AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): Magical how all the finest elements of food, service and decor come together! Absolutely love the setting among museum masterpieces. A definite wow!
An exquisite museum sculpture garden provides this restaurant a sublime, cosmopolitan and relaxed setting for a most splendid meal. The prix-fixe menus focus on seasonal, high-quality ingredients; sautéed foie gras, lobster steamed in spinach, bone marrow-crusted beef and Long Island duck are standouts. Service is energetic and diligent. The wine list is ample, and desserts are, like the setting, wonderfully artistic. The room buzzes with an A-list clientele of New Yorkers and visitors, alike. Chef Abram Bissell adds his own signature and contemporary New American touch, and service staff is a pleasing blend of professional, enthusiastic young servers and a highly knowledgeable old guard.
