This dud, situated atop the Museum of Arts & Design with breathtaking views of Central Park, delivers pricey, creative fare that too often falls short of its lofty mark. A foie gras torchon, too assertively flavored with sugar and nutmeg, comes with an overly sweet quince chutney. Duck breast in another overthought dish—featuring quinoa, corn, brussels sprouts, and an astringent orange juice and raspberry-vinegar sauce—is underseasoned and sports flaccid skin. Desserts are as much of a mixed bag as everything else: bomboloni are the size of baseballs and nearly as dense.

Loved this spot! Great view of Central Park and Broadway, and really good food, at more affordable prices to the restaurants in the nearby Time Warner centre.  Heading into the museum after dark, you feel like you're in on a secret no one else knows about - definitely worth a visit!
