Profile

This venue is closed.

After an extended warm-up at the downstairs cafe, Country's Geoffrey Zakarian opened the restaurant's upstairs dining room, with its open kitchen, glassed-in meat-curing room, and a couple of minor modifications to the original plan. The $105 four-course prix-fixe menu still changes every day. But Zakarian, wary perhaps of New Yorkers' persnicketiness, has thought better of serving one set meal family style. By greeting guests with a champagne cocktail and amuses, he still hopes to capture a dinner-party spirit, but his opening menu offered four choices per course, from the simple to the sophisticated. You can lead a diner to truffle-roasted sweetbreads, it seems, but you can't make him eat.

Prix-Fixe Menu

Three courses, $75; four courses, $89; tasting menu, $135.

Weddings
The David Rockwell–designed bi-level restaurant, helmed by Shlomo Kashy, can accommodate 300 for a ceremony under the Tiffany-stained-glass dome, with cocktails in the Champagne lounge and after-party in the coolly rustic café. Prices upon request.

Recommended Dishes

Spit roast chicken, $105 prix-fixe
