Fodor's Review

Bouley alumnus George Mendes's popular restaurant relies on his Portuguese heritage as inspiration,which he elevates to new heights. Although there are no bad seats in this sleek bilevel space decorated with wood, glass, and blue accents, watching Mendes work in his spotless tiled kitchen from one of the seats at the chef's counter in the back is undeniably exciting. Petiscos (small bites) like cubes of crisp pork belly with apple cider reveal sophisticated cooking techniques and flavors. A delicate matsutake mushroom broth floated with a slow-poached egg is edged with a subtle brace of pine, while sea-salted cod reveals a deep, satisfying flavor strata.
