“Take the journey to enjoy the view”- Jeffrey Benjamin
Union square hospitality group characterizes for their impeccable restaurants, amazing food and service, and delicious food, and this is no exception.
Upon arriving at the address, you have to be careful to found the right entrance, it looks like an office building, and given that you are in FiDi, most of them are alike. Once you enter there’s a lobby and they send you to the top floor of the restaurant.
The place is a ceiling to floor windows, with exceptional sky-high views of all Manhattan. The distribution of the restaurant is amazing and the decoration is a Gatsby aged kind of vibe.
The menu is a 3-course menu with a wide range of options: I choose the Madai Crudo that was particularly well balanced and full of flavor. For the second course, I ordered the Squash Risotto, and this plate was just delicious!! The buttery flavors and the parmigiano touch made this plate a sweet but tangy soft flavor that melts in your mouth of course, my favorite! But if I have to be honest, the dessert was also extraordinary, I ordered the Warm Date Cake, and it was outstanding, the tenderness and the flavor of this cake were their strongest attributes.
The sommelier and all the staff were super attentive and understanding, the drinks also very well planned and elaborate.
In my opinion, I give Manhatta, and Union Square Hospitality Group my compliments for the accomplishment of this place. I recommend you to make a reservation and visit this venue, I promise is worth it.
