If you want haute cuisine..just maybe. More on this in a second. The setting; ‘worthy’, ‘hushed’ and ‘corporate’ are words more fitting than ‘romantic’ and ‘atmospheric’ . The service however is as good as you will find anywhere – discrete and VERY impressive.
Perhaps it is just me, but I could not get excited enough about the food – none of that feeling of ‘food memory’ you have the next morning after a really special meal. Same for my guest. Wonderful sounding ingredients but flavors that were frankly just to subtle (or did I say bland) when combined. Was it good? Yes, certainly; but given the prices, I cannot say it represented value for my money. I have been to many expensive restaurants and come away thinking ‘wow’. I came away from Pied a Terre thinking it was ‘expensive’.
To go or not to go?…That is indeed the question. Not if you want somewhere really memorable, and certainly not if atmosphere or buzz are also on your list. Would I go again? – Sorry guys, Nope, not unless i had clients I did not know well and for whom I needed somewhere quiet, truly dependable and very ‘safe’.
