I just came upon this Chowhound site, and am sure to check it out often. I've been hoping for quite a while to hear a first hand review of the Box Tree Restaurant in Manhattan, and my husband finally came upon someone who has eaten there. They say that the food, ambience, and service were all excellent, but, as I expected, the prices are outrageous. It definitely sounds like a special occasion place.
If anyone has more detailed information, please share.
