Tucked away on a sleepy side street in Manhattan’s affluent East 50s, Ze Café comes from a notable husband-and-wife florist team, Zeze and Peggy O’Dea, who have transformed the space (a former carriage house) into an earthy, elegant dining room filled with reclaimed barn wood from the 1800s, peonies, phlox, dusty colored roses and topiaries in terra cotta pots. Chef Jonathan Romans (Tribeca Grill) leads the kitchen, creating sophisticated, seasonal dishes with American natural ingredients, many of which come from Zeze’s upstate farm. A botanical cocktail & wine list pair well with dishes like a perfectly seared & sliced Long Island Duck served on a bed of Organic Carrot Coulis, Zucchini, Baby Carrots and Fig Vinaigrette.
