EAT: RDV DEBUTS ON FDB
The same can be said about the marinated sardines present with slivers of cucumber and a bouquet of garlic micro greens which was one of the best grilled fish dishes we have had in some time. Roasted celeriac mainly seasoned with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of salt was also another example of the less is more attitude of the fine dishes offered up at RDV. We thought that the pureness of the cuisine was almost like eating in Italy for the first time which made sense since the south of France is by the Mediterranean.
There is also a very edited wine list which has some top quality offerings for those with particular taste. We had a glass of pinot on the menu that was more extraordinary than most and would definitely recommend trying the selection during the course of an evening. RDV might have inconspicuously opened just north of Central Park but we already see the restaurant as becoming one the best debuts of the year.
