After paying $98 per person to secure your reservation at Reverence, you’ll be asked whether you want your five-course tasting menu to be protein or vegetable-focused. That’ll be as close to a menu as you’ll receive at this 18-seat chef’s counter in Harlem. After finding your name tag and sitting down, you’ll hear how all of the dishes are inspired by cuisines and ingredients from different parts of California. By far our favorite thing we’ve had here is a mound of creamy uni wrapped in zucchini and served with melted brown butter. While the two-plus-hour dinner could definitely be classified as fine dining, it never feels stuffy thanks to friendly chefs and servers who casually chat with you while making sure that your wine glass is never empty.
