MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Chef William Bradley continues to flaunt his impressive skills at this iconic, standard-setting dining room, and his talents are more tangible now than ever before. Whether you opt for a tasting of five or ten courses, you’ll be blown away by his finessed presentations, which encompass global flavors without ever feeling pretentious or trite.

Addison's menu while constantly evolving also retains the chef's signatures—like that artichoke au gratin layered with whipped parmesan, potato purée and shards of sourdough. Other enticing plates include a beautifully bronzed squab matched with creamy liver pâté sealed in beet and blackberry gelatin. Of course, there’s always a playful element, as seen in a plate of “chips and dip” featuring tissue-thin potato ribbons with saffron-lemon crémeux.

The rarefied mien of its surroundings suits this food beautifully, with marble columns and inlaid floors. Service is at its peak, combining genuine hospitality with gracious pacing. In lieu of dessert, meals may conclude with one of the best cheese carts around town, allowing guests to select four favorites from an outstanding array of over two-dozen options.
