At Gilt, the highbrow restaurant in the Villard Mansions, another accomplished, well-traveled sideman, Justin Bogle, follows Christopher Lee of Daniel and Jean-Georges, and Paul Liebrandt, a temperamental English auteur known for his experimental emulsions and foams. I've always admired Liebrandt's cooking, but under Bogle, the kitchen has a more settled, steady feel. Like his predecessor, the young chef has a fondness for esoteric ingredients, but tends to use them in a more restrained way.
Three-course dinner, $89; five-course dinner, $120
