PS 450

When I heard we were going to PS whatever, I thought we were going to a public school pot-luck. But no, PS 450 is a swanky bar/restaurant on 450 Park Avenue South between 30th and 31st in Manhattan. We were intrigued by the Braised Short Rib Nachos.

The vibe of this pace felt like some Budweiser commercial gone awry. The bro factor was as high as the heels on the ladies. I just wanted to enjoy some nachos. But that just didn’t happen. The lights were dimmed so we couldn’t even see what we were eating. Maybe that’s a good thing because after a few bites, I decided we were just eating one hot mess.

First off. The price. $14 for nachos? And it was so not worth it. The short rib sauce was a pleasant surprise. I am not a fan of weird flavored nachos, but the sauce was sweet and complimented the salty chips and overloaded cheesy goodness. But the meat was dry and flavorless. It was in huge chunks too. So you would be munching along thinking you were eating normal ‘chos and then out of no where you would be gnawing away at poorly seasoned short rib. It was as if the meat had never touched the sauce prior to plating.

The toppings overfloweth at PS 450 and parts of it were okay. The chips held up their crunch and the cheese was the appropriate amount. Sadly though, the meat just dragged these chips down.
