OK, I work and live downtown. So I try to give new businesses a try. I was not expecting much - just a wed. night dinner out and I was completely blown away by how good this place is. 1) Winelist (I am a bit of a wine snob) and the by glass list has some hidden jewels that I had not even heard of. Waiter was very good at describing wines and tasting different options. I'd go back for wine alone. 2) Service - amazingly trained staff that you would not expect with such reasonable prices. 3) Food - what great flavor, They call themselves international fusion but that does not do it justice. If I had to choose between a pricey Tribeca restaurant ( price no option) and the flavor at this place - well you just have to see for yourself. I am so happy to have a place like this in lower Manhattan finally!
