MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

With its stunning location in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, complete with an eye-popping view of the Manhattan skyline, a visit to this landmark calls for dressing up (in fact, jackets are still required for gentlemen). While the atmosphere and service are formal by today’s standards, the professional waitstaff operate with such poise that the experience exudes an old-school charm, rather than feeling starchy. The setting makes this a perpetual favorite for romantic couples, and the ample prix fixe menu offers choices like gnocchi made from Brooklyn ricotta, sauced with beurre noisette and truffles, or wild sea bass with a lobster-studded potato croquette. The chocolate Brooklyn bridge is the iconic house dessert; but the goat cheese cheesecake is equally classic.
