Fodor's Expert Review La Casa del Agua
From the street-level bistro, a dramatic staircase leads up to a small cocktail bar and dining room overlooking Fifth Avenue. A stone waterfall is the focal point of the latter, and an open layout provides nearly every table with a breeze from the water. Start with crispy scallops marinated in lime and served over Champagne risotto, then follow up with favorite mains like sesame-seared blue-fin tuna with Portobello mushrooms or cocinita pibil ravioli (a lighter take on Yucatecan achiote-roasted pork). Remarkably flavorful short ribs are cooked for 8 hours in black beer, Dijon mustard, red wine, and honey.
