MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Obelisk attracts a surprisingly young, casual crowd for a spot that has been serving a fixed five-course menu five nights a week since 1987. This is a fact that’s likely due to the restaurant’s warm, neighborhood feel, even if the townhome it’s set in could use a revamp. The light and seasonal Italian cooking begins with a bang as an assortment of fantastic antipasti is quickly ushered to the table: creamy burrata; a sardine served over a tasty Prosecco-braised onion salad; crunchy puntarelle salad with a creamy anchovy dressing; and a thin slice of porchetta with a crisp shell and rich, flavorful meaty center, to name a few. The second and third courses are overshadowed by the first, but the full experience is worth the two to three hours to enjoy.
