Whenever our kids are away or under the ridiculously effective eyes of grandparents we flee to Carlyle - 17 years straight. It continues to always be consistently superb with seamless wait attention and an upbeat vibe on the main floor. We enjoyed local microbrew - vanilla creme brûlée and a mountain of homemade banana pudding. We were seated immediately and the tables are far enough apart to not have to tune out other conversations. A nice way to cap off a long Friday.
