Now open in the space formerly home to Trois in Midtown, Article 14 offers classic fare in a dark and cozy yet elegant atmosphere. Headlined by Chef Bernie McDonough, who, while not a James Beard nominee himself, has, in fact, worked with many of them; Article 14 complements neighbor Olmsted, a lunch-and-brunch-only business spot, by serving lunch, dinner and cocktails daily.
Article 14 features a wood paneled bar and a Lawyer Wall of Fame complete with portraits of prominent attorneys in the area, painted by local artist William Rossoto. The bar focuses on bourbon, and drinkers are invited to craft their own Manhattan (with the bartender's help pouring). Menu options include angel hair pasta with butter-poached lobster, fish cheek tacos, fried chicken chopped salad, grilled plantation quail, and cous cous macaroni and cheese.
