    D-lish!

    Bobby Flay has struck gold again! Started with a gooseberry cocktail (very heavily poured - let it water down a bit for the best taste) and three apps. The shellfish appetizer tasting - of which all three were very, very good - the crab was outstanding! Followed with the artisanal ham tasting, which was displayed well and tasted good, but lacked a description from our waitress when it was delivered to our table - it was hard to tell if the three hams were different or not. Last app - Crawfish & Dungeness Crab Griddle Cake - was OK, but not phenomenal. For an entree we split the Skate served w/hominy cake side. The combo was wonderful - Skate was succulent and a bit spicy while the hominy balanced the spiciness. Based on other reviews - the ?clairs were a must for dessert and definitely delivered. It's true - they are a must have. The atmosphere was annoying as we were seated near the bar (very loud), which seemed to be the only place for tables for two. Also would have been better if they served the three apps at the varied times given that we were at a very small table for two. The waitress indicated the kitchen is very particular about serving the food.

    The man can do no wrong

    Everything was excellent. For dessert we shared the whiskey eclairs, it came with a caramel bourbon sauce that I just wanted to drink straight. Don't leave this restaurant without having this dessert.

    Business Dinner

    The side dishes and main courses came out at completely different times.

    It's a start

    While the meal was good - it wasn't extra-ordinary. Especially if you are a foodie. The waiter was nice tho' a bit too chatty - he asked if we were seeing a show (yes), then he kept talking to us instead of putting in the order. We enjoyed the cocktails and the waiter was knowledgable about wines. The trout salad wasn't great - not much flavor, lacking the smokey taste expected. Enjoyed the onion soup - good comfort food! The duck entree was too salty. The lamb was good though the cut not the most tender but seared to perfection. The sweet potato side was yummy, yummy; the peas unexciting (they are not in season yet!) The trout entree was tasty and enjoyable. The rib-eye was fine but rather boring presentation. The cauliflower side and the fries were a big hit. No time for dessert - Regret I didn't get the seafood "flight", wish the waiter had recommended it!

    A Great Experience!

    Didn't know what to expect, since the restaurant is new. We had dinner on May 23rd. The service was excellent. The food was great - the raw bar sampler was awesome. The cornbread was absolutely the best I've eaten. Vidalia onion soup, corn with chile's and griddled mushrooms were great. I can still taste the lemon brulee - wonderful, as was the carrot pineapple cake. This is definitely on my list nest time I visit NYC.

    What a Fabulous dinner

    After eating at Bobby Flay's other 2 restaurants, I couldn't believe that he could out do himself -but he did. The wait staff was delightful, helpful, attentive and fun. Very creative and potent potables to begin - that gooseberry cocktail was heaven! The only problem was picking from a well thought out menu...the potato chips with blue cheese were yummy, ultra free raw bar - loved those oysters, the side dishes - cauliflower and creamed corn were devoured, and our 6 main courses were each better than the next from the duck to the filet mignon. Desserts were excellent also - especially the chocolate raspberry souffle. It was also a rare treat to see Bobby Flay there as well working in the kitchen and meeting the guests. This place is a winner - can't wait to go back - if I can get a reservation!

    Dinner for 5

    After my daughter and her friends raved about their experience a week ago, I visited the restaurant pre-theatre on April 27 with 4 of my very critical girlfriends. We unanimously gave the restaurant a thumbs up rating. We all loved our various appetizer salads and dinners of hanger steak, skate, snapper, and salmon all past the test. Our side dishes of potato chips with blue cheese and sauteed spinach were the perfect choices. We shared the souffle dessert, which was ordered early and had no problem finishing up in time for curtain call. I can't wait to return with my husband so he can share some of Bobby's goodness!
