The American cuisine at this pricey Midtown spot would taste so much better if it were paired with less of a lobby ambience and a lively crowd (or any crowd). An endive and arugula salad with Bosc pears, walnuts, and Roquefort is a delicious starter to share; the generous portion would sabotage any single person’s appetite for their entrée. The pork porterhouse (good, a little dry) is served with a hash of potato and lobster—the latter almost certainly a remnant of a “Lobster Wednesday” that didn’t get the crowd they anticipated. Wild striped bass is substantial and tasty and the accompanying mushroom and tomato orzo is flavorful enough to stand on its own. An $11 after-dinner drink would almost be worth it if Etoile were conducive to lingering, but it seems almost selfish to stay when you’re the only reason the waitstaff is here.
