Am going to be in the neighbourhood tonight and wonder if I should dine at 701West. It's an hotel restaurant [and there doesn't seem to be a proper website—I got directed to three different websites, none of which contained any useful content], and I somehow doubt 'swank' and 'flagship fine-dining' suit Times Square [the only choice is a $110 prix fixe?], but maybe spillover from Hudson Yards will properly gentrify Hells Kitchen?
I must admit I'm intrigued by the wine-centric concept, and
An appetizer of roasted quail au poivre finished with lacquered honey is matched with a Grenache, and guinea hen roasted whole is paired with two wines: bold Borolo for the dark meat and Barbaresco for the light.
does sound like my sort of thing. [Some of the flavours on the menu read a bit too 'American' for my sensibility, actually.]
Edited: they don't accept same-day reservations after 3, though every night this week seems to offer plenty of tables. Sort of dumb.
