    The décor is absolutely stunning, and it doesn’t outshine the excellent food. Try Fluke Sashimi, Kasha and Bowtie Pasta with Veal Meatballs and the Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sundae.

    An absolute design/decor standout with extraordinary local, sustainable, and organic offerings. The peekytoe crab toast, the kabocha toast, the bass and the ice cream sundae are out of this world.

    Brunch? Get the Varun 3 course dessert tasting menu: doughnuts, French toast, salted caramel sundae. You're young. Enjoy yourself. You'll have years to recover.

    Varun Shetty · January 26, 2013

    The food, especially the daily “Market Table” specials, is seriously delish. We like to come with a few friends for a long lunch of sampling small plates. Read more · January 20, 2012

    Mushroom pizza goes down in history and I don't even need to mention the level the salted caramel sundae reached. Sashimi caught me off guard - spot on.

    Can we talk about the salted caramel sundae? Yes, there’s caramel-coated popcorn and peanuts on it. Yes, it’s sitting in a pool of hot fudge sauce. Yes, it’s famous for a reason.

    Dan Kluger's menu walks just the right line of classic and inventive, is always seasonal, and is served in a stunningly designed dining room. One of our favorite all-around spots in the city.

    Mushroom pizza with egg is top notch, as is the burger. To start, def get the toast with ricotta and strawberry spread! Close it out with the sundae - off the charts!

    The multitalented Jean-Georges Vongerichten picks up the farm-to-table locavore zeitgeist and runs with it, resulting in a menu to make Californians envious.

    If you don't have a reservation, try showing up when they open at 5:30 and vie for a spot at the bar. Drink until you're hungry.
