This is definitely an evening bar. Really friendly service and lovely cocktails. The food looked good so I'm sure I'll pop back there to eat.

What a great little gem this restaurant is. We came here with friends who know the area well, but have never been able to get a reservation. Wow, I'm so glad we could. I started with the tea smoked mussels and progressed to the Ricotta gnudi and added the Maine lobster. Absolutely superb. So good that we came back a... More

A recent visit to Vivaldi on a Saturday night had something good for everyone. An affordable Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, fresh salads, a heaping plate of spaghetti and meatballs and the special that night, soft shell crabs. We sat next to two large tables of a family gathering, and the noise they generated was deafening. But we don't fault the restaurant for... More

I've been wanting to try Saxon + Parole for a while now and was not disappointed. It accurately bills itself as a place for grilled meats and fish. Started with some west coast oysters. They were very good although I had to ask two waitresses several times for the list and never actually got it. I was just told what... More

I try and visit here every time I am in New York, their brunch is fantastic, I would however recommend booking a table as they do get very busy! Everytime I go I always order the BLAT, (bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato) and am never disappointed! They also offer great brunch time cocktails which my partner and I thoroughly enjoy!... More

Our Friend Elie recommended this place and we were not disappointed. It's an airy modern/industrial space with nice touches like crystal decanters around. The drink list is outstanding. The oysters were extra fresh. We shared charcuterie that really could have served as the whole lunch. Ryne had what he described as the best hamburger ever - even better than the... More

Highlight was an outrageously good grilled octopus and calamari salad with radish,c leery and capers. Possibly the most enjoyable dish so far on my trip and was enough to make me regret ordering the flatiron steak which turned out to be a rather bland. Wife's burger was very good though not quite the high standard one leading publication built it... More
