Modern setting, nondescript food

I had a business dinner on a Tuesday night with some colleagues and customers. The place was super-conveniently located at the foot of the 345 Park building where we had our meetings. The place has modern decor, with a single cavernous dining space with cool wood paneling in the ceiling. It was... read more

PROS: Prix Fixe $20 three course brunch menu CONS: Brunch was average and no alcohol service before noon. This smart, bright, and clean restaurant had great promise both from our concierge and from our own investigation, but the food was only average and not stellar. However, for the price, one can hardly complain!

Terrific brunch on the weekend. Two courses and a drink. The food was excellent. Started with a baguette and then an appetizer and main dish. Really wonderful and service was excellent.

My friend and I made reservations for brunch on a Sunday and had the brunch prix fixe. We both had the Soupe à l’Oignon Gratinée and the Orange French Toast. To say it was incredible was an understatement. Additionally, the service was exceptional. We liked it so much that we had to repeat the experience and returned for breakfast the... More

We had the beet salad, crab cake, lobster risotto, the grilled whole fish(branzino), chocolate beignets and the chocolate tasting plate. I can't say enough about the service. Very polite and timely for a couples night out (not too attentive). We took some of the beignets back to the room but everything else was happily consumed. Left a big fat tip.

The modern decor is not our taste, but the food and service made up for it. Summary: - Very open. Even if it was full, it wouldn't feel crowded. - The Prix Fixe menu was a good value. - You can find a nice bottle of wine for > $50 - With a larger crowd I would imagine it is... More

We fould this place just walking past. On a wintry evening, it was busy but personal attention from staff was good. We both had fish mains which were fresh and well cooked. Wine by the glass was reasonably priced by NYC standards. The deserts were amazing - the chevre cheesecake took sweet and sour to new heights, while the chocolate... More

Restaurant week menu was very good. Wine list was reasonable and varied. The duck and Coq au vin were super. Our waiter was professional and efficient. This was a great place to have a quiet dinner.

We had a business dinner here, just picked it based on the reviews here onsite and the food was really good! We were with 8 people, all picked something different and we didn't have to wait that long. The crabcakes and burger, mmm my mouth is watering again! The place was crowded and very very noisy but the quality food... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
