Restaurant Review: A welcome stylish quality seafood addition to Sutton Place
This very stylish restaurant makes me think I am in Montauk without the two-hour drive. It has a great corner location across from a small park that added to the attractiveness of the spot. When my wife and I arrived at 8:30 P.M. on a Friday, the place certainly had some buzz, but one could have a reasonable conversation. It did have a moderate amount of noise at this early stage, but we found it acceptable. The service was very attentive and also seemed to be very well organized for a restaurant that had been open for only one month. The food was excellent, which we think was the general consensus as we saw only empty plates around us.
We started with the red pepper hummus, which was very creamy with lots of veggies. We followed this with oysters, which were very tasty, composed of a mix of big Blue Points and very creamy, flavorful West Coast oysters. The grilled calamari was delicious and was surprisingly light. It came with veggies and was perfectly cooked. I had the Dover Sole Meuniere, which was very flavorful and well prepared. Rating TBD, corkage $25/Bottle.
