  • 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.
  • Matthew Lightner's long-awaited seventeen-seat space has opened in Tribeca. Stay tuned to see if New York embraces this $150 ten-course tasting menu.
  • Two Michelin stars.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Undeniably my best meal ever
  • 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.
  • Best dinner (even for vegetarians) and truly impeccable service. Might as well have proposed to my gf.

  • Atera, Spring 2014 - 60 Second Tasting Menu:

  • Phenomenal!! Culinary Genius: presentation, flavor profile, cycle of service, & ingredients. Highly trained, educated & approachable staff, unpretentious, pristine & elegant. Bring your appetite.!
  • 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.
  • NYC Foodie Blog: 10 course tasting menu for $150, The place settings, decor, and dishes themselves, all take on an "earthy" quality. Thought of as a unique dining experience
  • All of the dishes are super creative. Paired with the slightly tongue-in-cheek, casual-but-professional service, this was the best fine dining experience I've had to date.
  • Love the deserts, and the aperitif!
