NYC equivalent of San Fran's ZUNI?

coasts Jan 12, 2010 08:54 PM

i recently had the pleasure of dining at Zuni in San Fran and have since been looking for something similar in NYC. i've been to Five Points a few times and find the food hit or miss. haven't tried Cookshop yet. any thoughts?

      Which characteristics of Zuni do you like?

        If you're looking for comparable food, try Beacon.

          Just want to say that I have had nothing but lousy meals at Beacon. Granted the last one was a year ago, but still.

          How about Hearth? Wonderful ingredients, creative without being fussy, very pleasant atmosphere, terrific wine list.

            Hearth was the one the first came to mind when I read the OP's post.
            Beacon - I don't think so.
