Anyone been to Dona (208 E. 52nd St.)? Worth visiting for dinner?
Thanks in advance for the advice
Very good food. Service was not very good when I was there, shortly after opening. I would go back....strong on fish. You can see my review posted here a few months back.
Yes, two dinners and one lunch. Many of the dishes, especially the hot and cold appetizers, were very good. Really good pastas, and a new risotto which involves pushing hot marrow out of a marrow bone and stirring it into the rice, which is then topped with shavings of foie gras.
For $79, you can choose two appetizers, a pasta and an entree: given that it's a swish place in midtown, I think that's good value.
The atmosphere is suit-and-tie and chintzy, which isn't for everyone, but I recommend the food.
I was a little disappointed, especially because most of the best dishes were mainstays at Onera. And all in all, I much prefer the vibe (and the slightly gentler prices) at Onera.
