After having some mediocre meals during past Restaurant Weeks, I decided to give it another try this summer. My friend and I had reservations for 6:30, and we were seated promptly (yes, it is early by NYC standards so that may have helped). Although many other items looked enticing, we decided to go with the prix fixe menu. The beef carpaccio was excellent! Both of our entrees were also great; neither the fish nor the steak were overdone. Our server was well-mannered, and although we lingered around after dessert until 8:00 when the restaurant was filling up, we were not rushed to settle the check. I have to give props to our server for her patience. She must have been asked a dozen times a night what a hazelnut dacquoise is, but she politely answered our question and gave the same answer to the table next to us when they asked the obligatory question. Overall, great food and great service!
Pros: eclectic menu, good for conversation
Cons: pricy drinks
