Foursquare Tips

  • Try the luxurious scallop and bone marrow starter. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • You know youre getting that butter-poached lobster, or the lamb, so work back from there, with wines to match. Oh, man.
  • Try a wine from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France (the AG Wine app covers both regions). Excellent values can be found here and wines will pair well with Michael White's delicious food!
  • The room is soulless, but Michael White produces some of the best haute Italian cooking in town. One of our best restaurants for 2012!
  • While the atmosphere is a bit corporate, the carefully considered assortment of pastas and fish is sure to please. Try the buttery Nova Scotia lobster ($40) or the excellent desserts.
  • Michael White's compromise between super-fancy fine dining and his more casual restaurants; it strikes excellent balance between the two.
  • Ask for extra donkey sauce.
  • NY. Another one of Michael Whites masterpieces. Must try: the lobster velout and rack of lamb.
  • This Riviera-inspired restaurant has an intriguing menu. A must try is their unreal "White Label" that adds new flavors all throughout the burger.
