Though it doesn't get the same type of raves as his other restaurants, this casual offering from Thomas Keller packs them in just the same. You start out with "what might be the best baguette in the city" and continue with lighter fare like the quiche du jour or chicken and dumpling soup. Or you can recharge with "some of the best macarons ever" after a day of shopping in the Time Warner Center. A number of people seemed shocked by the "high prices"; obviously, they didn't see the letters TK engraved into the food.
