My coworker lives in Midtown East and recommended this restaurant called Respite (looks like 50th between 2nd and 3rd Ave). He's gone quite a few times and I trust his food judgement.
On Yelp (yes, I generally trust the aggregates), it's gotten very positive reviews. I'm a frequent visitor of CH, but I've never seen it mentioned. Search doesn't return anything as well.
Also, it looks like they have 7 and 11 course tasting menus, which are generally only put out by ambitious restaurants.
Has anyone been? Opinions?
