One if by Land, Two if by Sea

Rather than benefiting from the fresh touch provided by new chef Craig Hopson (Picholine), the staid eatery has subsumed him. Hopson’s attempt to modernize the menu translates into a lack of nuance: A cloying pineapple sauce doomed an appetizer of grilled sepia with Thai basil; John Dory, with an odd mustard-lemon-tomato chutney, didn’t quite jell. Even desserts faltered: That epitome of romantic sweets, the chocolate soufflé, was dense and dry. When love is blind, so, it seems, are palates.

Are you obsessed with the broadway hit, Hamilton? Go here. Do you love a jazz brunch with a perfect poached egg? Mmmhmm. Do you appreciate a luxurious wine list? Here ya go. Really enjoyed both dinner and brunch. Such a unique venue, it makes the most of the carriage house charm and magic.
