The New YorkTimes' top pick for "best new restaurant 2014." "Bâtard brings back the fun. You hear it in the voices and see it in the smiles of customers as they realize that this place revolves around them, not the artistry on the plate. There is plenty of that in Markus Glocker’s cooking, but it doesn’t demand supplication. The menu is à la carte, hardly a radical idea but one that puts the customer back in charge."
