delicious.
A bit of bubbly is exactly what the date calls for and may we suggest the French Moet Rose!
This classic bubbling blushing winner at 6.5 oz is a treat with any of the three dessert choices, and the Baklava is most traditional!  Mixed nuts are finely layered in phylo dough dipped invitingly in honey syrup joined by fig ice cream and a garnish of mint and strawberry!  Just the right touch on the most desirable day of the year: desire your best dinner!
Ammos Estiatorio continues to earn our Highest Recommendation.
