AAA Inspector Notes
An exquisite museum sculpture garden provides this restaurant a timeless, cosmopolitan and relaxed setting for a most splendid meal. The prix-fixe menus focus on seasonal, high-quality ingredients to enhance the preparation of foie gras, lobster, duck, caviar or bone marrow-crusted beef. The wine list is ample, and desserts are, like the setting, wonderfully artistic. The room buzzes with an A-list clientèle of New Yorkers and visitors, alike. The more casual Bar Room serves a lunch most days. Chef Thomas Allan adds his own signature New American touch while the staff is a pleasing blend of professional, enthusiastic young servers and a highly knowledgeable old guard.
