Description:

Chef Jake Bickelhaupt (Schwa, Alinea) and his wife, Alexa Welsh, the hostess, live above this sleek BYO storefront, and the welcoming dinner party experience is meant to feel like a trip upstairs. The prix fixe menu and communal seating mean groups of strangers make their way together through Bickelhaupt’s 14 to 15 creative courses: a tumbler with a gelée of gin that looks like an ice cube; a bulbous duck tongue with duck cracklings and ash-baked eggplant; a play on tom kha soup with coconut noodles on a white porcelain spoon; pork-rindish pecorino crisps atop pecorino foam and fondue. It’s nonintimidating fine dining, and the whimsy never fatigues, nor does the meal drag. Online reservations only.
