Though it's located in the busy, midtown Hotel Chandler (you'll walk past people rolling their suitcases to check out on your way to the bathroom), the dining room is spacious and, like the menu, elegant. Chef Hergatt manages to create beautifully presented and originally prepared dishes that still feel earthy and very much connected to the ingredient: The salmon is cured with beets, creating a beautiful color on the outside that gently fades in the middle, while parsnips are steeped in coffee and served with espresso ice cream. It's not surprising that he's earned a Michelin star.
