Critic rating: Star rating

A relaxed milieu at once antique yet au courant, an ad hoc $45 prix fixe menu served family style, plus the requisite fine-dining frills -- expertly blended cocktails, a thoughtful wine list and personable, skillful servers -- make this the most coherent expression of Ethan Stowell's restaurant vision yet. Dinner daily.
