Equinox?

Planning to go to Equinox this weekend with my wife and in-laws; though I understand their Executive Chef left last month. From what I've read, that was a positive development, but am wondering whether its too much of a kitchen in transition.

Has anyone been there in the past few weeks?

    My understanding is that for the time being Chef Todd Gray--the owner of Equinox--will be stepping into the kitchen and will be on-site much more. I don't think you'll have a problem. Through all the various transitions I have found the food at Equinox to be top notch. I don't dine there on a weekly basis but I do about once or twice a year and always find it to be excellent.

      If you are concerned, consider Oval Room. It's right next door i believe and the same type of atmosphere and outstanding food & service. I had forgotten how good it was til a return visit not too long back and it was truly memorable!

        Just to follow up, we ended up going and I'm glad we did. The food was excellent and they did a very good job accomodating the vegetarian in our group. Service was a tad slow.

        I had lunch there on Friday. I thought it was fine, but nothing special. I had the fried oysters and the bouillabaisse. For the money, I think you can do much better.
