MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Acclaimed Chef Jonathan Benno returns to the fine dining scene with this refined spot. Nestled in the Evelyn Hotel, this luxurious space highlights an art deco chandelier suspended under a large glass skylight. The staff glides effortlessly across the mosaic-tiled floor, tending to guests' every whim and fancy. The menu explores the area where Italy and France meet—along the border regions of Liguria and Provence—by way of three- four- or five-course meals. The chef's skill truly shines when he puts his practiced hands to perfect house-made pastas tossed in luxe ingredients, like garganelli verdi or risotto studded with meaty blue foot mushrooms and Piave Vecchio. Seafood is particularly well-executed here, as in the black bass with escargots in a garlic-parsley-and butter sauce, or the raw scallops with pickled and sweet kohlrabi with a hint of heat from mustard oil and a smoky pop from the roe. Strawberry sorbet topped with whipped crème frâiche tastes of childhood summers and cleanses the palate. Then, an exquisite wedge of lemon curd torta topped with toasted pine nuts makes the perfect finish.
