Opened in 1986 by Gilbert and Maguy Le Coze, this award-winning restaurant is a respite from the Rockefeller Center and Bryant Park crowds in Manhattan's Midtown East. The menu focuses on seafood-centric, high-end French fare, all the work of the legendary, Antibes-born chef and co-owner Eric Ripert. The understated dining room is a study in beige, with white tablecloths gleaming in bright natural light from large, south-facing picture windows. The four-course, prix fixe dinner menu includes sauteed merluza with foie gras and turnips, classic Dover sole and "almost raw" first-course options like chilled Beausoleil oysters and wild striped bass tartare served with Champagne-mango reduction.
