Claud

$$$$

Just when we thought it was physically impossible for a restaurant opened by Momofuku alumni and serving “European” food to excite us, Claud rolls in and upends our expectations. Eating here feels like hanging in the cozy-yet-chic East Village apartment of your chef friends who don’t make a big deal about how talented they are. The menu will change seasonally, but right now, you want to make sure you order the razor clams, tomato mille feuille, and swordfish au poivre. Finish with a dish of ice cream and the devil’s food cake for two, which reminds us of that chocolate cake in Matilda (in a good way). We promise you will leave very happy.
