This relatively-secret, cozy-chic refuge serves some of the tastiest upscale comfort food in midtown.A long, minimalist barroom—all sleek blond-wood paneling, chocolate leather barstools and exposed-bulb light fixtures—invites after-work hobnobbing; so does the wine list, with its impressive by-the-glass selection of New World labels (New Zealand sauvignon blancs, Argentinian barbera). Past the bar is a snug dining room, lined with pillow-strewn banquettes. Some of the best dishes whipped up by chef Kevin Cahill (who cut his teeth working for celebrity caterer Serena Bass) are small plates, which can also be enjoyed at the bar: the diver-scallop-and-passionfruit ceviche has a summery, fresh bite, and the currant-studded pancakes, topped with piles of barbecued pulled pork belly, may just inspire their own cult following. Cashew-crusted chicken is served with a warm, chocolatey sauce reminiscent of mole, and cushiony goat-cheese gnocchi is tossed with wilted Swiss chard in sage butter.Recommended Dishes
Currant pancakes with pulled pork belly, $5; sage gnocchi, $11; almond-apple tart, $8
