Critic’s Notes

Chris Ayukawa’s vibrant cooking style results in an intriguing mélange of tradition and flair. What the menu lacks in focus, it makes up for in creativity. Try the almond pesto flatbread with pork belly, the pan-seared corvina paired with truffle gravy, or a backyard barbecue spin on grilled monkfish. Add Niche’s quality wine list and smart desserts, and you have a sophisticated white-tablecloth destination.
