I met Chef John Keller, whose enthusiasm for creating a home cooked meal experience was genuine and contagious. We were greeted with familiar warmth as soon as we walked in. The food was great. The steak tartare was phenomenal, very simple but delicious, as was the lamb w/mashed potato dish. I love the ambiance in there; the chandeliers, dim lighting & rustic mirrors were classy & warm. It felt very French but also very true downtown NYC. They were great hosts and super sweet people. That's my new spot, for sure."
