After about ten years of wanting to try it, i finally made it to queen on court st for dinner last night. I'm sorry i waited so long.
First of all, the service was impeccable--the kind you really can't get anymore in 99% of places.
The food was good, too. Amazingly, they have puntarelle, the italian chicory salad with the anchovy dressing. I'd go back just for that. It's rare to find it and their version is one of the best i've had in nyc. The frito misto was good but not really a frito misto, more just some nice pieces of seafood lightly fried. Gnocchi with veal and eggplant was good tho rich, better than the sliced port loin with broccoli rabe and peppers.
The decor doesn't do much for me, but the clientele is interesting.
I'll go back, tho not as often as I would if it were a little cheaper.
