"It’s possible to enjoy a decent gourmet meal for yourself at the ambitious, preciously named new midtown restaurant Betony (it’s a kind of herb) provided you ignore the location (on a hectic stretch of 57th Street) and the feng shui-challenged room and décor, much of which seems to have been left over from the previous tenant."
— Adam Platt, New York
