A word from The Exchange at the Setai Wall Street

The Exchange at the Setai Wall Street ushers in a new sensibility to The Financial District. While maintaining The Setai’s striking decor Executive Chef Josh Capone brings his hometown style of San Francisco based Contemporary American cuisine into play. Ingredients are locally sourced and seasonal. Flavors are bold yet balanced. The approachable menu now features both a la carte and prix fixe options for lunch and dinner. Our three course prix fixe menus are now priced at $28 for lunch and $42 for dinner. As an experienced baker his breads and focaccia are now made on premise. To finish a great experience desserts are now under the guidance of former Aureole alum Alise Ciucci.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Exchange.

    We had been fans of SHO and dined there every time we visited New York, more thantwo dozen times. We were very disappointed when the Setai decided that SHO was too upscale for lower Manhattan and hesitated trying The Exchange. When we finally had lunch there this week we were very pleasantly surprised: the food was excellent! We will definitely be back!

    This is a hidden gem in the financial district. The restaurant is beautiful, very much zen like. Space is huge, you don't have to worry about getting kicked out because it's too crowded. The food is surprisingly good. The prix fixe is $42 for 3-course dinner. The menu is changing every week, so there are always something new. Highly recommended.

    It's rare to find a spacious restaurant in Manhattan. This place has beautiful zen like setting, very comfortable. Even though there are not that many selections on the menu, the cuisine actually covers a very wide range. Highly recommended when you need a last minute business or romantic meal in the Financial District.

  • No Hergatt, No Restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    Gone is the deft hand of chef Shaun Hergatt at this former NY Times two-star restaurant, and it shows -- in everything. From the well-meaning but amateur front-of-house staff, to a kitchen that seems bored with the very idea of plating, to tasty but ho-hum dishes. While the restaurant had announced its staff would stay on following Hergatt's departure, the well-tuned machine that once turned out some of the most inventive and surprising food in the city with professionalism and flair, was nowhere to be found on our recent visit for a Valentine's Day dinner. The food was adequate, though the presentation was completely absent (a pile of meat on a plate covering a mushy mound of potatoes was the beef entree). We won't be back.

    This restaurant is tucked away on the second floor of the Setai - near Wall Street. It has very modern, but cozy feel - beautiful decor, quiet and the table are spaced far about so as not to intrude on your neighbor. The tuna tartar and the Sea Bream were perfectly prepared. We also went for ice cream and sorbet tastings. So good!

    There does not seem to be enough space in the Private Note section. My guest and I had very good lunches. The service was good until we asked for the bill. We had to ask 4 times before it arrived. At least twice, I saw the waiter looking at me: I signalled for the bill and he turned and went to another area. When we picked up our coats, mine was wet. It was a dry day, so I have no idea how it got wet in the coat check. There was not damage, but others might complain. You have a good restaurant and I am sure to come back, but some things need correction.

    Entering The Exchange through a passageway filled with interesting wall hangings, several of them beautifully framed African-looking brushes and necklaces, is in itself a dramatic experience. The dining room is spacious and tables are far apart, insuring privacy. We were seated at a glass wall flush with the kitchen, and it was fun to see the prep going on just a few feet away. For Restaurant Week, I chose the parsnip and apple soup garnished with basil oil; it was delicious. My entree was duck confit on a bed of couscous, also wonderfully flavored. My friend had the tongue appetizer and a fish entree. Desserts were a lemon cake and a chocolate mousse with coffee. Service was attentive. A wonderfully relaxing lunch; will return!

    While the decor and the service were of the quality that I would have expected for the price, the food was not up to snuff. The preparation of the cod was good without being great, the execution of several dishes was technically proficient without being inspired, and overall, I got the impression that the food was an afterthought compared to the rest of the place.

    Great intimate restaurant to eat with anyone. The service was excellent & food memorable. A nice touch is that they make their own pastries; which was fresh bread & desserts. Another nice point is that you can see into the kitchen which was spotless even when prepping all the food for patrons. :o)

    The Winter 2013 Restaurant Week lunch menu is not the same as the more appealing one shown on the NYCGO/Restaurant Week website, although some of the items from that menu are still available at the regular prices. In fact, I think only the desserts are the same. Unfortunately this restaurant is not alone in this practice. I had a nice meal but might not have chosen this restaurant based on this menu.

    The Exchange at Setai was nice, but nothing special. Set in the busy financial district, the restaurant is nicely decorated, and sets a nice mood for a quiet dinner. The staff were all very attentive and friendly, and the food was good. But there was nothing special about it. No great city views, no unique menu items, no "signature" to describe it. And with so many other great restaurants in the city, it needs to be special. The best I can offer is that given its location, it's generally quiet for dinner early in the week (M-T-W)so if you want to be able to make comfortable dinner conversation, this provides a good location for that.

    I went here for lunch in March 2012 when it was Sho. We ordered from the prix- fixe and the food was delicious and elegantly prepared. This time, however, the flavors were off and the food was a bit clunky. I had the soup which came with a tremendous noodle in the middle. The soup was actually very good but the portion was too big and the noodle was confusing. For my entree I got the gnocchi with kale pesto. I didn't enjoy it. It kind of reminded me of when I was younger and didn't want to eat veggies so I mixed them up with my mashed potatoes. But instead of my veggies being masked, my mashed just tasted like bad veggies. The kale flavor was a bit off but the gnocchi was made very nicely. I would give it another chance though.

    We just took a chance with Open Table finding the nearest restaurant for us as we were wandering around town. Our reservation was early, 5:30 p.m. so the restaurant was nearly empty since we were beating the rush. That being said, our waiter was very prompt and quite helpful with menu items. The food was fantastic as were the cocktails and ambiance. My wife wanted to try the pumpkin soup so we ordered two but since there was a party of three, one was presented as a complimentary serving. This was very nice! This was a great find and we'll certainly stop by again!

    Being on our honeymoon, we were keen to book a nice restaurant to celebrate. Then just an hour before leaving for the restaurant we discover the restaurant had lost its stars along with its head chef. The website 'Opentable' that still had old information on the former gem is very much to blame. Anyway we decided to give it a go. Clearly the remaining chef is struggling, the food was over or under cooked and in some cases burnt. Wait staff were trying. Do not recommend. Will not go back. Lesson: double check website information.

    SHO Shaun Hergatt is no longer what it what. The 2 Michelin star chef has left, the menu has changed completely. I don't understand why the name didn't change at the same time as the restaurant, but if you're expecting Michelin star quality, you'll be disappointed. The food and service were reasonably good (however, we thought $19 for a Manhattan was excessive), but definitely not worth a trip if you're not in the area.
