Atera with Anne

Happy Birthday Anne! Since it’s your birthday I thought it would be a good idea to write a recap of our dinner last month at Atera.

My good friend, Anne, and I recently went to Atera before I left for Bali. We are both big “foodies” and agree that Atera is one of the most unique restaurants in NYC to splurge on. The menu varies seasonally, and you will always be entertained when dining there, since most sit along a large U-shaped counter around the kitchen where you can watch the chefs work their culinary magic.

Caviar | tapenade, burnt cream

Fluke | daikon, mushroom, wasabi

Fall Salad | yellow vegetables, gold leaf, yes gold!

I love these chocolates and the way they are presented.

A really great cappucinno. They also have an amazing tea service, which I’m going to try next time.

 Thank you Atera for another unforgettable meal.
