Literally days before quarantine hit New York City, the Tribeca tasting menu Atera restaurant opened a wine bar next door, serving small plates. They’ve stuck it out through the pandemic (while Atera is closed), and have a great outdoor dining situation with tables scattered down Worth Street. The menu is split into small plates and “larger” plates, but the larger plates aren’t huge. That said, they are delicious, particularly the scallop fried rice and salmon tartare. There’s also a very long, spiral-shaped lobster ravioli that looks like an art project.
Farra is keeping things upscale even on the sidewalk - dishes are served on real plates, and from a service perspective, it’s not surprising that this place is connected to a fine dining establishment. Check it out for a special night out, outdoors.
