    Nice!

    I went for brunch the other day and was more than impressed. I am a food writer, so I have been pretty much everywhere. I started with trout and blini dish. Lush, soft, with a suprising kick at the end. Also, the quail and duck sausage was moist with just enough firmness and flavor. I had to eat fast, since everyone was literally swooning over these starters. Someone in my group had the cheese, egg, and bacon sandwich. Nice but more standard brunch fare. A burger with homemade pickles -- a nice touch that made the dish sing. And I had a pasta with poached egg and peas (forgot the name). It was complex and won everyone over. Finally, I finished off the meal with a banana cake sundae. Let's just say, we had no trouble finishing it off. In fact, one of my party insisted on cleaning the plate. You can imagine how good it was. As far as decor, I like the green. It's fresh and goes nicely with the organic and carefully chosen ingredients. And the service was friendly and helpful at every turn. I am looking forward to coming back for dinner.

    Already A Firm Favorite

    I have now been here for dinner 3 times and this has become a firm favorite of ours on the UWS in only a short time. The food is terrific and atmosphere is good. However, I have noticed a deterioration in service levels since the restaurant opened. I hope this has only been due to its increased popularity and patronage. It is nice to see parts of the menu are continually changing but I do think the wine list (although reasonably extensive) becomes reasonably expensive rather too quickly. We will contiue to frequent this restaurant for the entire package (where the food certainly makes up for any other minor flaws) and hope that the service can again live up to the quality of the food and the environment. P.S Ask not to be seated near the exit to the kitchen/waiter station. It gets rather busy and for the price of the dining experience is a little off-putting.

    Finally! A Chic Eatery on the UWS

    There really aren't that many fabulous restaurants on the UWS. We've been waiting for a new chic & sophisticated restaurant to open up in the Lincoln Center neighborhood for a long time. Telepan gives us delicious, inventive and artfully presented dishes, great service, and a beautiful, retro-designer space, with Japanese zen-Green colored walls and Florence Knoll-esque fixturing. Make sure you go on a completely empty stomach. The menu is fun - all mix and match from 3 separate columns. There are endless combos to chose from to create your own $55, 4-course prix fixe tasting. Of course, you can just chose one or two items a la carte, but it is really hard to decide if you're a foodie. All the ingredients used are local and seasonal (probably organic too). The winelist is equally impressive, with pages and pages of the finest wines from around the world. The food is very rich and flavorful, and on top of that, they start you off with a mini-tasting of 3 differerent amuse bouches. Having said all that, the vibe is still very down-to-earth. The ambiance, combined with their sultry 40's soundtrack, dim-lightling, attentive waitstaff and awesome food would definitely be a romantic date place. It has quickly become one of my favorites on the UWS. I would recommend this highly to all my friends and will definitely go back to try everything else!

    Flavorful

    Interesting hen of wood salad and excellent soup. The chicken was delicious, and the lobster had a number of distinct flavors but ask for the pasta al dente. They need to put on the air conditioning. The service was fine, and the bread good. I would go back. My husband loved it and he is finicky. They should upgrade the butter.

    Worth every penny

    Telepan in a word? Nuance. I admit I was skeptical, but one try and I?ve been thinking about it for a week now. Sadly, I can't afford to eat here regularly, but it?s left its mark, and I can?t wait to go back. Counter to my expectations, the food is not overly fussy, but delicately conceived and executed--a real treat after suffering through so much heavy-handed menu mediocrity elsewhere. The wine list is great (there are some really good affordable choices), and the sommelier is an artist. Truly, he?s gifted with words, and excellent in pairing diverse dinners with just the perfect bottle that draws out the character of the wine. After a delicious amuse bouche from the chef, I had the yellowtail appetizer (if you even remotely like yellowtail, this incarnation may render you unable to speak) and scallops on the entree side of the menu...absolutely elegant. And the space is beautiful. I can't think of a more perfect place to take a date, or have mom and dad take you to dinner!

    This place is excellent.

    The restaurant is pretty. The atmosphere is casual. The staff is friendly. The wine is great. And most of all, the food is the best I've had in a couple of years. Get in before the explosion starts. The review in the Daily News and the New Yorker and I'm sure the NY Times is coming out very soon.

    Terrific Food

    Telepan is a wonderful restaurant. The good is exquisite and the wine list is great. The waitress recommended the perfect wine with these great tasting blinis. There is a wine waiter in a cellar room where I could see from my table. Was fun watching him decant the wines. The breads are really good too. Similar to ones I had when I used to eat at Judson Grill, the chef's former restaurant. I will be back again!
