Description

Village Voice's Description

This is Jehangir Mehta's follow-up to Graffiti, located on the ground floor of the Duane Street Hotel. Small plates keep company with larger, main dish portions on the menu, and eclectic influences fly--you might eat simple shrimp kabobs seasoned with Indian kalonji seeds, or slurp oysters encrusted with pop rocks. The lamb shank in an aromatic, sweetish masala paste is a good choice, as is the coarsely chopped beef tartare with avocado sorbet.

Tips from foursquare

  • The food here is ok. Nothing stands out. As far as NYC restaurants go, this is a fail. Cute atmosphere though.

  • Christene D. on 12/31/10

    The breakfast server is so cute ;P

  • Noel L. on 11/11/10

    Definitely order the Truffle Goat Cheese Crab Pizza! The Coconut Chili Fizz cocktail is great too.

  • Guillaume G. on 11/10/10

    Oh boy, where to start, where to stop? The crab pizza is excellent, the foie gras really good, the cod amazing... Oh yes, the real revelation: the waiter are SUPER-CUTE !!! ;)

  • You may recognize Chef Jehangir Mehta from his appearances on Iron Chef America & Next Iron Chef. He's a CIA alumnus!
