We were pleasantly surprised after dining here recently. The decor was unique, with mod plates breaking up the pale yellow dining room. the crowd was a bit stuffy and very upper east side, but the service was exceptional, very helpful and friendly. the meal was really incredible-- start with the yellowtail "raw" appetizer, then proceed to the gnudi, which was exceptional. we ended with a delicate chocolate caramel mouse. the wines focus on the med. region, with a great white from santorini. the only downfall was the french press cofffee. otherwise, highly recommended!
