Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

Description
Game meats meet stylistic flourishes, and classic French fare becomes nouveau in Chef Karim's kitchen. His decades of culinary experience show in subtle and flavorful ways in his 20-seat dining room in the Lower East Side. The candle-lit dinners are intimate and convivial, and the decor's sparse and natural while maintaining an easy charm. Small farms provide the food we serve, with a focus on hormone and antibiotic-free ostrich, venison, and bison, and hand-selected wines and craft beers are expertly paired with the dishes. Of course, everything rotates seasonally, but the experience is consistently pleasant and true to the spirit of the Gentleman Farmer.
