The Obamas have great taste in restaurants. That was the appropriate conclusion to draw after they dined at Estela back in 2014. The cardinal eatery from culinary wiz Ignacio Mattos is just over five years old, and it has aged well. The menu has evolved thoughtfully, with its timeless dishes like beef tartare laced with crispy sunchokes, luscious ricotta dumplings, and savory mussels escabeche on toast remaining as delicious as ever. Hot tip: beyond dinner, this cool and casual SoHo spot over-delivers during lunch and brunch.
