Highlights from executive chef Marcel Childress’ new fall menu at this popular downtown destination include a bacon-wrapped Opah belly served with lobster cream sauce and Okinawan potato chips, steamed oxtail dumpling served with pork jus and a rustic shepherd’s pie made with braised lamb shoulder, mushroom, peas, carrot, pearl onion and Gruyere mash – perfect for when the weather eventually turns a little chillier. 535 5th Ave (619) 232 1747
