A Cause For Celebration

We decided to honor and celebrate one of our colleagues at Lenny's. It was approximately 20 of us. The private room that we had was very accommodating. For a group of our size, the room wasn't to large and impersonal, nor was it too small and confining. Actually it was just right, a nice intimate... read more

My hubby took me there for my birthday. Their food was amazing. Their oysters so fresh. Their veal was so tender and juicy. The waitstaff was very friendly. I really enjoyed every moment.

Back in the 70's I briefly lived on Pitkin Avenue next to Howard Beach. Lenny's came to Howard Beach after a long run in Brooklyn's Flatbush section where I believe it originated in the 1960' as a pizzeria.

Whomever said you can't get a bad Italian meal in NY, never ate here. I get the feeling this place is about churn & burn more than the dining experience. Food was flying to our table because I think a lot was pre made. We love baked clams, these were so over cooked that the clam was chewy and almost... More

Every dish is good. Specials are reasonable and staff is great. I think they need to update the menus more often (January specials listed in a May menu)? It's not a big deal though, I'll be back!
