Hi, Ive read very mixed reviews on Esca on this board and elsewhere. The crudo and the salt-baked fish are intriguing. I am debating going there before heading across the street to enter Jewtopia. As far as my tastes, in terms of Mario restaurants, I think Babbo is incredible while Casa Mono was too greasy to go back. Wrt to seafood, Jewel Bakos sushi trumped the overweaning service while I thought Le Bernardins fish was impeccable but I prefer much simpler preparation. Will I enjoy Esca? Thank you.
