    I rediscovered Remi 7 years after it fell of my radar. Wow, I didn't know that pasta could taste this good! I'm not kidding you when I say that I was delightfully surprised with every bite. From the apps to the main course to dessert: everything I tried was STELLAR! It's a rare & welcome occassion that I leave a restaurant in NYC thinking, ""wow, that was worth every penny!"" Perhaps more refreshing was the range of dishes. There are no complicated flavor combinations or frilly garnishes or overly structured presentations at Remi--just phenomenal food made with fresh ingredients. A great wine list to accompany the meal. And the staff if excellent. You guys should open one in Connecticut.

    Great new place in the heart of midtown. The restaurant and the staff are stylish and provide good service. The crowd is mid-20's to late 30's. We came for just cocktails, and a comfortable atmosphere. We ended up having one of their tasty pizza's, and risotto, both of which I would highly recommend. The waiter helped us choose a nice full bodied red wine that complimented the food perfectly.The service is great and the Milanese manager on duty is not too shabby either. All in all a great new addition to midtown.
