Location Description:

Voice is located in a cavernous two-story high former bank lobby with enormous faux marble pillars and vaulted ceilings. An octagonal bar occupies the center of the towering room. You feel very important just sitting in such a majestic space. Chef Greg Lowry, a young man best known for his work at The Rockwood Room under Chef Michael Dei Maggi, is turning out some stellar food at Voice. And his team - including pastry chef Audrey Sam and charcutier Adam Garcia - are making some of the finest food to be found downtown, served with a far more casual flare than under Voice's previous chef, Michael Kramer. The pheasant duo with beer-braised cabbage is a charming take on old-school comfort food while items like A Study In Beets are tongue-in-cheek but still elegantly constructed. At breakfast, Lowry takes it down a few notches but the Scram & Sam with goat cheese, chives and house smoked salmon isn't to be missed.
