Tried their tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was very fresh and impeccably seasoned. The paired wines brought out the more subtle flavors of each of the dishes. Will definitely visit again during our next NYC trip.

The location on Central Park provides for a dining experience with a lot of natural light. The service is the best in NYC, very attentive and warm. The food is very good, particularly the pasta dishes and the veal.
