Thomas Lents, the executive chef, makes the art of creating exquisite food for one of the most opulent high-profile dining rooms in town seem like a perfectly natural thing for a person to do. If he’s straining, you wouldn’t know it from what appears before you: One dish after another impresses with well-considered interplay among tastes and textures, seasonal savoir-faire, and artistry that never veers into preciousness. Ordering options: seasonal tasting menu ($190), prix fixe ($130), à la carte on request. Formal service; serious wine program.
