Foursquare Tips

  • The brled French toast with smoked maple syrup is sooooo amazing. I would come back just for it.
  • The quality/flavors are exceptional for the price: $50 for 5 course tasting. They always allowed me to substitute my 4th course for 2 other proteins. +1!
  • Intimate and romantic. A perfect date spot. The cute chef and amazing small plates aren't bad either. -Jacqueline Lombard, Top Chef
  • Went with my dad for the 10 course and a nice bottle of wine. Had a fantastic meal and had a blast with the staff. Definitely a special meal.
  • When you are in NYC make sure you stop by with your honey & have a nice meal. !!
  • Def go for tasting menu. 5 course if you're hungry; 10 if you want to get fat.
  • the refined 5-course tasting is a great value until you see the 10-course. in my top 3 after all these years.
  • Sit at the chefs table and get the tasting menu with wine. Awesome to watch the chefs make your meal right there. Great food and wonderful service!
  • Try the seven course menu. It is a little bit pricey but it is totally worth it
  • Can't recommend this place enough! Small but not crowded, great ambience and attentive service. We had the octopus, Brussel sprouts, risotto, Arctic char and the Albario wine and it was all amazing!
  • tapas are only OK...but the torija is out of this world!
  • The tasting menu is delicious and a deal at $55. Get a different tasting menu from your date so you can try all the dishes!
  • You must try everything!
  • According to community contributor James Traub, "Pretty much everything is fantastic, both in the sense of wonderful and of pressing against the borders of conventional reality."
  • Squid stuffed with oxtail meat in beef jus/broth was amazing which was a part of the 10 course meal.
  • Skip a la carte and go for the tasting menu: a New York bargain at 5-courses for $55. The tiny restaurant seats diners at a counter around an open kitchen -- dinner and a show.
  • Definitely order the tasting menu and wine pairing. This is a great date spot, just like Jewel Bako next door.
  • Beautiful (but small and hidden) space. Do the 7 course tasting menu. Pricey but every dish was amazing, especially the creek brle French toast. Favorite was the fish in Riesling froth.
  • That $50 tasting menu is now $85. The better deal these days are dishes from the a la carte menu. The Brussels sprouts with Funyuns are amazing. The signature dessert does not live up to the hype
  • I recommend the Croquetas, burrata, paella, skirt Steak and duck. Skip the foie gras, they do a weird version of it with vanilla ice cream and cheese that does not work well.
