Station 1 Restaurant Review, Woodside
Posted by Foodnut.com
Why did we dine here? – Station 1 is a fairly new restaurant that replaced John Bentley’s Woodside location.
Former Commis chef de cuisine Zack Freitas is the chef. This restaurant serves a 3 course prefix meal for a reasonable $54 per person.
We were looking for a fine dining restaurant, in the area, and didn’t want to go with our default option Village Pub.
Insider Tip – Make a Reservation on Weekends
Cuisine – New American
Location – Woodside
Opened – 2010
Service – Station 1 had reasonable service with a friendly waiter. We did have to wait a while for refill.
Verdict – Station 1 serves up solid new American cuisine in a cozy location, that is fit for foodies. Their pricing is very reasonable, so if you’re in the area, give it a try.
Station 1′s Menu changes all the time and is based on what is fresh at that given time.
Free amuse of plutot with lime flavoring.
Fresh Tagliatelle – brandade, radish, baby mustards was an interesting dish with homemade pasta and a mishmash of different shredded vegetables.
Corn soup – poblano peppers, sumac (nonpoisonous) was a very sweet and clearly freshly made soup with intense corn flavors.
Wagyu Beef – crème fraiche potatoes, shallot , cherries included a large chunk of tender and perfectly cooked wagyu. We definitely recommend this dish.
Chocolate Cremieux – peanut, caramel, mascarpone was excellent. Definitely the best dessert of the 2. How can you go wrong with chocolate?
Complimentary apricot gelee finished off the meal.
OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Heritage Pork2 – butter beans, broccolini, romesco is a good entree for pork lovers, but we felt it was more like a pulled pork dish than something more detailed.
Buttermilk Panna cotta – vanilla, BlackBerry, lime look like a mess and tasted reasonably good. We’ve had better Panna cotta elsewhere.
Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
