Sons & Daughters Restaurant Review

: Sons & Daughters brings a refreshing brand of modern romanticism to this intimate space near Union Square, with the exclusive option of a nightly prix-fixe tasting menu (beverage pairings are extra) that borders on indulgence. Dressed in an elegant, black-and-white palette, the 36-seat dining room exudes sophisticated kitsch --- brass-studded black leather chairs tuck into small walnut tables and dripping chandeliers sparkle above. Chefs Matt McNamara and Teague Moriarty are behind the creative, seasonal cuisine that offers selections such as a lobster carpaccio: paper-thin raw lobster tail sprinkled with jalapeƱo and pomegranate seeds. A simple herb salad explodes with flavor thanks to a triad of radish, fennel and parsley drizzled with eucalyptus oil. Roasted kabocha with dried fruits evokes Thanksgiving. Lush persimmon cake served warm is accompanied by fennel ice cream. Wines run the gamut, with selections hailing from as near as the Sonoma Coast and as far away as Lebanon.

Well Done!

Really enjoyed our experience. Sat in the private wine cellar room with a group of 8. Food was well prepared, loved the sweetbreads. Service was attentive but not really friendly. Had a fabulous sparkling rose from Alsace, excellent suggestion from our waiter.
