It opened at its second location in October 2008[5] and was there just short of nine years before closing in July 2017.[6] Jackets were required for men, at both lunch and dinner.[1]


The menu was modern French, and included dishes such as porcini flan with Dungeness crab and black truffle broth, wild salmon, and organic duckling.[5]


The romantic, candle-lit restaurant had vaulted ceilings brushed with gold leaf, an ancient French fireplace, and Impressionist paintings.[5][7][8][9][10][11] A circular stone staircase led to a cellar for private parties.[5]


In 2013, Zagats gave it a food rating of 28, and ranked it the best of 111 restaurants in Tribeca, and the 3rd-best restaurant in New York City.[2][12] In 2015, TripAdvisor rated it the best restaurant in the United States.[13]
