Obelisk Review

Come here for eclectic Italian cuisine in a setting so quietly stunning you'll remember it for years. The three-course prix-fixe, your only option, changes every day, combining traditional dishes with chef Peter Pastan's innovations. Representative main courses are lamb with garlic and sage and handmade ravioli with unexpected fillings such as arugula or suckling pig. The dining room is tiny and the warm and attentive service makes this feel like a hidden gem. Diners always walk away pleased with their portion sizes, even given the high price tag.
