A Michelin rated (one floret) restaurant that has an incredible prix fixe lunch for $39 served in a very comfortable room with impeccable service whose attention to detail is exquisite. The meal itself was outstanding, actually we were really quite full by the time we dusted up our antipasti, but the flavours were so delicious we wiped down every crumb and morsel. For the serious oenophile they have an outstanding wine service that enables one to take advantage of great vintages. We were on our way to midtown shopping and opted for the simpler choices by the glass to compliment our meal.
The only downside in my opinion is the rather dour decor. The room does not have the sense of style of one of my all time NYC favourites Jean George, but nevertheless it is a must for serious eaters. We were so delighted that we are seriously contemplating the venue for an intimate family dinner in the fall to celebrate our wedding anniversary and they have perfectly sized private rooms to suit most events.
