THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Gaia Restaurant Review

: U.K.-based restaurateur Marion Abela’s ambitious premier U.S. venture pays homage to its namesake, the Greek goddess of the earth, by putting the purest and finest ingredients in service of innovative French cuisine. Chef Frederic Kieffer prepares his macaroni and truffles sous vide to give the cheese a creaminess that balances well the intense fungal aroma. With its fragrant saffron pan jus, the flaky-tender silver snapper filet is a nicely subtle follow-up to the pasta. And a comprehensive wine list doesn’t just trot the globe, it truly explores it. Meanwhile, as much meticulous attention is paid to Gaia’s décor. Vaulted, ochre-tiled ceilings and pillars recall Guastavino’s in New York City; an elevated alcove, fireplace and floor-length windows evoke the rustic elegance of a country manor; and Tony Chi’s warm cream-and-wood color scheme and soft, intimate approach to lighting is at once modern and classic.
