Tips:
  • The list is a Spanish wine-lover's dream, offering bottles by their designation of origin (D.O.) and ranging from an affordable $26 Perlat to a more fantastically priced Clos L'Ermita ($500). For the money, the full-flavored, semi-dry $12 quartino of Rottlan Torra Reserva is perfect.
  • Just around the corner is Bar Jamon, a casual wine bar where a daily selection of cheeses and cured hams is available.

Cafe Mono, not to be confused with adjacent Bar Jamon

This very small Spanish tapas restaurant represents a different direction for Mario Battaglia, but retains his signature amazing and interesting combinations of fresh ingredients. Reservations were a little too precious, “could we make a 5:30 PM reservation a few minutes later? — Sure, how about 11:30 PM?” The tables are NYC close and uncomfortable. Loudish music makes for strained conversation. Wait staff were basically okay and knowledgeable, a little hard to find because of the layout of the place. The Cafe Mono salad was sublime, perfectly dressed, with good crunch. Calamari was simple, fresh and well prepared — served hot. Atichokes were less impressive. Duck with cranberry was meaty, nicely cooked and very tasty. Skirt steak was perfectly charred but a little rare on the inside. The chef had a very heavy hand with the salt, especially with a fingerling potato side dish that bordered on inedible. For those who don’t want a full bottle of wine, there was nothing by the glass, but instead by 1/3 bottle carafes — a lucrative marketing strategy to be sure. Overall, a worthwhile place to try, especially if you’re in the area — with a unique and fresh style, but too many drawbacks to make it likely we’d go back.

Pretty much exactly what I was expecting: good...

Pretty much exactly what I was expecting: good food at slightly painful prices. Sweetbreads were especially fab, as was the plum brandy sundae.

Bad Hostess

Batali's comments are insensitive and hurtful

I can't believe Batali is comparing bankers to Hitler and Stalin. Agree with the previous post that it is completely insensitive. Why can't he just stick to making food? I can only assume that if he is busy attending conferences and…

Boycott Mario Batali Restaurants

Mario Batali's recent comment comparing bankers to Hitler and Stalin are downright disgusting and irresponsible (reference at bottom of review). While there are many views on bankers during these challenging times, his references to such…
