Award-winning chef Tom Colicchio's Flatiron District Contemporary American is widely recognized as one of the city's top restaurants for impeccably sourced seasonal ingredients. The menu's strikingly minimalist dish descriptions (the names of single vegetables, meats and seafood are listed under categories such as "Roasted," "Braised," and "Sauteed") mirror the preparations themselves, which are seemingly simple and often perfectly executed. While it's a big-ticket dining destination, the food is served family-style, adding a touch of informality to the proceedings; N.B. the oysters, day-boat scallops, hen of the woods mushrooms, and short ribs are signatures, and pastry chef Karen DeMasco's desserts are not to be missed.
