Eye Candy From Narcissa, This Week’s Reviewed Restaurant


Zachary Feldman stops into Narcissa (21 Cooper Square) for this week’s review, where he finds Dovetail’s John Fraser working his familiar vegetable magic in a setting that’s far from precious. “Narcissa appears almost defiantly modern,” he writes. “You’ll find no obscure agricultural tools or bales of hay at this farm-to-table restaurant. What you will find is plenty of tarted-up vegetables and a parade of fashionable people putting those vegetables into their mouths.” He goes on to taste carrots Wellington, beets and sweet potatoes cooked in a rotisserie basket, and a few meatier dishes, like lamb.

Photographer Bradley Hawks captured the restaurant in images; take a look at his work here and then read Feldman’s full review.
