Two for Tuesday: Appetizers

The Palm Restaurant‘s flagship and Xai Xai South African Winebar in New York City are two spots for killer apps.  Eggplant rolled and stuffed with creamy good goat cheese at Xai Xai:

I don’t know what kind of goat cheese this is, but it’s out of this world. I’m not a huge fan of eggplant, but the cheese made this dish. It’s smooth and creamy and blends so well with the accompanying sauce.

Jumbo lump crab cake with chipotle tartar sauce from the Palm:

This is a perfect crab cake, full of crab meat, not breading. The delish chipotle tartar sauce adds a hint of smoke.
