Best Scene Cuisine
Aleutia
220 Park Avenue
212-529-3111


The Look: A glass-and-chrome sixties duplex Rock Hudson and Tony Randall might have shared. Rock would have lived up top, natch.
The Crowd: Flashin'-forward types from Lower Park Avenue. Downstairs, overcrowded same-sex tables; upstairs, tense third dates. But the food makes it worth the effort.
The Appeal: If they'd all shut up and chew for a minute, they'd discover Gavin Citron is a really talented chef.
The Meal: Steamed truffle dumplings, smoked venison on birchwood, cardamom-cappuccino sundae.
The Mistake: Thursday night.
