At Stephen Starr’s Veronika, the Lowest-Cost Entrees Stun as Much as the Opulent Space

Stephen Starr’s borscht-slinging Veronika is an objectively opulent restaurant. In the grand dining room, located on the second floor of the Fotografiska museum on Park Avenue South, one will encounter multi-tiered brass chandeliers, leather chairs, 20-foot ceilings, cushy blue banquettes, indulgent French and Eastern European fare from chef Robert Aikens, and good osetra caviar. Spending a lot of money here is not difficult.

But for such a posh venue, patrons can also still get in and out for a fair price, all while sampling some of Veronika’s marquee dishes, including the squirty comfort classic that is chicken Kiev. In fact, there’s such a wide range of prices that those who order frugally can save more than $100 than those who don’t. That’s prime territory for the second edition of Value Option.
