The owner collects unique butter plates, which are filled with creamy French beurre and adorn each tabletop. Everything on chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli’s menu shines: The seared scallops
with foie gras are delectable, as are the grilled halibut with roasted asparagus and a “squashy emulsion,” grilled spice-rubbed pork loin and pan-seared tuna. There’s an extensive wine list, gorgeous (and delicious) dessert selections and waiters who make recommendations enthusiastically and knowledgably. Butter up a special client, friend or sweetheart with an extraordinary, imaginative meal.
