    Hands down favorite spot in NYC. Been here countless times over the years and sad to hear it's shutting down due to neighboring construction.

    The grilled skirt steak and the braised lamb shank is the at to go. Such tender meat. Skip the kangaroo carpaccio, it only has a single slice of meat.

    Great atmosphere, laksa is good. The steak is awful. The kangaroo carpaccio is interesting. The octopus is just ok. The salmon is just ok too. Portion sizes are way too small. Would not visit again.

    The Long Island duck breast with confit sunchokes, matsutakes, apple puree and truffle jus is probably one of the best dishes you can order here!

    The kangaroo appetizer is tempting but not perfectly executed. Mushroom ceviche is very light and interesting, disperse the sprouts to all the bites.

    This place feels contrived. Public Mary while strong tastes underwhelming. Food sounds interesting and tries to be out of the ordinary but fails.

    Don't order the coconut pancake! It's so average. A lovely spot to get brunch though. Nice presentation.

    The Monday room is awful. Terrible wine. Awful service. They should call it the mundane room.

    We were dazzled by our experience. While most of the Valentine’s Day courses cannot be found on the current dinner menu, we trust that Chef Farmerie only puts his best foot forward in all of his meals Read more

    Turkish eggs for brunch. They vary a lot though - some days it arrives cold - so, you know- luck of the draw etc.

    The Food: Although Pork Belly is popular, it is very disappointing. Super dry, lack luster. The Ginger Pancake were okay.The Venue: Inspiring architecture and interior design - resembling 1930-1940
