You can really tell when a chef really knows what he is doing! Kent is that chef coming up with unique delicious food that combines interesting flavors and beautiful presentations! The charred carrots, razor clams and lemon thyme was so wonderfully flavorful! Next we had the jicama, peas and pecorino, so refreshing. Following that we had the caramelle which had morels and chèvre, oh so good! The branzino was perfectly cooked with an excellent green tomato sauce. For that entree could have had some more bread to get all the sauce . Grilled pork chop was a large chop with very tasty mustard sauce. The Parker type rolls
with the infusion of olives and garlic were special too. Our dessert was orange creamsicle like with a toasted marshmallow on top, ice cream was superb . Even the coffee was of the highest quality. The staff was well trained and friendly
We will be back to try many of the other dishes.
Excellent food for a reasonable price and great ambiance.
Best restaurant in NY right now
Loved the desserts. Appreciate the complimentary dessert on top of our order. Must try place!!!
One word to describe, " EXCELLENT " for every dish !
Spent a very enjoyable evening at Crown Shy. Pleasant room, friendly, helpful and appropriately attentive service, solid cocktails, tasty array of food in nicely thought out portions and very nice wine choices.
The food was great, no complaints. Relatively cheap for high end restaurant in Manhattan. The only thing I didn't like was the feel/vibe. Seemed better for business meeting rather than birthday dinner.
octopus, carrots, caramelle pasta, cheesecake is a must!
Unbelievably delicious. Not a single bad dish. Everything from the complimentary pulled apart olive loaf with labne butter to the oysters, cauliflower, gruyere fritters, beef tartare, caramelle, glazed faro with oxtail and bone marrow, charred octopus, roasted short ribs (wow the roasted short ribs!), sticky toffee pudding with apple sorbet, and roasted banana ice cream were all incredible and great for sharing. The cocktails are amazing. Try an old fashioned or their specialty RIP cocktail to whet your palette and a Sauternes or port to finish the memorable meal. Tables are nicely spaced with an open view of the kitchen to allow for a comfortable dining experience. Pricing is moderate with most dishes under $20. The exception being the roasted short rib which is prepared for 2, but can easily be shared by more than 2 and worth every penny! I Everyone is welcoming, friendly, and sharp. Very happy to welcome Chown Shy as neighbors! Looking forward to being a frequent patron.
The food was outstanding and the people working there that we interacted with were so nice.
Beautiful, creative food. The flavors were all amazing— starting from crafted cocktails all the way through to dessert-- there is not a misstep on the menu. Try everything but do not miss the short ribs!! It is all amazing.
Amazing value?! What a culinary experience, fun yet high level. I would come back for just cocktails, or special occasions, or just a night out with friends. We loved it and were very impressed. Be back soon!
Everything from start till end was fabulous. Outstanding dishes such as beef, chicken and cavateli. But, in this restaurant i could not find a dish that wasn't good. It was like one dish comes and you think WOW thats great and then the next one comes and it only gets better. This is what sets apart a great restaurant from average restaurants. This will be a restaurant where i can proudly take someone and impress them. Highly recommend this restaurant..
Crown Shy is amazing! They did a fantastic job taking what they learned from Eleven Madison Park and Del Posto and transformed it into a much more accessible, yet fantastically delicious, brand new restaurant.
Everything we tried was wonderful, starting with probably the best complementary bread we've ever tasted. The dishes are well portioned and the staff is great. The desserts are all on point as well. Highly recommended. Go before more people realize what a gem just opened in FiDi.
