Dishes pay tribute to Hong Kong cuisine and include noodles, barbecue, and dumplings at a stylish new restaurant opening in Westchester.
Goosefeather, set to open Tuesday, Sept. 3 at the Tarrytown House Estate on the Hudson by Chef Dale Talde of “Top Chef” and “Knife Fight” fame, will offer seasonal and modern Chinese fare.
Focused on the trifecta that comprises 90 percent of the fare in Hong Kong, the menu will feature a heavy hand on noodles, Cantonese barbecue, and dumplings.
In addition, there will be "staples and twists" on the classics in Talde's kitchen, said a Goosefeather spokesperson.
Unlike the other seven styles of Chinese food that most Americans are familiar with, Cantonese fare tastes quite mild and emphasizes using fresh and seasonal ingredients.
Dale’s food takes Cantonese fare "up a notch," utilizing unexpected ingredients like dry-aged beef, black truffles and more.
Among highlights are dim sum bites like Typhoon Lobster and Shrimp with charred lemon and garlic; Dry-aged Beef Potstickers with Chinese mustard-horseradish; and Prawn Toast with pickled chilis and crushed avocado.
Cantonese barbecue options are Char Siu Berkshire Pork Collar with grilled scallions and spicy mustard; Wind Sand Poussin with crispy ginger and garlic; and Dale’s Cantonese Roast Duck with caramelized hoisin, scallions, and pancakes.
Noodles and rice include Shrimp and Clam Noodle with Dale’s XO and chewy noodles; Crispy Chow Fun with Hunan pork shank, pickled mustard greens, and youtiao; and Crab Rice with jalapeno aioli and trout roe, to round out the options.
Large Plates dishes are General Tso’s Shrimp with smoked chili and pineapple; Steamed Orata with ginger olive scallion relish, Marcona almonds, and superior Soy; and a 40-day aged NY Strip with broccoli and soy-garlic butter.
Talde was a two-time "cheftestant" on Bravo’s “Top Chef.”
He competed in Season 4, “All-Star” Season 8, “Top Chef Duels".
Dale has also competed on “Chopped,” “Iron Chef America,” “Knife Fight” and “Beat Bobby Flay” and was the head judge on “Knife Fight” Season 4, as well as a guest judge on both “Chopped Junior” and “Beat Bobby Flay.”
