Lovely steak-specialist in the meat packing district, attentive staff, extensive menu set in an old meat packing warehouse now looking much cooler. Great area around for a night out too.

This restaurant is at the meatpacking district close to the rail yards. It is very nice and pleasant. The food tasted very good. The waiter was nice but kind of insisted on the tip value.

My N Y strip with average, not really a big flavor... creamed spinach was very good as was the fried zucchini. We had the pasta special... also very good. But wasn't feeling it as not... More

Went for brunch with very picky Italian family from Italy. They gave their blessing. Menu somewhat limited but very good quality. Lively atmosphere, slightly noisy as are all NY restaurants.
