ZED451 Restaurant Review

: A cut above its churrascaria counterparts, this surprisingly intimate restaurant gets buzz on account of the roomy (and super-stylish) rooftop lounge with banquette seating that’s open weather-permitting (even in colder months). But the real deal, of course, is the food, which begins with trips to the aptly named “harvest table”; it’s where intricate salads get their own sauces, and meats and cheeses are worthy of their own course. The prix-fixe affair continues as the meaty onslaught begins --- rib-eye, buttermilk-marinated sirloin, lamb and loads of sausages. It's non-stop, especially given servers circulate with grilled wild salmon, too. It’s hard to imagine saving room for dessert, but the chocolate sampler is worthy for the salty caramels alone. Then again, you could linger over a sage-laced Hendrick's cocktail instead.
