Expert review of Corton

A destination restaurant that’s one of New York’s best culinary arrivals in years.

For a splurge-worthy meal I highly recommend Corton, not only because the food is excellent but because of the recession conscious US$85 three-course prix fixe. It’s an outstanding place all round.

Food and drink: 

The menu is a delight with a real emphasis on seasonal and local produce: among the recent standouts was a squash soup with tempura mushrooms, foie gras torchon, and an excellent Black Angus fillet.

Ambience: 

The grown-up atmosphere is a delightful break from the noise of the trendy spots, with a quiet, tranquil but bright dining room allowing you to focus on the inspired gourmet food and hear your dinner companion without straining.

Service: 

Professional, unobtrusive but helpful. What all fine dining places should be.

Location: 

Downtown New York.

Price advice: 

Go with the $85 tasting menu to get a sense of Paul Liebrandt’s fantastic range without breaking the bank.

Tables to book: 

Thanks to the good design, there isn’t a bad seat in the house.
