MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This stunning debut, courtesy of Eleven Madison Park alum, Chef James Kent, is located in the landmark art deco tower, 70 Pine Street. The gorgeous lobby leads to a clean, sleek and modern dining room, replete with soaring ceilings, polished marble floors and expansive windows. It’s a feast for the eyes, no doubt, but the real star at this buzzy location is the exquisite meal to follow. To call the tender, otherworldly Gruyère fritters a “fritter” at all seems a disservice to the lightly fried choux pastry that arrives, piped with nutty cheese and dusted with lime and chili. An impossibly silky starter of white bean hummus is equally sensational, when paired with warm, fresh puffy pooris and topped with toasted pignoli nuts, roasted herbs and spicy ’nduja. Chef Kent’s menu is thoughtful and meticulously detailed, with an appealing selection of crudo, like charred carrot "sticks" set over sliced razor clams and surrounded by a lemon-thyme foam. Pastas and other mains also delight—the latter might entail flaky branzino arranged with green tomatoes and radish; grilled pork chop with Asian pear and mustard; or roasted short rib for two, with braised ends, quinoa and chimichurri.
