Telepan Restaurant Review

: Chef Bill Telepan, who famously manned the stoves at Judson Grill in Midtown 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 black sea bass with wild mushrooms or venison fried rice in a five-spice honey sauce goes from the plate to the palate, your taste buds will dance. Lobster bolognese is a menu standout. Another fine dish is the monkfish with leeks and potato purée. The emphasis is on quality ingredients; would we expect anything else from the guy who wrote the book on the subject?
