Telepan Local offers a casual, tapas-style American menu inspired by the seasons. Dishes include arancini with bone marrow and parmesan aioli; fried watercress with chili oil and cashews, brussels sprouts & fingerling salad with a coddled egg; lamb tartare with fennel and black olive; as well as snapper with pickled beets and bitter greens. For a sweet ending, Pastry Chef Larissa Raphael offers traditional layer cakes cut by the fat slice, along with stacked sundaes and rustic tarts.<br />

"Unique food items. Smaller portions than upper west side branch and starker atmosphere. Gets very noisy when moderately busy. Would consider if walking about area and want to eat, but would not plan as special trip. Service, however, was very polite, efficient and accommodating."

Onegin is where you'll go when your usual palace just isn't opulent, caviar-y or crazy enough. You'll find smoked sturgeon by crystal-chandelier light. House-infused honey-pepper vodka from a bar made of 200-year-old Ukrainian birch. And borscht. Delivered to your red velvet throne by butler-jacket-wearing waiters. <br> <br> Whether you head to the aforementioned bar, or past 19th-century carriage seats and into the brocade dining room, all roads lead to vodka. Available in a carafe, a cocktail or the spiked fisherman's soup (next-level comfort food). <br> <br> The rest of the menu comes courtesy of the city's only operational Russian pechka, a wood-burning furnace that would have once been used to heat a czar's castle. Now, it'll heat your quail on a stick. <br> <br> And while you wait between courses of pike caviar and pork belly pâté, you'll read Pushkin, his sketches and passages from secret journals have been etched around the restaurant in goose feather quill.

"Music could be a bit softer, but was still reasonably quiet. Would like to have more authentic heavy Russian bread. But overall enjoyable experience."
