Chef Andrew Weissman is a legend to fans of his dear departed Le Rêve. And Signature is that tiny riverside experiment all grown up. The dining room, outdoor tables, and menu evoke both a French villa and a South Texas hacienda. Executive chef Laurent Rea (formerly at the Fig Tree) brings finesse to such complex dishes as a fois gras torchon and bucatini with uni, the tubular pasta in a carbonara-like preparation with smoked sea urchin as the bacon stand-in. Roasted lamb takes caramelized tomato and carrot and makes it all new with sumac and za’atar. And need we mention little touches that make a memorable evening: hot yeasty rolls and butter swirled with vegetable ash, paper-thin citrus for your water, a sorbet intermezzo, and tiny petit fours.
