MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

In this unconventional dining room adjoining Jewel Bako, Chef Marco Prins assembles a menu that combines his personal story with his culinary pedigree—from Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare to Spain’s acclaimed Martín Berasategui. The mini space is hardly enough to contain his talent, but the deeply intimate vibe feels very downtown and tuned in. Cleary chef driven, dishes here flaunt focus and style while utilizing a host of global ingredients. To wit—Arctic char is set in a bright orange parsnip beurre blanc and topped with pickled kohlrabi for a visually arresting combination; while a parfait of foie gras is enriched with pistachio crumbles and cranberry crackers. Then it's on to such creative plates as a celery root cappuccino bobbing with tender lobster; or Shigoku oysters with just the right pop of sweet and spicy nam jim. A spiced caramel parfait with rosemary-apple compote is delightfully tart and textured, and should be tailed by the Japanese Tea Service, unveiling cups of delicate green tea accompanied by mignardise. Budget-conscious diners should opt for the tasting menus, which offer a curated list of dishes at good value.
