It’s best to put a table in Frevo, New York’s Greenwich Village, so that you can walk straight past it several times, like on a dark, light rainy Saturday night.

This unique restaurant is in a cunning disguise – hidden behind an unobtrusive art gallery.

And to access it, stand behind one of the real works of art, the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry style (but no password required).

Located in New York’s Greenwich Village, Restaurant Frevo is hidden behind a discreet art gallery at 48 W8th St.

MailOnline's Ted Thornhill is visible on the secret door of a (real) art gallery leading to a Speakeasy-style eatery.

The art gallery holds solo exhibitions by well-established and up-and-coming artists such as Brooklyn-based Khari Turner and French abstract painter Toma-L.

Behind the art is a 14-seat counter with subdued lighting, wrapped in a clean stainless steel kitchen. Here, a well-choreographed brigade of highly talented chefs, led by Brazil’s Franco Samponia, creates the finest avant-garde tasting menu.

I stop at the end and find that everyone who enters is excited and dazzled.

Frevo is certainly one of the most eaten places in Manhattan, so it should be.

Ingredients from osetra caviar to colora drums, turbots to wild strawberries are pushed to the limit of their diversity with a series of fun and delicious dishes.

And if you have a wine flight in favor of the award-winning French sommelier Quentin Vauleon, you’ll get a bonus on your palette thanks to seven interesting products by the glass, from the white Santorini Familia 2020 by Hatzidakis to the Uivo Rose in Portugal. There is an odyssey.

The restaurant states: ‘The hidden door is offered as a homage to New York City’s rich Speakeasy cocktail bar scene. The idea is to meet the expectations of guests, start the experience before the first bite, and set the mood for a fine dining experience.

The outside is the art and the inside is the art of cooking.
