Had dinner last night at nice matin, the new mediterranean on 79th and Amsterdam. Andy D'amico from Sign of the Dove is the chef.
This place has great promise as an addition to the neighborhood. Pretty room, although tables are close together. Had a great grilled sweatbreads appetizer with merguez and lentils, well cooked sweetbreads, merguez a good counterpoint. Roasted chicken was well cooked and flavorful, with a creamy cornmeal gratin and leeks, my partner a sauteed veal, very lemony, but not overpowering. The side dish of ratatouille was diced, well cooked, not mushy with distinct flavors. Well chosen wine list, and a great apple charlotte for dessert. Entrees high teens to low 20's. Service is attentive and not overbearing.
