When a restaurant rolls out a high-caliber, $100 tasting menu, it usually creates a lot of fanfare and reservations get booked weeks in advance. Not so with this one - yet. All Good Things is a recently opened food market in TriBeCa - they've been serving Blue Bottle Coffee and Dickson's Farmstand Meats since last year. But, the real action (at least in our opinion) is the restaurant that's operating out of the space's basement, which has not landed on the food world's radar just yet even though it's been up and running since spring.
It's only open Thursday through Saturday night for dinner, and the only menu available is a multicourse tasting that is usually $100 per person.
The restaurant is unmarked and the cooks serve and explain each dish - it's more like eating at a chef's dinner party then a standard TriBeCa eatery. Ryan Tate, formerly of Savoy, is behind the menu, and he's cooking up dishes like grilled veal cheeks with English peas, black trumpet mushrooms and pistachio purée. We've only heard a little buzz coming out of here, but it's been all good things (get it?!) so we don't expect this place to stay secret for long. The reservations-only restaurant is at 102 Franklin Street - you can book at table by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. More info here.
