Leonti, the restaurant that replaced Dovetail at 103 West 77th Street off of Columbus Avenue, is focusing on the high end of the market, like its predecessor. It opened at the start of the month. There are lots of inventive Italian dishes on the menu, including cinnamon fettucine with wild boar ragu. The lobster pasta’s pretty snazzy too, as seen below.
Entrees at Leonti tend to be in the $30 range, though the Branzino is $50 and the veal chop costs $52. See the menu below.
Boulevard Seafood just opened on Broadway between 105th and 106th, replacing Henry’s. The menu’s got day boat scallops, crab cakes, poke, and a few items for land-lovers like the Kale salad, the vegetable mezze plate and the duck spring rolls. “I have to say the food is great, the seafood menu is a welcome addition to the UWS, and with the same staff the ambiance is just as warm and friendly,” wrote David, who sent the image of the menu below.
