It’s a bit glib to say we stumbled upon this restaurant [aka New York Institution], but we didn’t book – though it was about ten years ago. It’s had a make-over since then, but none of the food has suffered and it’s been showered with accolades. The Americans seem to have 4 stars to bestow, rather than the 3 that Michelin have to put up with, but it deserves all of these. It’s actually got 2 Michelin Stars – something about only really serving fish, or some such…
Almost Raw, Barely Touched and Lightly Cooked
That’s all you need to know about the quality of the food. And New York society on display. Wonderful.
Apparently one of the World’s Top 50 Restaurants for the last nine years…

Incidentally, the 2011 make over was by architects Bentel & Bentel – their site’s a bit slow and gloomy, but their design looks good.
