Hardly ever, if ever, do I rate anything overall as excellent as there are almost always enough little details that derail me from such rating. This, however, is one of the times that a place earned an excellent overall rating from this end, and it is all based on the food. From the time we arrived, to the time when we had half a drink at the nice bar until we were promply seated (we took the other half to the table, of course), to the appetizzers, to dinner and dessert, this restaurant is A # 1. We were a party of 5 and everyone was more than pleased with the food. We tasted most of each other plates as everyone was raving about each plate. The carpacio was very good and the Octopus is to die for. The soft shell crabs were exquisite and so on. Dessert was great and some cookies brought to the table were wonderful. Ah, and the lobster raviolis and the sauce on these were out of this world.
While I like to try new places, I do return to those that are memorable. This was memorable and I will be certain to return on my next New York visit. I recommend this restaurant, no questions asked.
Also, we went to a 9:30 reservation and had no trouble finding taxis when we came out.
Our most enjoyable dinner on the Mothers' Day week end.
