Fodor's Review

Widely considered one of the best seafood restaurants in the country, chef-owner Michael Cimarusti and co-owner Donato Poto elevate sustainably driven fine dining to an art form. The elegant space is the perfect spot to sample exquisite seafood with the chef's signature application of French technique, traditional American themes, and Asian accents. On Fridays during lunch, diners can sample the menu at a more reasonable price-point. Pastry chef Jessie Liu’s exquisite desserts are not to be missed. Obsessed with quality, Cimarusti maintains a network of purveyors, who often tip him off to their catches in order to ensure that the fish on your plate is the freshest in the city.
