Expanded seating and a rooftop terrace aren't the only new developments in this ultra-romantic Sutton Place townhouse. Co-owner and executive chef Wayne Nish has shed his obsession with Japan and found a new exuberance with a little more cream and butter. The tasting menu begins in a truffly, buttery haze of vegetable fricasse, then segues into the tenderest Muscat-scented lobster on lobster polenta, before climaxing in wonderfully rustic loin of Colorado lamb. Don't forego dessert.Pre-Theater Menu
