Nightbird is a tasting menu only experience. Chef Alter produces a new menu every week. With the best ingredients available, she creates a meal that satisfies and surprises, with each course building toward the next. The style is refined, letting flavor and texture combinations shine through without overwhelming the senses. A wine pairing menu is also available, with discerning choices that elevate the experience. Alter’s pedigree and the meticulous selections and preparations comes at a price–the tasting menu runs $125 and another $65 for the wine pairings.
With an owl motif–the eponymous Nightbird–the dining room design is restrained and comfortable. Blue velvet chairs slide up to honey-colored wood tables. Pendant lighting keep the space bright and lively. Next door is the Linden Room bar–a sleek, sexy take on Deco style with artisanal cocktails.
