Restaurants, Mediterranean Midtown

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

You may have walked by Prespa on your way to work and never thought to pop in—it blends into the background in a ’hood already burdened with too many generic places to eat. Well, keep on walking. Though a chef with a decent résumé runs this Mediterranean joint (Jean-Georges alum Richard Farnabe) and the place is attractive enough, with plush banquettes and a soaring chandelier, it was dead on a recent visit. Grainy hummus with cardboard pita, undercooked scampi with risotto mush and stringy steak with nearly raw sweet-potato fries make it clear that it’s the food, not the setting, that’s at fault.
