The Leopard at Des Artistes
Located in the New York landmarked Hotel Des Artistes, and surrounded by the astonishing 1920s murals by Howard Chandler Christy, THE LEOPARD at des Artistes finds its roots in the area once known as "The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies" (mid 1800s) and in the culinary traditions of the regions of Campania, Basilicata, Calabria, Apulia, Sardinia, and of course Sicily, reaching a balance between dishes based on rural elements, such as pasta, vegetables, cheese, and seafood ingredients from the Costiera.
Came upon this restaurant by chance as had originally booked in the very overpriced and touristy Tavern on the Green, just across the street in Central Park. After 10 minutes in the bar at the Tavern, left in search of something more sophisticated.
The food here was top notch, originality with tradition in the french style and supported by an excellent wine list. The decor may not be to everyone's taste, but it certainly is impressive.
Whilst not wanting to sound pompous, the restaurant had an interestingly impressive mix of European and American clientelle and the staff were couteous and friendly (some might think over-friendly for the amount charged, but not to my thinking)
Three course dinner for two including a bottle was approx $220. All in all money well spent.
Four god friends decided to return to Cafe des Artiste for Christmas Eve dinner........all of us were very satisfied with the service and the beautiful room, as always...our clear disappointment was with 2 entrees, the fish schnitzel was reminiscent of MacDonalds fish sandwich.very disappointing and very expensive!
