Fodor's Expert Review Marc Forgione
Restaurant success runs in chef Marc Forgione's blood—his father was one of the New York food scene megastars with his 1980s restaurant, An American Place—but he more than holds his own at this neighborhood restaurant that continues to attract crowds for the ambitious, creative new American cuisine. The menu changes frequently, but whatever you order will be bold, flavorful, and inventive without a hint of preciousness. Meat dishes are excellent and well prepared, but Forgione has a special way with seafood. Clad in exposed brick and natural wood, the dining room is softly lit with candles for a rustic, romantic vibe.
