8 1/2, moving the wrong way

This restaurant at 57th and 5th has always flown beneath the radar. Chef de cuisine for the last few years was always very inventive and tried to keep the Republican clients away from the lobster club sandwich, steak frites and welcoming bar into areas of occasionally real genius in the kitchen. Baby abalone and swordfish marrow were a few oddities that really worked. Well he is on the way out and it seems the old prosaic style where the resto is empty at night will persist ad nauseum. Shame for him, shame for them.
