Telepan is an urban restaurant that serves innovative farm-to-table dishes and wine in upscale surrounds. Helmed by chef-owner Bill Telepan, the market-drive menu features over two dozen dishes (excluding dessert). Menu highlights include the house-smoked book trout and lobster Bolognese. Guests can dine a la carte, or spoil themselves with a lavish four-course prix fixe dinner. This restaurant also boasts an impressive wine list, carefully curated to complement the dining menu.
Tucked on the ground floor of an elegant townhouse, Telepan is a nice pick for special occasions. The restaurant's four-course tasting menu (which comes with optional wine pairing) provides the perfect culinary tonic for a romantic night out. Telepan is open for lunch and dinner, Monday through Sunday.
Too bad they were forced to close the next day. They will missed, both as a good neighbor and a great place to go if going to Lincoln Center.
We are always delighted with the wonderful kitchen preparation and service at Telepan. Unhappily, we understand that this fine dining place will soon be gone.
Little did we know that our dinner at Telepan on 5/13 would be my last. My husband and I have been coming here since it opened. It has been our go-to spot for pre-opera and theatre and special occasions. We always walked away feeling we had been well taken care of. Now what will we do? We also celebrated our anniversary there in April...and so glad that we did. Thank you Bill for 10 great years. Hope that you find another spot and begin anew.
Staff was very attentive to our needs and knowledgeable not just of the food, but also knew what to recommend in terms of wine.
Food was Amazing!
service was impeccable.
The combination of smoked trout and (sweet blinis) did not work for me. The pea pancakes dish had a variety of pea based food, but they all taste the same. The beef tartare my husband had was no special (worth a Micheline star restaurant) either. His fetuccini were very good he said.
Fabulous meal. Can't wait to return.
Intimate gem on the upper west side just a block from the park. Delicious food, good wine, cozy atmosphere. Excellent service.
Food was excellent although service was a bit slow. We had our appetizers before our wine arrived
