THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Aleutia Restaurant Review

: We are happy that chef Gavin Citron is generating good buzz amongst the new offerings in the Flatiron. Very modern indeed is this double-decked dining room where a lot of things come together: cold steel and warm suede leather chairs, wonderful flowers and wonderful people. But what excites us most is the well-balanced fusion of ingredients on our plates. Once you clear the bar scene and move to your table, prepare for an elegant gastronomic journey. There is no doubt that Citron’s days at Celadon and Aja prepared him for this new adventure. A most healthy grilled mackerel in light coconut milk, a calamari and fish sticks salad, a crackling duck breast and sesame basted confit with banana grits and adobo peanut sauce or a simple seared skate with green beans, herb salad and chipotle dressing make for a satisfying experience. All this fare comes with pleasant presentation, and the pastries follow the act very evenly: cardamom cappuccino float or baked spiced apple stack. The menu promises to change seasonally but chef Citron will be featuring a vegetable each month. Why Aleutia for a name you might ask? This island chain links American and Asia and just happens to easily roll off the tongue.
