This is one of the few stunning old New York "supper club" restaurants. A sublime mix of red leather banquets, subdued monkey lights and the magnificent murals take you back to a time when one dressed to the nines for dinner and drank elegant cocktails. This was a restaurant week find for me....the service was perfect and unpretentious. The food was very good and worth the pre-fixe. The elegant cocktails and wine are obscenely overpriced as is the standard dinner menu. I am happy to splurge at certain "foodie" places such as Gramercy Tavern but this is not that level of quality. It's certainly worth a splurge for a special occasion or if your on expense account.
