When I go back to a city, I will re-run searches to see if anything new shows up in line with my dining interests. When I ran a recent search on New York, the restaurant Recette came up. I looked at their menu, which listed several small plates that they offer as their dining options. I could make reservations via Opentable.com, so I set the meal up for my Saturday night in New York.
The restaurant is prominently located on a corner in an area which seems a little more residential than commercial. There were about 20 tables or so packed into single medium-sized room with a casual atmosphere.
I ordered a glass of the German Riesling, which they let me taste before pouring my glass. It was the right balance of dry and sweet, so it was a good choice for me.
I liked that they had a choice on the tasting menu length that could be selected. Of course, I went with the 10-course selection. But since everything is in small-plate format, you could just pick a few courses a la carte and be set with that.
