    Atera is one of the few restaurants in NYC to offer tableside matcha service (done in customized matcha bowls). The service is an intricate preparation, make sure to give it a try. Read more

    One of the best meals and most imaginative food you can have in New York right now. Worth every dollar and a fantastic wine list as well.

    Atera's 20-course tasting menu is an epic feast, offering four hours of pure culinary ingenuity. Make sure to stop by the lounge before or after the meal, as the beverage selections are also superb.

    Chef's Tasting Menu (no a la carte) is creative & delicious! Expect about 20 small courses. Service is wonderful too!

    Save room for the petit fours, which are just as inventive as the previous 22 courses you've eaten. – Green Guide Editor

    Exquisite. Nothing even comes close to it in all of NYC. I'm in awe of Chef Matthew. A true genius.

    There is no doubt you will walk out of atera talking about how unique the dishes are.

    Phenomenal!! Culinary Genius: presentation, flavor profile, cycle of service, & ingredients. Highly trained, educated & approachable staff, unpretentious, pristine & elegant. Bring your appetite.!

    Dinner at Atera can redraw the line between nature and artifice, with food that mimics living creatures (a razor clam made of bread), and deeply unconventional ingredients made into something familiar

    Your ~25 course meal will have you eating ramen for the next week, but cutting into what looks like a lump of coal to find it’s a beautiful slow roasted beet will make the price more palatable.

  • Kaydee B.

    Phenomenal. Only a lil molecular gastronomy. It's mostly trickery, like a "cracked egg." Interior is sleek...a real speakeasy. May seem fancy but music & staff are relaxed. Wine pairing IS worth it.

    Grub Street off-menu dish: Charcoaled Tempura Leeks With Strained Buttermilk. "People who order the vegetarian tasting are privy to dishes that meat-eaters won't get, like the fried-leek dish."

    The chef’s fondness for wild food is reflected in both the menu and the restaurant’s décor. When asked about the vertical herb garden growing in the dining room, a server once replied, “It’s alive.” Read more
