I am looking forward to checking out Atera in TriBeCa . This tiny restaurant, which was designed with only 14 counter seats, offers up tasting menus by Portland celebrity chef Matthew Lightner. The menu and interiors were conceptualized around the chef's foraging background. To reinforce the chef's indigenous ingredients approach, there is a vertical herb garden filled with rosemary, mint, thyme and lavender. The rolling bar cart (pictured below), used to make custom drinks table side, is a fabulous idea for a restaurant tight on space. 77 Worth Street, NYC.
