The Restaurant David Toutain (ex-Agape Substance) hits the spot.

Three of us ate today at David Toutain's new Resto in the 7th and agreed that it is innovative, consistent (as opposed to some of the bumps he created at Agape Substance) and has the nicest, warmest, informed chef and staff possible after 5 days of functioning. It is pricey - 174.66 E a couple, loud (85.7 dB), and has a forced-choice (but 14-15 course) menu which has a thematic thrust (protein and veggie bits with bouillons poured on top). Elaine Sciolino and the NYT curse will soon descend - so go now when it's only 17.87% English-speaking.
