This New Zealand restaurant offers a fine dining experience in a fairly informal environment. We had the five course (‘short story’) tasting menu, on which for me the highlights were the beef wellington, which melted in the mouth, and the pear sorbet with sherry caramel...More

the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
