I showed up for a dinner with a friend and it was clear as soon as we sat down that the restaurant was hotter than the muggy nyc streets on a late June afternoon. Clearly the air conditioner was broken, but I guess the staff was well trained to ignore it and not even apologize for it. People were wiping their brows throughout the night and I even saw a woman pour water down her dress!
The food was quite complex. It's only three days after my meal and I can't even remember what I ate. I think simpler dishes with finer ingredients might be the way to go just so it leaves a greater impression with guests. I do remember the foam. Lots of foam. Foam in the soup. Foam on the fish. Foam in the dessert.
I've been to about a dozen tasting menu restaurants in nyc, and although this restaurant was good, it's hard to compare to those with a tighter menu and air conditioning!
