    Brilliant opening

    The place blew me away. I'm still thinking of an appetizer salad of sauteed hen of the wood mushrooms and a poached egg over frisee. The room is lovely: very buzz-y but not overly loud. Don't quite get the intermediate course, however: if you order it you get too much to eat yet it's not big enough to be a main course. It's best to think of it as an alternative to the appetizer choices I guess.

    Delicious -- A Very Special Night Out

    My husband and I don't get out to restaurants very often but we treated ourselves to a special night out last week at Telepan and had a fabulous meal there. The food was delicious, especially the monkfish paprikas and the Nantucket bay scallops. And the decor was pretty and warm and cleverly arranged. Can't wait until the chef starts serving lunch next month as this will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood for business lunches.

    Not ready for prime time yet

    I frequented Judson Grill where Telepan was the exec. chef for years and enjoyed each visit tremendously, but I must say that our experience at his solo venture was a bit disappointing. Many of the dishes are the same as at Judson, but not as expertly prepared. My short ribs were cold and so were the meat components of a few other dishes. Altogether, the excellent composition that I had come to expect from Telepan was missing. Even though we ordered the tasting menu, some of the courses felt like a bit of an after thought; not a representation of the chef's best work. The place was humming and I just don't feel that Telepan is keeping an eye on everything coming out of the kitchen (I just hope that is the case rather than his standards slipping). I think Telepan is trying to do too much with all the menu items while trying to work out the kinks of a new restaurant, and the prices are not on par with the quality just yet. The space is adequate, but needs some thought in terms of decor and lighting. I will come back and give it another chance in a few weeks, but not with a tasting menu. Also, there is this strange character that greeted us as we entered and kept walking around the dining room and eyeing table. He didn't seem to have any function except to get in the way of the servers--very strange. (We nicknamed him "Lurch") . All in all, the food is good so go when it's not so busy and forgo the tasting menu until things settle.

    Fantastic!

    Just ate there tonight. What a welcome addition to the UWS. Tuna appetizer and the best duck breast I have ever had. Homemade ice cream for dessert. All that and the chef is handsome too. A great night out in a beautiful space.

    He's Back

    For over a year I have waited for Bill Telepan to resurface. His new restaurant on west 69 street is turning out wonderful innovative food in a simply but elegant stting. Telepan's food is better than I remembered. They are off to a great start

    Unbelievable at one week

    Hard to believe this restaurant has been open just one week. Bill Telepan, most recently of Judson Grill, has put together a fantastic menu with appetizer, mid-course meal, and entree, leaving this new West Side entree affordable to most. And the wine list is fantasic and not outrageously marked up. The decor is lovely and the staff is both gracious and attentive. The Upper West Side has been waiting for this for years. Ouest is overrated and Compass is too expensive for what it is. I look forward to becoming a regular. Welcome to the neighborhood!
