Bâtard

European in Financial District & Lower Manhattan

Austrian chef Markus Glocker heads this warm, Michelin-starred hot spot, where a pared-back interior puts the focus squarely on the food. Glocker's dishes are precise examples of classical French and Italian cooking: the prix-fixe menus hold rich delights such as venison and fois gras terrine with shiitake mushrooms, cashews, figs and brioche, and white-truffle pappardelle with Parmesan fondue and poached egg.

Service is gracious and the Francophile wine list is particularly strong on the wines of Burgundy. On Monday, bring your own bottle and pay no corkage.
