I never expected to find such a place at The Museum of Art and Design. This place is amazing: from its stunning modern decor from floor to ceiling, to the incredible view of Columbus Circle. Everything there was great: the service, that was on point, as well as the seasonal food of the menu.

Here is what I tried there:

Cocktail - The New York Sour made with rye, lemon juice and Malbec. Quite good, but not as sour as I thought.

Appetizers:

Scallops with cauliflower puree, tangerine consommé and lotus roots. This was very good: the scallops were perfectly cooked, not rubbery at all.

Burrata and serrano ham: a perfect combination, the ham adding a nice saltiness to the dish.

Entrées:

Lamb chops with ratatouille and baby spinach: first of all, I was surprised to see that many lamb chops on the plate. Second, this was amazing: the lamb chops where perfectly cooked, juicy with a nice char.

Long Island duck breast served with parsnip purée, cranberry and apple chutney. This was also sublime: the duck was well cooked, pink, deliciously fatty with a crispy skin. I definitely recommend it.

Italian doughnuts or bomboloni that were ricotta fritters served with white chocolate, dark chocolate and caramel, a decadent dessert that was addictive.

Tiramisu that was a nice take on an Italian classic, an elegant version for sure.
