The ghosts of underwriters past must be watching in wonderment at the goings-on in the old Met Life Building, where since 1998, restaurant maestro Danny Meyers' Union Square Hospitality Group has been operating a modern French restaurant. The high-ceilinged Art Deco dining room, with its views of Madison Park and its limited-edition Riedel decanters on display, can't help but impress, but the main attractions are Executive Chef Daniel Humm's food and the outstanding wine list by John Ragan, wine director. (Try the Lavender Honey-Glazed Muscovy Duck for Two, paired with Domaine des Relagnes' 2001 Les Petits Pieds d'Armand Châteauneuf-du Pape.) Also, take a gander at the Scrabble board wine list near the bar.
