Park Avenue Spring (CLOSED)

Manager Michael Stillman, chef Craig Koketsu and design firm AvroKO have conceived an ode to the legendary Four Seasons, except that the design, the uniforms and the very name (it will be Park Avenue Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer depending on—you guessed it—the season) will rotate along with the menu. “Summer,” for example, means sunny wall panels and ample clusters of flowers to go with the warm weather foods. Appetizers showcase produce (baby beet salad, corn soup) and seafood (peekytoe crab salad, fluke sashimi), often mixing both with winning results. Koketsu (who helped launch Quality Meats) nails the steak, but even more head-turning is a seared John Dory fillet, the fish’s clean taste brought to life by an audaciously rich combo of truffles (both slices and oil) and egg (poached with a fried brioche crust). Pastry chef Richard Leach, a James Beard Award winner, dazzles with a sweet corn panna cotta, complemented by roasted peaches and adorned Corn Pops. His very adult signature, moist chocolate cake and whipped mascarpone, suggests that Leach is as serious about sophistication as he is about play.

One of the perks of living in NYC is the changing seasons. If that's not enough for you then this is the place for you. Changing its name to correspond with the season, it offers an ever changing menu & ambiance. Drinks are made with the outside temps in mind. From spiked hot cider (mixed with your fav liqueur) in the winter, pumpkin anything in Autumn, refreshing cocktails in summer & flower infused for Spring. The decorations are def something to behold. Cozy lites give way to blossoming trees to represent winter into spring. Great food & drinks no matter if you're in the main dining room or at the bar. Get, stretch your legs & soak in the decor. Every detail from drinks, to food to uniforms are changing for each season, making this a place you want to visit at least 4x a year.

Superb restaurant. Inspired menu with such an appetising variety from the sea to the land. The octopus for starters followed by rabbit Wellington really were immense. Excellent wine list and service to match. Oh and the bar served some fine cocktails. Old Fashioned nailed it.
