New York: Narcissa - California Cuisine – Farm to Table - Comes to NYC. Right round the corner from Cooper Union and nestled in the entrance of Andre Balazs's The Standard Hotel in the East Village, is his and Michelin-starred chef John Fraser’s restaurant called Narcissa, and as the name suggests, self love, the food is there certainly to be enjoyed and indulge in.
Narcissa. There is a choice of two dining rooms, one featuring a large open kitchen and chef counter, the other overlooking a charming private garden, allowing for al fresco dining in warmer months.
