Tucked into a tony midtown apartment building with beautiful views over the city, Scaramouche isn't easy to find. But it's worth the effort. Chef Keith Froggett and maitre d’ Carl Corte have been quietly perfecting one of the city’s finest restaurants for over 30 years. Understated and elegant, the menus are laden with luxe ingredients like caviar, foie gras, truffles, and oysters; main dishes include venison loin wrapped in smoked bacon and a rich, red-wine glaze. The wine list has a broad reach, and there's a nice selection of cognacs. The formal dining room, which is best for special occasions, is complemented by the adjoining casual pasta bar and grill.
