Chef Scott Conant’s pastas, like plump duck-and–foie gras ravioli slicked with a rich marsala-duck jus, are as ethereal as ever at this cavernous middlebrow trattoria. But his tendency toward upscale creations shows when he tries for rustic dishes—a leathery shredded goat dish, for example—with inconsistent results. While he struggles to find a middle ground, pastry chef Gary Minos nails it. His apple “pie” features caramelized apples, brown-sugar streusel and a layer of apricot puree on an earthy polenta crust.

Perfection, Perfection, Perfection!! I applaud restaurants that serve amazing food. I had the black Tagliolini which came with a seafood ragout and it was divine. We also had the Duck & foie gras ravioli which I am still dreaming about, I did not think I was going to enjoy this dish so much. The flavors were perfectly balanced. Aside from the amazing fresh pasta we also had the veal tenderloin and dry-aged sirloin, which were both out of this world. They were both cooked perfectly and the veal was moist and tender. I will definitely be going back to try the desserts since I had no space for it after this rich meal.

This is the kind of place you go to and anything you order will be amazing. I got the spaghetti which was seriously amazing, like who knew a simple dish could be so good and flavorful. We also got the black cod to share and it was just as satisfying. One thing that does bother me however is that the portions are miniscule. I hate restaurant that charge so much for one plate and give you a half a teaspoon of food. With that being said it was totally worth it. We also got the chocolate cake for dessert and although I don't like chocolate the caramel ice cream was what dreams are made of.
