The food is excellent, and it's still one of my favorite restaurants, but they changed the menu taking some things off which were delicious - like the fritas - and they made the portions SMALLER. We used to take food home sometimes, now we're hungry if we don't order a few plates. It's sad because we used to go often, now we'll probably opt for something else most of the time and save this place for a treat. The food deserves 5 stars though, quality hasn't changed fortunately.

Polenta. When you hear the word "polenta", you probably think "peasant food", right? If you have never been to St Austere, I would agree with you, polenta is boring. This place, however, has polenta that will change your view of the dish forever. Its godly. I've been here a couple of times and have tried most of the menu. It is all fantastic. They also have an awesome homemade dark n stormy. The only thing I really didn't like was their tiramisu. They do something weird with frozen coffee ice shavings that I wasn't too crazy about. Its not bad, but its also nothing to write home about. That being said, this place still deserves 5 stars. EDIT: They no longer have the homemade dark N stormy. They also no longer have the brussel sprouts. That's like McDonalds taking Coke and a fries off the menu. 😢

We found this place by accident. As we stumbled in and sat down one of the waiters run up and says we still have five minutes to go on happy hour so order drinks now! This was among other things 2 for 1 drinks and 1$ oysters. We ordered the polenta board and Branzini with a carrot cake to share for dessert. As we were only two we couldn't eat anymore even if we wanted to. i enjoyed the cozy environment with bar tables and dimmed lighting. I also enjoyed the not to loud music which must be a European thing compared to other American restaurants we've been to. This place is also good for a quick snack or just a few items in the bar. The service was excellent even though they were swamped. We we're lucky to get a table I think. So if you plan to make a night of it, book.

I love the tasty small bites and wine. Great happy hour as well, 2 for 1 wine and cheap oysters.

One of the better meals I've ever had in NYC. Go with the chef's tasting menu, and ask them to go heavy on the Polenta board. You'll leave satisfied and absolutely stuffed
