This stunning midtown gem is quickly taking the dining scene by storm, and with Eleven Madison Park vets at the helm, there’s no question why.
Dramatic décor—think sultry lighting, antique mirrors and a resplendent central bar--set the stage for sensational dishes from Bryce Shuman’s masterfully run kitchen like delicate pieces of kale atop unctuous warm foie gras and what is perhaps the most tender slice of roasted chicken to ever grace the table.
The service is excellent, the beverage program outstanding and the experience, worth repeating over and over again. Pete Wells already gave his seal of approval, as have the dining masses, hankering for just one more bite of the lavender and lemon infused rice pudding—it’s divinity on a plate.
