Fried goat cheese at Ecco

Available at Ecco Midtown !

There is a special alchemy that happens when goat cheese is warmed and drizzled with honey. At Ecco, balls of the tangy cheese are dipped in batter and fried, creating a thin crust around the soft, gooey inside. The heat slightly mellows the cheese's funk. Add to that the floral sweetness of honey and the spice of black pepper, and you get decadence incarnate. $7.?

STILL THE ONE: Ecco's fried goat cheese was featured in the 2011 edition of 100 Dishes to Eat Before You Die
