Sharz Café & Wine Bar (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Displaced from its digs on Lexington Avenue, Sharz is now hidden in a cozy duplex on a residential block. Because the East Side regulars are swooning over Atkins, chef Sharleen Cowan revamped the menu, adding a mishmash of homey protein-laden treats. Her endive-and-cheese salad, shrimp curry and rich meat loaf topped with Dijon mustard sauce join the few pasta holdouts, such as penne in a creamy pink fennel sauce. Desserts are worth the carb splurge: a terrific butterscotch bread pudding; a biscuit-based strawberry shortcake. Many of the 60 bottles on the smartly chosen wine list are less than $30, and servers offer doubters a money-back guarantee on their recommendations.
