Telepan Restaurant Review

: Chef Bill Telepan, who famously manned the stoves at JUdson Grill and authored a book called Inspired by Ingredients, has gone from big and bustling to intimate with his eponymous Upper West Side restaurant. Telepan's refreshingly un-exotic menu might seem sleep-inducing at first. But once the wild sockeye salmon with lobster succotash and potato purée or the pasture-raised veal with spring onions and potato gratin goes from the plate to the palate, your taste buds will dance. The lobster bolognese and the simple, juicy “pork four ways” are menu standouts. Another fine dish is the nettle and lamb's quarter ravioli in a sage-butter sauce. The emphasis is on quality ingredients; would we expect anything else from the guy who wrote the book on the subject?
