MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This beloved restaurant is a bona fide New York icon and high on most people's roll call. It is one of those places that manage the rare trick of being so confident in its abilities that it can be all things to all diners. You’ll probably leave happy whether you’re here on a date or to impress the in-laws; whether you’re closing a deal or simply lubricating the thought processes behind one. Members of staff—from the kitchen to FOH—are uncommonly attentive. The “Tavern” side is a prized spot for lunch, especially if you can sit at the bar. Want proof? Look no further than their soup and sandwich lunch special, which is an absolute steal. It doesn’t take reservations, so get here early and join the grown-up queue outside. The “Dining Room” on the other hand is for those who like a little more pomp with their pappardelle and truly comes to life at night. Focused on impeccable products, the seasonal menu is a perfect match for the warm, woody surrounds. This is creative American food sure of its footing and unthreatening in its vocabulary. Selections, like sea bass, pork loin, or even the cheese, display a refreshing sense of restraint, thereby demonstrating the dexterity of this kitchen.
