Yogurt-Olive Oil Cake at Mas (la grillade)

Seasonal favorite rhubarb makes the cake

Everyone’s going wild about ramps right about now; but we love spring because of rhubarb. Chef Galen Zamarra at Mas (la grillade) uses a yogurt olive oil cake to showcase the lovely, seasonal fruit-meets-veggie favorite.

Olive oil cake
Poached pink stalks of rhubarb perch atop the spongy yellow cake, currently on the restaurant’s $28 three-course prix fixe lunch menu. Yogurt and olive oil in the mix make it moist, while a drizzle of almond crème Anglaise and candied Meyer lemon add sweetness and crunch and an almond streusel lends a crumbly texture. The entire combination evokes the Mediterranean in Manhattan.

Mas (la grillade) in the West Village is the grill-themed companion restaurant to the haute Mas (farmhouse) two blocks away on Downing Street. Much of the menu is cooked over a wood fire of oak, apple and other hardwoods. Its sunny sidewalk seats are as in demand as the seasonal desserts at this time of year.
