The much-lauded fare here means you will dine with those who love fine food and wine. The Italian seafood-centric menu has selections of extremely fresh raw crudo, delicious house-made pasta and more complex entrées that artfully combine the best of the seasonal ingredients. The contemporary dining room has closely set tables but is done with a stylish sensibility and a staff that knows how to work the room with effortless finesse and create a winning mood.

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 timeless, cosmopolitan and relaxed setting for a most splendid meal. The prix-fixe menu focuses 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. Chef Thomas Allan adds his own signature New American touch while the staff is a pleasing blend of professional, enthusiastic servers. A four-course lunch menu is offered on weekdays in the main dining room. The more casual Bar Room serves lunch daily and dinner Monday through Saturday with an a la carte menu. For a truly memorable experience, consider The Kitchen Table which gives you a unique viewing into the kitchen as the talented team prepares your tasting menu.Read MoreAAA / Ha Le
