Fodor's Review

Locally born chef-owner Todd Gray looks to regional purveyors for hard-to-find heirloom and local foodstuffs at his low-key American eatery. The furnishings and the food are simple and elegant, and the fresh ingredients speak for themselves. Broccoli and fennel accompany silky salmon, heirloom carrots lend a fresh tang to rich bacon-wrapped monkfish, and nutty sunchokes complement the earthy flavors of Pennsylvania-raised lamb braised in beer. The five-course tasting menu

is available with a splendidly curated series of vegan options, as well as wine pairings.

Superb!

This place is not very big - but the service and food are outstanding. I have eaten here 4 or 5 times, and always been blown away. A very nice place for special occasions - or romance.

The equinox is off balance at Equinox

This was our first time dining at this recommended restaurant. While our food was quite enjoyable, the service from our waiter left something to be desired. He never applied the basics - no introduction, no review of the menu, no request for cocktails or wine, etc. All is in favor for this restaurant except the lack of professional and personal service coming from this particular waitor.

Food Glorious Food

Virginia Sweet Pea Ravioli!!!Please pinch me because I think I am dreaming. Out-of-this world. The tenderloin was like butter. The only 'eh' was the salad with pear. Rather mundane. But the fois gras and the red pepper soup! Delicious. We shared 3 desserts - chocolate creme brulee, some strawberry shortcake thing and a gourmet donut hole. I was stuffed but a happy camper. We ate out on the enclosed porch, not in the main dining room, and

it was lovely. Service was exactly what I would expect at a restaurant of this calibur. Would recommend, and would go back.
