Recette

Conceptualized as an outgrowth, and a home for Chef Jesse Schenker's Recette Private Dining underground supper club, “Recette”(recipe in French) pushes boundaries by offering the food demanded in a fine dining experience, but in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Recette is an urban American restaurant that marries traditional and progressive techniques, while manipulating ingredients and temperature to create maximum flavor. We honor the ingredients by refusing to use anything but the best. We adjust the menu seasonally to highlight the availability of these but quality, freshness and consistency in this always remains paramount. The sophisticated yet approachable menu is designed so that diners can order just as they please. With the option to participate in one of three tasting menu options or order from the a la carte menu of inspired snacks and plates, diners have the ability to customize their Recette experience.

"Second time there, and absolutely loved it yet again. As my husband put it, every mouthful was a delight, an explosion of flavor, subtle nuances of deliciousness. Genius on a plate. I highly recommend the tasting, but don't think you can go wrong no matter what you order."

"We live in the neighborhood and finally made it to Recette. The place is a total delight. The food exceeded expectations, the wine was better, and the service superlative without being stodgy. I don't know why this is not more of a citywide destination, but I am happy for our sake that it remains under the radar. Go here!"

"This is a restaurant Cupid could love. We had dinner at Recette on Valentine's Day. What a superlative experience! The five-course tasting menu was a taste sensation. Let us count the ways. Red snapper crudo flecked with pomegranate, fennel purée, and caviar so fresh you wanted to slap it. Shellfish chowder festooned with morsels of succulent seafood. Duck, on a bed of coco bean cassoulet and chorizo, that melted on the tongue. Veal accompanied by sweet potato hash and creamed kale, a dish that left us cheering. The dessert of raspberry mousse offered an exclamation point that was satisfying without being cloying. What about the service, you might ask? Perhaps the best of any restaurant in New York. Solicitous without being saccharine. Attentive without hovering. We bow to you, Recette!"

"This is a very small restaurant, with a cozy bistro style. They play loud music that didn't match the style at all. We had reservations but had to wait for 30 minutes anyway. The valentine's day meal was okay. Extremely expensive for the quality of food you got. They were obviously having trouble keeping up with table service and waitstaff were visibly irritated. But still friendly. The crudo was delicious. Each course had interesting flavor profiles but the courses were hit and miss. Overall, some great food but definitely not worth $400 for two people."

"We were excited to try Recette as it came highly recommended. The service was good but the meals we received weren't great. One entree was cold and two main meals missed the mark. I hope this was a one off as the menu sounded better than what was plated up."

"At first glance, the restaurant looked idyllic and adorable in West Village. The ambiance inside is also fairly romantic and a nice noise level for dinner. However, the food and the service left much to be desired. Extremely small portions and either too salty or too bland. Look elsewhere for date night in West Village - many other better options!"

"I'd thought this was a gourmet tapas place, with a French accent, so was very excited to go, hoping to be reminded of Barcelona and Madrid where so much ordinary tapas is superb. Was extremely disappointed. The food was awful, from my standpoint. First, there was almost nothing I was inclined to order -- nearly every dish with meat (bad news not non-meat-eaters) and/or with hot chili -- and puny selection of fish. And the place is a bit too precious about special requests, e.g., hold the meat-based condiments. Then what I did order (with or without special requests) was mediocre. Won't be returning."
