This was a great restaurant and it wasn‘t easy to get a reservation for five or six people on a Thursday night. Even you have a reservation, you might have to wait a bit because the restaurant isn’t very large and it was busy all the time.

Street parking was almost impossible. You could pay $35 for 2 hour at a parking garage nearby. You could drive around the neighborhood look for a spot. If you were lucky, you might catch someone leave four or five blocks away. And that was what I did.

The restaurant was quite famous and the prices were very reasonable for the city of New York.

We ordered several dishes to share and a bottle of wine from Spain.

It was a 2009 Bodegas y Vinedos Alion from Ribera del Duero, Spain. I didn’t know how good the wine was until I checked the web later. It was rated 91 points by Wine Spectator and 93 point by Wine Advocate. Let’s just say that it was pretty high.

We had cheese from farms around the world, imported cold meat, country pate, roasted olives, and Foie Gras Terrine. We also have several entrées: duck breast, pork belly, grilled king fish, grilled scallops, wild arugula and  seabass.
