This stunningly good addition to the Barbara Lynch empire is quite simply wonderful. We started with a couple of wonderful cocktails (Italian Greyhound and 118th Occasion). We ordered and thoroughly enjoyed the Chef's 7 course tasting menu along with a bottle of champagne (Billiot Reserve). we did supplement with a small cheese course because the occasion (our anniversary) needed just a touch more decadence :-) What was particularly lovely was that the chef while keeping the main ingredient the same for each course, adjusted the dish for our unique palates (I prefer a more adventuresome style and my wife more traditional).
Having dined all over at some magnificent restaurants, it would be fair and appropriate to say that this made our top 5 (the others in no particular order: Per Se, La Pergola, Jamin and The Dining Room at Little Palm Island) by displacing No.9 Park (sorry).
The service provided by the team led by Michael was exceptional (thanks Lauren and Paul). My only recommendation is for the other servers who dropped the dishes off at the table would be to request that slow down their speech a bit in order to better understand the dish and its construction.
At the conclusion of the dinner, the staff was so very gracious to arrange a trip with seats to Drink for us (will review seperately).
Now, please note that food and service like this comes at a price so if you are not interested in making another mortgage like payment that month, don't go. If you are willing, you won't regret it and remember, you can't take it with you! Consider it a SKI (Spending Kids Inheritance) dinner.
All in all, a memorable time/experience to be treasured.
