The Michelin Men
Three of the biggest names in food touch down in New York this fall.
• L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at Four Seasons Hotel New York, 57 E. 57th St., nr. Madison Ave. (212-350-6658).
• Park Chinois at Gramercy Park Hotel, 2 Lexington Ave., at 21st St.; November.
• Gordon Ramsay at the London NYC, 151 W. 54th St., nr. Seventh Ave.; November.
Keith McNally and Jody Williams
The (happily) imperfect match.
• Morandi, 15 Charles St., nr. Seventh Ave. S.; November.
No longer relegated to post-meal status, fanciful desserts have become the main attraction at newfangled lounges like ChikaLicious and Room 4 Dessert.
If last fall’s restaurant buzz was all about Tenth Avenue, this year the flash and dazzle gravitate to the West Village’s Seventh Avenue South stretch.
The Best of the Rest
Steaks, seafood, and kangaroo-carpaccio nachos.
