THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED O-Bar Restaurant Review

: Designers Thomas Schoos and Michael Berman (L.A.'s Koi and N.Y.'s Tao) created a whimsical yet sexy environment for O-Bar, their very own restaurant. The place boasts cabana-like booths draped in sheer fabric (great for celebrations), a bar conspicuous for its dazzling crown of white steel reeds, unique hand-crafted mobile-like chandeliers, and a view of a serene fire-lit courtyard. The imaginative design seems to beg an equally avant-garde menu, but the inventive takes on American comfort food work surprisingly well. Familiar homespun dishes are given some exciting contemporary touches, such as the warm goat cheese tartlet, the short rib "pot roast," unlike anything mom used to make, and pistachio-crusted yellowtail. The massive chocolate chip cookie, served warm in an iron skillet, is possibly the definitive version of this old American favorite.
