Critic’s Notes

Luxury suffuses every aspect of Thomas Lents’s four-course tasting menu. He fashions complex, elegant meals from the highest-quality ingredients and plates them handsomely, while his precision and deftness with texture, temperature, and proportioning result in culinary modernism at its best. Ordering options: seasonal tasting menu, $190; prix fixe, $130; à la carte on request. Formal service; serious wine program.
