Degustation Wine & Tasting Bar
New York, NY 10003
Village Voice's Description
The 15-item menu of small plates touches on the tropes of molecular gastronomy. Three or four make a meal. There's an egg cooked at 147 degrees (the temperature at which albumen coagulates), a squid body stuffed with lentils and chorizo, and a savory mussel broth topped with celery foam immersing a fried artichoke and a Kumamoto oyster. The wine list contains several beguiling by-the-glass choices at its lower end, and watching the cooks as you sit at the counter is part of the fun.
Tips from foursquare
Intimate and romantic. A perfect date spot. The cute chef and amazing small plates aren't bad either. -Jacqueline Lombard, Top Chef
Put the menu away and just get the $50 tasting menu. Get the wine pairing too. Make sure you finish w the carmelized torija & a glass of the Jorge Ordinez
Skip a la carte and go for the tasting menu: a New York bargain at 5-courses for $55. The tiny restaurant seats diners at a counter around an open kitchen -- dinner and a show.
The brûléed French toast with smoked maple syrup is sooooo amazing. I would come back just for it.
The quality/flavors are exceptional for the price: $50 for 5 course tasting. They always allowed me to substitute my 4th course for 2 other proteins. +1!
