Niche Restaurant Review

: This elegant restaurant started as a labor of love from the staff behind still-sorely-missed 302 West. The space is stylish yet approachable with sepia photography, wood accents and soothing hues. Serena Perdue’s seasonal New American cuisine includes fun, playful variations on what’s familiar: Thai curry salmon wrapped in cabbage, for example. The oft-changing menu has more hits than misses, as in the grilled pineapple salad with Champagne vinaigrette. Far from boring, roasted monkfish is served with Granny Smith apples, while beef short ribs are found with a green chimichurri. But it’s the silky basil buttermilk panna cotta that really gets our engines revving.
