New York, New York
June 28, 2001
Tucked on a small quiet street in the East Village, you almost are surprised when you find there is a restaurant on the street. It is mostly residential. The space is white, very intimate, and small. The menu is very interesting. The kitchen is small and right at the back and within plain view of the tables. Service is good and casual. There are no set rules or clear definitions for appetizers and entrees. Start off with a selection of the small dishes, such as the roasted marrowbone (comes with a tiny spoon to scoop out the delicious contents), smoked duck breast prepared like pastrami, and salted jumbo prawns. These are great dishes to share though the portions are quite small.
All the dishes are good and the menu does change so I won't recommend any specific dish. In the past, I have tried the pork chops and lamb stew with success. Make it an adventure to go through the menu and try to imagine how each dish would taste like. You will not be disappointed.
Credit cards are accepted. Reservations are required. Only dinner is served and I would recommend booking early.
