    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 impossible burger is different to the one at Momofuku Nishi, but it's the same "patty"

    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.

    Had an amazing meal here. Definitely get the kangaroo, the curry coconut laksa and the rainbow trout with a side of carrots.

    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.

    Great atmosphere and a couple of killer dishes. But Kerala the food was just good and service could have been a bit more attentive.

    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 Vegemite-braised Australian lamb neck is definitely something different but oh so delicious! Served with parmesan polenta, buttered toast crumbs and Brussels leaves.

    Kangaroo carpaccio with eggplant capanatina, fennel and upland cress is an excellent way to start off your meal.

    Not a lot of vegetarian options, the one I ate was really good but another vegetarian in my company only got a simple and small salad because of carrot allergies.

    Turkish eggs here is a must. The waiters are so nice and attentive. The place has a special vibe and strongly recommend the brunch on Saturday.

    Lovely open space, hip, quality food and drinks for a splurge night. Take a turn in the Elizabeth Street Garden before dinner or after brunch. Impress your date or out of town visitors.

    Some of the fusion dishes were more strange than genius. Great food, but not quite the experience I expect from a Michelin star restaurant.

    Pricey but good. Not sure if it warrants the 1 Michelin star. But kangaroo carpaccio was awesome. And the 2 rounds of free dessert at the end made it well worth it!

    Pretty great cocktails here. My advice: start with a "bourbon old fashioned" (not on menu, ask for it) and then switch over to their custom version, "The Re-Fashioned".
