Idyllically seated at the base of Central Park amid midtown towers, Marea functions like the remote office of the media elite. Service is on the ball and very capable of managing the high-energy crowds of big personalities. The dining room has that certain Manhattan sensibility that is at once dressy and contemporary but never fussy. It screams the kind of money and taste that carries not a glint of flash. To the left of the entrance, find an attractive and popular bar area; if true-blue New York sophisticates sought their ideal venue to speed-date, they'd find it here. Chef Michael White asserts his genius time and again through signature dishes that are not to be missed. Beautifully cooked octopus may sound excessively complex when paired with smoked potatoes, pickled red onions, chilies, and tonnato sauce, but each element is used in subtle quantity, with a certain restrained harmony that leaves you wanting more. Generous portions of strozzapretti bring humble paste to new heights in a balanced and complementary sauce of briny sea urchin, sweet crab, tomatoes, and basil. Desserts are elegant and precise, yet manage to layer flavor upon flavor in a contemporary composition of chocolate.

      Pros

      Un accueil attentionné ( maître d'hotel exquis et une serveuse française après avoir reconnu notre accent) Des tagliatelles au ris de veau et une sélection de poisson et de vins US - excellente découverte pour les curieux

      Cons

      une succession de serveur et de serveuse au cours du service - conseil du sommelier moins aiguisé et pertinent que pour des étoilés français.
