We love a Brooklyn curveball: dining in a magnificent ornate room among New York's elite, noshing artistic snails, dry aged rib-eye and caviar.
AAA Inspector Notes
Classic. Highly acclaimed as one of the very best restaurants in the city, this spot melds extraordinary culinary skill with a touch of fun and tongue-in-cheek whimsy. This is a true experience—the lengthy meal includes a parade of imaginative and classic New York dishes like sturgeon, cheesecake, and bagels with pickles and caviar. The magnificent, enormous dining room, a reclaimed Art Deco bank lobby, is something to behold in all of its elegance and glory. Servers recite meal options instead of providing printed menus. Try Chef Humm's duck, if it's available. It's a menu superstar. This is one of the preeminent dining and social spots in town for the New York super-elite who are on a first-name basis with staff. Meals can be extremely expensive, but it's a must try if you are feeling a gnawing need to lavishly splurge on the absolute finest in Gotham.
