Me and my partner (from Seattle) ate at Recette on Wednesday and loved everything about our experience and are looking to re-create it somewhere else. We enjoyed the seven course prix fixe and each one was perfect, the space was small but intimate, great service as well. Loved it!
We ate at The Modern Bar last night and had a poor experience...steak tartare was "off," over-processed and gummy- a lot like spam, unfortunately and the salmon tartare was bland with a poorly cooked fried quail egg. It didn't live up to its reputation.
Any suggestion on the Lower East Side, Greenwich, West End would be appreciated.
On a side note, has anyone eaten at Colonie in Brooklyn?
