My wife and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at 343. Set on quiet tree-lined E85th street, its away from the crowds. We arrived without a reservation, but were warmly greeted and seated.
Service was efficient and friendly. They paid attention to detail: Crisp linen, polished flatware, elegant glasses, 3 types of rolls, high-quality butter and olives. All good signs.
My wife's vegetable tarte and my black angus dry-aged steak were superb. The steak came with a baked potato and sour cream with chives. Most interesting was the serving of still-in-the-bone marrow. You don't see this often and would appeal to meat connosieurs!
We shared a side of sauteed asparagus and their delicious banana pudding for dessert. Overall, delightful! Drawback: The menu is limited. Probably no more than 5 appetizers and 6 main courses (4 of 6 were beef. The others were chicken and fish). Despite this, we'd defintely go again.
Pros: Elegant dining room, Great Service, High quality food
Cons: Limited menu
