“You won't know what's coming — not even your waiter does. To create this ad hoc experience, the kitchen draws from a wide-ranging repertoire…It's better than good. It's great!”

“There was a moment, early on in one of my meals at Ethan Stowell's new Staple & Fancy when I was pretty sure I was eating at one of the best restaurants I'd been to in a year. It was this rabbit terrine that so moved me—a perfect wedding of intent, technique, and ingredients.”

“Comfortable in its workingman’s skin—love the original painted brick—and veritably bursting with diners all night long. Staple and Fancy has charisma.”
