Acclaimed Australian chef Shaun Hergatt’s Vestry, in NYC’s SoHo, offers a high-end dining experience in a sexy and chic yet relaxed environment.
Focusing on a seasonally driven menu, Chef Hergatt highlights produce grown on nearby farms and seafood, meats and poultry carefully selected by the world’s top harvesters enhanced by Japanese ingredients and plated artfully, and playfully.
With spring now upon us, the latest menu is awash with fresh and beautiful plates designed to be shared or devoured alone. In fact, the new menu page dedicated to small bites ensures that each pretty offering can be enjoyed in one bite, making it the perfect entree or appetiser.
