Veteran restaurateur Drew Nieporent’s white-on-white sanctuary focuses all attention on chef Paul Liebrandt’s finely wrought food. Sweet bay scallops anchor a visual masterpiece, featuring wisps of radish, marcona almonds and sea urchin. Order the sweetbreads and a server arrives to show off the eggs used in the dish—pastel-hued specimens so gently poached, it takes less than a pinprick to unleash their yolks. Desserts are no less striking: Choose the riff on French toast, with brioche, passion-fruit curd, brioche-infused ice cream and a pungent smear of Stilton.
