Robert Sietsema at Lima Limon; Lauren Shockey at L’Artiste


This week in the Voice, Robert Sietsema indulges in “Peruvian Viagra” at Lima Limon in Little Latin America; Lauren Shockey discovers classic bistro fare at L’Artiste in Astoria.

Sam Sifton awards a mostly enthusiastic two stars to Millesime: “[H]oly cats, is there a beautiful, even exciting brasserie up there … a restaurant devoted to the pleasures of the sea that manages to be luxurious and humble, ambitious and rustic, all at once.”

Steve Cuozzo agrees, proclaiming that Millesime “delights palate, eye and even the din-weary ear. How rare to see a chef unknown to New Yorkers, brandishing Michelin stars earned elsewhere, take on a Manhattan space several generations out of fashion and make it work!”

Ryan Sutton finds hits and misses at the Lambs Club, which is pretty pricey to have many of the latter, deeming it “a decent enough place for steak and martinis post-theater.”

Ligaya Mishan is lukewarm about Mehtaphor: “The food seems constrained, too, although for the most part, it is delicious.”
