REVIEW

Maze

Opened in 2006 in the refurbished London Hotel, Maze is a stylish, more casual alternative to the elegant formality of the adjacent Gordon Ramsay at the London.  With a modern design of steel, glass and chrome by David Collins, a fantastic bar, and a lively, bustling atmosphere, the ambience is ideal for a business lunch, afternoon tea or an upscale dinner.  Best of all, the cuisine comes from the same kitchen as Gordon Ramsay at the London, ensuring quality and top-notch ingredients.

The French-inspired, Asian-inflected cuisine is modeled on Gordon Ramsay's restaurant of the same name in London.  The menu is divided into small, medium and large plates that can be combined and shared at will.  There is also a five-course tasting menu.  The fluency of the kitchen is evident in classic dishes like the dry aged strip loin with pommes Anna and hollandaise or the risotto with winter mushrooms, parmesan and parsley.  It is easy to forget about, or underestimate, the more casual sibling restaurants of the giants that bestride NYC's culinary landscape (witness the habitual neglect of Nougatine), but Maze is a worthy restaurant in its own right, deserving of a special visit.
