Fodor's Review

Rural French cooking with locally sourced, high-quality (often organic) ingredients are the hallmark of this upscale but refreshingly unfussy Midtown restaurant that's as appealing for a casual meal with friends as it is for a drawn-out romantic dinner for two. The artisan cheese and antipasto plates are appealing starters for sharing, as is a standout chicken-liver crostini with fennel, frisée, apple, and caramelized shallots. Among the mains, try the braised Niman Ranch

pork cheeks with green garlic jus, or pan-seared dayboat scallops with a celery root–sunchoke–bacon hash and a Meyer lemon–brown butter sauce.
