This week in the Voice, Our Man Sietsema gets transported to Rome at Quinto Quarto.
Pete Wells loosens his grip on his precious stars to award two to Saul Bolton’s eponymous restaurant in Brooklyn, despite his nostalgia for the original 1999 menu.
Adam Platt finds that “the more ambitious food at Aureole seems to be frozen stubbornly in the Charlie Palmer heyday of fruit-flavored entrees and too much foie gras.”
Jay Cheshes deems the food at Gabriel Stulman’s Joseph Leonard “so straightforward… there’s clearly more than the cooking to thank for the restaurant’s success.”
Gael Greene notes that “something gets lost in too much thought and gentrification” with Missy Robbins’ food at the Columbus Circle outpost of A Voce.
