Originally opened by the multi-cuisine masterminds behind upmarket New American spot Tocqueville and the Japanese 15 East, who are no longer involved in the project, this restaurant is named after the French arondissement but focuses on American food. The Fourth features a comfortable coffee bar and café area alongside a high-end dining room with red walls, dark furniture, marble floors, and whimsically hung wood twin bed frames lofted over the open stairwell. In the dimly lit main dining room, the restaurant offers creative dishes rooted in traditional American cooking. Appetizers like fire-roasted artichoke accompanied by a cheese fonduta and grilled lemon make for a light start with bold, earthy flavors, while the daily deviled eggs presented on a wooden slab is a delicious two-bite starter. Larger plates, broken up into menu categories like “Starch,” “Seafood,” and “Livestock,” are equally delightful: The pink-salt-brick-roasted Amish Country chicken is juicy and pleasantly seasoned with watercress, shaved spring vegetables, and a chili-lemon vinaigrette. While the hake served with pork cheeks and a smoked hake brandade is a bit dry, the pork cheeks are fantastic. Likewise, accompaniments such as a creamy hache of ramps and spinach should not be missed. There’s an approachable wine list and a dessert menu that includes a caramelized apple and four cheese tart with oregano and ruby port sorbet rounding out the mix.

Café Quatrième

The Café Quatrième is the restaurant’s version of a European espresso bar, complete with homemade pastries and caffeinated beverages and is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. continuously, while the bar and 45-seat formal dining areas have full breakfast, lunch, and dinner service.
