Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

If you could build your perfect romantic restaurant out of thin air, it might look a lot like Fat Hen: Lilliputian and book-lined, with a cocktail window attached to sister restaurant La Brasa from which your drink orders magically appear. And then there’s an Italian menu lovingly committed to seasonal and regional ingredients. The menu changes regularly, but a typical meal might begin with stuffed mushrooms and fluke crudo before moving on to a Jonah crab and bacon spaghetti, or maybe the chicken al mattone. If you want to eat authentically—aka family style—the kitchen is happy to cook a four-course feast for the entire table.
