As summer winds down, and as Telepan approaches its 10th anniversary, we feel like celebrating!

For one month only, from August 17th through September 20th, we’ll offer Telepan’s signature tasting menu at the same price we featured when our doors first opened, almost 10 years ago!

Our End of Summer Menu offers both new seasonal dishes from our à la carte menu and summer renditions of some of our house favorites, like our Heritage pork “southern-style” with a BBQ twist and granita parfait with fresh tristar strawberries.

Full menu available at

Please note that our regular à la carte dinner menu will also be available during this time

Upscale greenmarket-focused American dining served in a sophisticated brownstone setting.- Google
"The pan-roasted trout was great as well, for an entree."
"This plus a parfait would be a fantastic "savory + sweet" brunch too."

Had an amazing experience and fantastic food here. The house smoked trout and lobster bolognese started off the meal with high expectations, followed by the heritage pork, which was amazing and the s'mores was delicious to end. Preordered their house made graham cracker ice cream as a result!

I did not eat at Telepan but was picking up my wash-and-fold from the Ecowash next door. I just had to put my clothes in my small suitcase, which took at most 1 minute. The hostess opened the door and asked me to move away from the front door, like I was some kind of bum or 'riffraff' hanging out in front of their door. Super rude and elitist. I'm sure the food here is good, but it doesn't mean the employees should treat those not actively in their restaurant like junk.

Hands down, one of the best restaurants in Manhattan.

Telepan's Restaurant Week 2014 lunch: MUCH DELICIOUS. VERY VALUE. WOW. Absolutely stellar was the poached egg and frisee salad. The wild mushroom mix was was perfectly fried and tossed with the frisee, lending a crouton quality bursting with umami. Oh gawd, so good. The other starter I tried was the house-smoke brook trout on a corn/potato blini which was good but not as standout, and tasted like it looked. The pan-roasted trout was great as well, for an entree. Crispy skin sprawling all over the plate, with a wilted baby spinach salad and pine nuts. Pine nuts don't generally contribute much for me, but they worked wonderfully in this dish, and the portion was generous not like the half-index-card filet you'd expect at some other restaurants. Also good (but too tiny) was the zucchini and egg pasta with housemade lemon ricotta and mint. This was springy deliciousness garnished with summery squash blossoms--and perfectly chewy in the way that only larvae-shaped pasta can be. Tried the pop-ems for dessert. They were good, but a little too intensely chocolate for lunch. The fudgey dipping was especially like... really? More chocolate? But the berry sauce was great for the grown-up molten cocoa puffs. This was my second RW2014 dine and I would rate Telepan's lunch above L'Ecole's -- though both were great and Telepan's was comfortably less filling (I am a goldfish and will not stop eating until the food is gone). Telepan's prix fixe menu offered 5-7 choices per course (and L'Ecole's offered several more, but this led to choice angst).

The staff are great. But....the entire menu, almost, is an unappetizing mash of flavors. A lot of the dishes didn't make lemon in spaghetti and orange in lamb sausage. And lots of beans are used in every dish. Didn't taste good to be honest. Definitely not worth the money either.

Telepan New York I was staying at the W and when I got to my room there were magazines on my desk. It has a mini profile of 6 restaurants and Telepan was one. I randomly picked it. I am happy I did. The space: A much more lively crowd vs many prix fixe places in NYC. Tthe room had great energy. A decent chunk of the crowd is what I would call the real housewives of the upper west side. Or perhaps that is just the type that was in my nearest vicinity. Either way, if you need more formal more stuffy, this isn't it. If you want a good energy this place is much better. I narrowed down each course to 2 options and had the waiter pick. He did a good job and seemed genuinely interested in getting me a good meal rather than just randomly picking. Bread Some sort of raisin bread. Fresh, delicious, great texture. Amuse Cheddar cheese beignets Very hot and just the right amount of cheese. Simple but nicely done. First - open egg Very unique Amazing flavors and there was no wasted space or ingredients with this one. This plus a parfait would be a fantastic "savory + sweet" brunch too. But it fit into my dinner mood nicely as well. Love those mushrooms! Second - Squash pierogi Unique and perfectly cooked. Highly recommend this one. Tasted very "modern and fresh" if that makes sense. Main - Trout A very nice slab of fish and I liked the sauce as well. Excellent but not mind blowing. Can't go wrong with this one though. Dessert - Mildred's cake Sweet but not too sweet and refreshing. The buttermilk ice cream was interesting but I didn't love it. With the bill came a coconut macaron to go which was a nice little bite to end the meal. For $55, this is quite a great deal.

It's not often that restaurants such as Telepan participate in Restaurant Week, but I was more than happy to partake in dinner here when the opportunity came around. Telepan is also unique in the fact that all the dishes offered during the season are part of the normal menu, which gives guests a chance to have a genuine experience. The Shrimp "Fried Rice", served with a coddled egg, and the Burrata Mezzaluna, filled with a creamy mozzarella, were the highlights of the meal for me; the emphasis on Greenmarket Cooking clearly shines through in the flavor and quality of the ingredients. The service was excellent and any questions and requests we had that evening were taken care of with ease. A well-deserved Michelin star.

One of the Upper West Side and Lincoln Center's best. The space is attractive, airy with lots of little nooks and crannies. Bill Telepan does superb farm-to-table cooking and you can't go wrong with whatever you order from the the three tier menu ( appetizer, small plates and entrees). Fine desserts too. And extra points for not squeezing in that extra table or two.
