Tree

December 23, 2008

I went to Tree in the East Village with my brother before the holidays. Chef-owner Andrew Robinson, formerly of Gramercy Tavern, took over the old Brunetta's restaurant on First Avenue. The small, narrow restaurant, with a backyard garden, serves French bistro food. We started with two salads followed by steak frites and mushroom risotto with truffle oil, one of the daily specials. We also had a reasonably priced bottle of Chinon. The food was decent with attentive service.
