Concierge.com's insider take:

Husband-and-wife team Michael and Lindsay Tusk have created a jewel with their swank downtown restaurant, Quince. The two met at Oliveto—he was in the kitchen, she was in the dining room—where they picked up much of their restaurant sensibilities. Now Lindsay manages the elegantly austere dining room, which she designed and decorated with cream walls, white leather armchairs, and simple chandeliers. It's the perfect setting for Michael's seasonal Italian and French cooking. Pastas are handmade, and just about everything else is culled from nearby farms. Devotion to the perfect product is so complete that dessert could very well be simply a plate of local strawberries and grapes. Book well ahead.—Updated by John Vlahides
