THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Avenue B Restaurant Review

: Neil Stein's latest addition to the dining scene has a glittering marquee right on the Avenue of the Arts, and incorporates some theatrics in its d├ęcor. The huge marble bar is always packed, the lofty ceilinged dining room, in hushed brown and taupe tones has comfortable seating, and is divided into intimate spaces by wooden latticework screens. The chef, Francenso Martorella, comes from Brasserie Perrier and shares its sensibilities. Tuscan-style means that the duck breast prosciutto has a bit of foie gras on the side, there's oxtail ragu on a pasta, and there's grilled rib steak alla Fiorentina. To finish, homemade gelato is always a treat. The staff is well trained, as at Stein's other ventures (Striped Bass, Rouge, Bleu, Fishmarket), and will help recommend a wine from the excellent Italian list. Stein's restaurants always bring in the glitterati and visiting celebrities.
