Chef John Besh never seems to sleep. In addition to running three restaurants and competing recently in the Food Network's Iron Chef competition, he's planning an Italian family-style eatery in the soon-to-be-reopened Roosevelt Hotel. But his first restaurant is still where this chef does his best work. The atmosphere is as welcoming and chic as ever—crystal chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows played against weathered brick—and Besh hasn't missed a step in terms of the menu. His flash-fried soft-shell crab starter still melts on the tongue; the bowl of truffled gnocchi dazzles with a single jewel of flawless lump crabmeat. Besh changes his menus constantly and is currently honing his farm-to-table approach with dishes like sugar/spice roast duckling with stone-ground grits and rich foie gras.

Open Mondays through Fridays 11 am to 2 pm and 5 to 9 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 5 to 9 pm.
