The restaurant isn’t much bigger than a subway car—which is appropriate, given that it’s named after the A train. The tiny place quickly fills up with alluring aromas—and patrons. The refined, all-organic menu makes stops in Europe, Africa and Latin America, with dishes like mango-marinated duck confit; sautéed summer squash with white beans in a creamy coconut sauce; and quail pâté topped with Brie and drizzled with truffle rum. The MTA should take note of the startlingly reasonable prices: This place actually deserves a fare hike.
