Critic’s Notes

One Off Hospitality’s flagship no longer sets the avant-garde pace but still delivers a great high-end meal. Duck breast with buttermilk spaetzle and fennel, for example, lightens up with an orange sauce, riffing on a classic. By stepping back from brash artistic plates to more familiar but wonderful food, Blackbird maintains its reputation as a destination restaurant. Desserts are always delicious.
