Dining Out in the Village: A Double Delight Offered at Sweet Basil's BACA DOWNTOWN THE BROOKLYN PHttHARMONIC LUKAS FOSS MI SIC DIRECTOR and CONDl'CTOR HENRYK SZERYNG, vio H h MAYDA PRADO, So/moio \UiA-lJOBaS DEFALIA TaiAlK0\’SK\' Sinfonietia No. 1 {New York Q)innienioraiing ilit* Gmiposcrs l(K)i)i Animcnon El Anior Brujo \iolin Concerto in I) .Major BY KITTY SORRELL Sweet Basil, on Seventh Avenue South, just south of Sheridan Square, is a club that' headlines some of the best jazz talent in the world. The fact that Sweet Basil is also a restaurant serving delicious, reasonably priced food, is a double plus. On a recent visit, we were delighted to see the Archie Shepp Reunion ’87, featuring the great tenor saxophonist and his band: Beaver Harris on drums; Dave Burrell, piano; Cameron Brown, bass; Grachan Moncur, trombone; and a singer named Royal Blue. Archie Shepp is an extremely accomplished musician and his terrific group makes soulful yet highly styled music that is balm to the senses. While enjoying Archie Shepp’s first set of the evening, we sampled Sweet Basil’s menu, starting with the Soup of the Day, which was a hearty, warming potato leek, pureed and peppered just so; and baked mushrooms, which were large caps stuffed with chopped vegetables in a tart, wine- based garlic-sprinkled sauce. The menu offers a wide range of con­ tinental dishes including onion soup gratinee; sauteed escargot; clams casino, a pate maison, and mussels meuniere, served as an appetizer or main dish, a specialty of the house. The mussels are fresh, tender and enveloped in a sweetly warming lemon butter and white wine sauce. We sampled the special chicken dinner which was moist tender chicken slices smothered in artichoke hearts, pearl onions and mushrooms, indeed, a flavorful, gourmet taste. Herbed rice and al dente fresh vegetables accompany this fine chicken dish. Linguini Basil is the pesto dish; Spaghetti I’Amatriciana is served with tomato sauce, bacon and onions; and Taglierini Primavera is a fresh vegetables and pasta delight. For specialized tastes, there is Thai chicken and baked ratatuoille au gratin. Barbequed spare ribs are thick and juicy with barbeque sauce served separately. The crisp side salads are generously portioned with a selection of dressings; Italian bread and tubs of butter are served at each table. Lighter fare is available too. Including hamburgers and various salads. For dessert we recommend a very rich chocolate truffle cake with layers upon layers of chocolate cream chocolate icing on top, and an apple walnut pie with ground up walnuts in a creamy center, tart apple slices and a crispy crust. There are all types of international coffees and teas and an extensive wine list of California, French and Italian reds and whites. Dinner prices begin at $8.75 for some of the pastas to $11.95 for barbequed spareribs, to $16.95 for grilled aged shell steak. Hamburger plat­ ters are $6.95; a Caesar salad for two is $7.95. Sweet Basil is open daily for lunch, din­ ner and weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Sweet Basil, 88 Seventh Avenue South, all major credit cards.

With that admitted prejudice in I mind, I stopped by a leafy new spot in the West Village called Caribe — \offering Caribbean, Spanish and West Indian Cuisine.\ While I was not in the mood for the plat du Brooklyn, ^ did have a savory oxtail with fried plantains that will bring warm smiles to aficionados of this much under­ rated peasant dish. The huge portion of braised fork-tender oxtail came in a brassy broth that was g reat when soaked up with bread. Along with the chewy golden disk of fried plantain, the dish featured sauteed bananas, yam s and rice with beans — all for $5.95.1 s tarted with a delicious, Inky black bean sodp arom atic with onions and bay leaf ($1,75 a cup, $2.50 a bowl). Every customer gets a giveaway starter of inno­ cent-looking steamed green cabbage that deto­ nates on the tongue with hot pepper. Caribe looks more like a florist than a restau­ rant, With its Jungle of palms thriving in both din­ ing rooms, one with flamingo-pink walls and wicker furniture. You a re on your own when it comes to the rest of the menu, which features such dishes as Jam a ic a n - style curried goat ($6.95), churrasco, the steak in batter from \Little Havana\ in Miami ($5.95) and \jerked\ chicken (I didn't ask, $5.95). Caribe, at 117 Perry Street (and Greenwich Street), is a re­ m arkably cheap, laid-back Village restaurant with bandana-clad waitresses and good reggae pulsing from the walls. Cash only. 255-9191.
