Has anyone been there recently? Was at old venue before move. Has menu changed with new chef what was your opinion?

Looking for weekday price fixed lunch suggestions at high end Midtown and nearby UE side foodie temples.

    Definitely not the same Aureole as when it was at 61 St. I wasn't particularly "wowed" by Chris Lee's food. I was definitely annoyed when I heard that Charlie replaced his long time maitre d', and haven't returned since. It will be interesting to see what the new chef brings to Aureole--hopefully an improvement.

    You may wish to try Park Avenue Winter; their food is very good, and they offer a prix fixe at lunch.
