THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cavu Midtown Bistro Restaurant Review

: This classic, early 20th-century Midtown residence now sports a sophisticated new interior, one that has cleverly kept the two-story lead glass windows and other antique finishes. Recent changes in ownership and management have re-directed old Cavu, seemingly giving it new life. The new directions also mean a new d├ęcor, with emphasis on light-tan walls and deep-brown ceilings. Among the culinary changes installed with the new team is a re-focusing of the menu toward fish and seafood. On a recent visit, halibut--the genuine article---was served roasted and served in a fine broth with a medley of correctly cooked vegetables, the delectable flavor of fennel supporting the ensemble. A neighboring dining companion waxed enthusiastic about her breast of chicken, while her spouse was pleased with his monkfish. Cuban bread salad is a tasty take on the Italian original, and incorporates a touch of cumin in the dressing. Homemade sorbeti includes one that is flavored with Clavados and topped with a few sprigs of baby micro mint. Worthy ideas abound on this menu, making repeat visits likely courses. The wine list is an ongoing proposition, crafted initially to make good use of some leftover vintages. Among the adventurous inclusions is the Gruet sparkling wine from New Mexico. Soon, however, a new longer wine list designed to pair better with this food will be unveiled.
