Chef Marc Forgione embraces his fate as the godson of American cooking (his father is local-foods champion Larry Forgione) at this homegrown eatery framed by brick walls and rustic cedar. Though the fare is inconsistent, the junior Forgione ekes out some successes. Halibut was anointed with an emulsion of tomato broth and lemon oil (think liquid gazpacho), and a juicy rib eye with chimichurri sauce, marrow, fried onions and hash browns was superb, if made too precious with a side of boutique salts. Forgione isn’t trying to escape his father’s shadow; his work-in-progress restaurant indicates that he’s running toward it.

Such a beautiful, romantic restaurant nestled into the charming TriBeCa neighborhood. Worth coming here for a special occasion - and if you make it known to the staff that you're celebrating something, they treat you like gold - and expect to drop a bit of money, though every cent is worth it. The time I went was over a year ago, so this may not still stand, but I believe there was a tasting menu when I went where you could try a number of dishes. Because the portions are on the smaller side, I recommend choosing that option so you can try even more of the delicious dishes this restaurant has to offer.
