At New York Central, a characteristically polished hotel restaurant space overlooking the urban twinkles of the east 40s, New York native Chef Christian Ragano does chic comfort cuisine with a twist. From the house-made freeze dried (and then fried) corn that is part of the multi-tiered flavor-structure in an unbelievably smooth—and dairy free—summer corn soup, to the Mediterranean touches given to a spot-on shrimp and grits, Ragano is just beginning to flex his creative muscles.
