Pete Wells awards two stars to Contra, the Lower East Side tasting menu restaurant from Jeremiah Stone and Fabian von Hauske: "I won't forget Contra's pairing of chicken breast with pickled daikon, toasted sesame seeds and blood sausage. The sausage had been transformed into a swipe of soft, tangy, beet-red paste, dotted with marjoram leaves and tart nubs of dried raspberries. It all came together in a way so unexpected and right that I had to shake my head." [NYT]
