Fodor's Review

Johnny Monis, the young, energetic chef-owner of this small, personal restaurant, offers one of the most adventurous dining experiences in the city. The multicourse prix-fixe ($135), which can run up to two-dozen small dishes at the chef's discretion, showcases contemporary fare with a distinct Mediterranean influence. Reservations open 30 days in advance, with phones open from noon to 4 pm. The menu famously changes daily, but buzzed-about plates include mascarpone-filled

dates with sea salt and succulent spit-roasted goat with pita bread. It doesn't come cheap, and it always goes better with the $70 wine pairings, but do expect the four-hour ride of your foodie life in Monis's renowned hands.
