Excellent service, and good quality food at a reasonable price. If you are visiting the Empire State it is on the next Street.

I had the steak and my husband the pizza, and we shared a bottle of white wine, It was all very nice, and we had no complaints. We would eat there again.

Stayed in Hotel 35 next door - had breakfast there as part of the room rate! Basic food (scrambled egg tasted suspiciously of dried egg) and indifferent service.
