From the team behind Nolita's Musket Room, Raf’s is a cozy new spot in Noho that feels like a modest chateau. In the candlelit space, you‘ll see vintage iron chandeliers, an open kitchen with a wood-burning oven, and ceilings painted with clouds that might lower your blood pressure if you stare at them long enough. The menu is French and Italian, and, while it isn’t especially groundbreaking, the food is just as comforting as all those fake clouds. Try the roast chicken served under a pile of fresh herbs, and get the olive oil-soaked fluke crudo. There are also a few pastas and house-baked breads, in addition to stuff like escargots and a dry-aged côte de boeuf for two. Breakfast and lunch are coming soon.
