Great food with intense attention to detail. They do terrains and a pot de creme to die for.

The $40 five course menu every Sunday is one of the absolute best values in the city.

Their prix fixe dinners are an incredible deal. Especially since they're a BYOB.

Good Food Not Too Bad $ and Cozy – After reading reviews of Pumpkin and hearing some friends say what they thought, I decided to make my own decision and go. We went on a Sunday and they offer a 5 course tasting for $35 per person. Not a bad price for what you get. A chilled soup of potatoes and celery(foam) with a oyster tartare in the center was surprisingly light. Although I would've preferred a warm soup this did it right for a starter. Next was a Crudo for me and a Chartucerie plate for my wife. Crudo was a Japanese fish, i cannot remember the name, with english peas, pickled beets and radishes. It was served with the traditional dressing of Olive oil and some citrus and beet juice. It was Great! The fish was cold and fresh with a melt in your mouth feeling everytime. The Chartucerie plate was 3 slightly exotic meats. We didn't hear her explain them due to the large party just popping champagne! But one sausage was very game-like perhaps a venison, and one was like a pate' the 3rd and best meat was quail perhaps with a nice stone-ground mustard. Very good. 2 out of 3 were tasty. The best thing we thought was actually the greens salad. Nice mixed baby greens with a few beets and a light olive oil and salt and pepper dressing. There was quite a bit of salt on it but it made it taste better! The Entrees was a Tilefish "medallion" and a Duck Breast with goat cheese. The Tilefish was seared top and bottom and done perfectly. Nice and flaky! Good flavor with its parnters on the plate. The duck breast was seared to perfection and nice and rare in the middle. Wow the sear on the top with fat was such a great combination. Paired with the goat cheese it was phenomenal. Actually, that was the best part of the meal. Wait, the desserts..... Chocolate torte with a homemade chocolate gelato on top with carmelized bananas was great but very very rich. Not as good as the Olive Oil Cake wit passionfruit curd and wild blueberries! wow was it good but it was small. I could've eaten 2 or 3 myself!!!!!
