This modern, elegant dining room displays the virtues of symmetry, with not so much as a chair pushed out of its proper place. Everything is custom made, from the staff’s Todd Snyder suits to the handblown water vases. It's all evidence of Chef Daniel Humm’s masterful precision that extends through the cuisine as it artfully unfolds before each guest.Cocktails are a must and the program features expertly crafted sips highlighting a range of botanicals including green tomato, yuzu or sesame. The Manhattan Cart tempts diners with a bespoke version of the classic cocktail prepared tableside. The menu beams with impressive creativity, as in snails roasted in a bundle of young lettuce; and duck lacquered with honey and lavender. Classic New York remains a noteworthy theme as displayed by a smoked sturgeon-topped savory cheesecake with a bagel crumb crust that pays homage to the city's appetizing shops. Specialties arrive by trolley, perhaps bearing a shaved truffle-topped flatbread brushed with aged-cheddar sauce, which when removed goes on to reveal stuffed wild mushrooms in an intense broth. Desserts, like the Meyer lemon, black sesame and yogurt composition, are utterly modern.
