As a “first-class” destination, Terry Brennan’s quietly “gorgeous” Lincoln Center–area French-Med goes “the whole nine yards” with a “superb” staff serving “beautifully rendered” cuisine, right up to the famously “exquisite” cheese-course finale; it’s “the lap of luxury” for a “grown-up” clientele, but be ready to “pay for it.”
If you're looking for a meal to match the elegance of a night at the opera, consider this formal yet comfortable Lincoln Center area stalwart from chef/owner Terrance Brennan. The banquettes lining the violet walls of this serene townhouse draw a crowd that still considers dining out an occasion (and dresses accordingly). A seasonal French/Mediterranean menu includes both à la carte and tasting options (starting with a two-course pre-theater special and culminating in a decadent 12-course feast with wine pairings.) Expect refined dishes like sea urchin panna cotta, diver scallops with dukkah (a paste of nuts, seeds, and spices) and a variation on chicken Kiev with liquid foie gras. There's also a curtained off bar that serves small plates and selections from the epic wine list of more than 600 bottles. When ordering, keep in mind that Picholine's artisanal cheese course is one of the best in the city. Another perk: Because it's too expensive for the casual diner and too established to be trendy, you shouldn't struggle to get a last-minute reservation for a memorable Michelin-starred dining experience.
