The chefs fondness for wild food is reflected in both the menu and the restaurants dcor. When asked about the vertical herb garden growing in the dining room, a server once replied, Its alive.

Your ~25 course meal will have you eating ramen for the next week, but cutting into what looks like a lump of coal to find its a beautiful slow roasted beet will make the price more palatable.

Atera's 20-course tasting menu is an epic feast, offering four hours of pure culinary ingenuity. Make sure to stop by the lounge before or after the meal, as the beverage selections are also superb.

Atera is one of the few restaurants in NYC to offer tableside matcha service (done in customized matcha bowls). The service is an intricate preparation, make sure to give it a try.

Phenomenal. Only a lil molecular gastronomy. It's mostly trickery, like a "cracked egg." Interior is sleek...a real speakeasy. May seem fancy but music & staff are relaxed. Wine pairing IS worth it.
