Pretty cozy, pretty pricey – For a casual lunch, this is a nice place to escape to. Be fore-warned that some items on the menu are a bit pricey because it's by Todd English.
A friend and I came for the Restaurant Week menu. I started with the pea soup of the day. Focaccia was supopse to come with it but it wasn't. I was looking forward to the Kobe Pastrami plate as my entree but they changed the menu and I ended up picking the grilled Atlantic salmon (came with a crab cake). My dessert was a lovely lemon tart. A huge slice.
My friend opted for the chef's selection RW menu. It was (4) fried oysters, bianca pizza and petite cheese cake.
For $6, we shared a risotto tater-tot side dish.
Service was a bit slow. The entire dining room was packed and we saw only 3 servers. We sat in the Ocean Grill & Oyster Bar area and had a nice view of the guy preparing a giant slab of tuna.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Anyone who’s had the pleasure of eating at Harrod’s in London will recognize the luxe-lunch concept at the Plaza Hotel’s elegant Food Hall, a lower-level eatery in the hotel’s former laundry space, outfitted with rich mosaic floors, marble bar tops and antiqued mirrors. Eight stations, each with a unique concept like sushi, dumplings or fresh seafood, offer diners the opportunity to watch chefs create their meal while sipping on a glass of vino. Those who prefer to get their goodies to-go will appreciate the market-style concept, complete with a cheese and charcuterie counter, fresh produce, kitchen gadgets and cupcakes made by Todd English’s teen-age daughter.
