Having been fortunate enough to dine at some of the world's best restaurants, I have to say that my experience last night at Corton was just outstanding. The perfect ambiance, service, food and wine blew me away as there are only a few restaurants in NYC of this level. We did the tasting menu paired with wines. This was 8 courses that were matched perfectly with a half glass of wine or Champagne with each course. There were 3 starters that the Chef brought out and then the courses came one after another and although dinner was 3 hours, it felt like half of that since we loved it so much. There were edible flowers, foams, fish, squab, vegetables and truffles. Then....desserts.
I would say RUN to this restaurant if you have the chance.
