This restaurant is the crowning jewel to ONE65, the Financial District’s six-floor edifice to fine French cuisine. With a bakery, bistro and bar right below it, the dining room begins on the fifth floor—where you’ll find a modern design focused on the four elements and featuring cozy grey banquettes. Just above it, on the sixth floor, is the state-of-the-art kitchen, a chef’s table for eight guests, and a few private dining rooms.
Chef Le Tohic's prix-fixe menu is composed of ten outstanding courses that may pair classic French techniques with pristine Californian ingredients. Exquisite sauces work their way into this rotating lineup that begins with a generous trio of caviar with freshly baked breads; and ends with an enticing mignardise cart, starring bite-sized bon bons, pâte des fruits, cakes and so much more.
In between, you might find such highlights as a strikingly intricate zucchini cannelloni—its alternating green and yellow ribbons filled with diced zucchini and garnished with crisp tempura flowers; or succulent lobster in Chambertin sauce with pickled onions. A separate plate of more tender lobster, tangy purple cabbage and pepper berry bearnaise simply augments this already decadent dish.
