    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.

    Best tasting menu in the city. Love the open kitchen and counter seating. Each dish stood out in its own way. Wine pairings were spot on--opt for them!

    Inventive and creative flavor combinations. The staff is professional but super friendly (more so than most tasting menu places). Awesome soundtrack. Worth the $$$.

    Reserve wine pairing is absolutely worth it. The temperance pairing is creative. The food, the music, the vibe -- all amazing. And, they have the coolest team working there. Say hi to Mike and Matt.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    NYC Foodie Blog: 10 course tasting menu for $150, The place settings, decor, and dishes themselves, all take on an "earthy" quality. Thought of as a unique dining experience

    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."

    reasonably priced wine, good soundtrack, not stuffy like other restaurants of its caliber. you can wear jeans and leave the blazer at home.
