Fodor's Expert Review Telepan

$$$ Upper West Side American

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The greenmarket-driven menu at chef Bill Telepan's eponymous eatery is heavy on the veggies (the seasonal vegetable starter wakes your palate right up), but fish lovers and first-timers should hook into the signature starter: smoked trout paired with sweet apple sour cream. Anything on the menu that contains eggs, like the "egg-in-a-hole" served with spinach and hen-of-the-woods mushrooms, is worth a try. There's the usual presence of foie gras and pork belly, but Telepan does seafood very well (try the scallops). For dessert, a crunchy peanut-butter-and-gianduja duo with peanut-brittle ice cream is sublime.
