If you're into adventurous eating, try Agern at Grand Central Station. It's a Michelin One-Star Restaurant. To get that star you have to be a cut above. We started with complimentary sparkling water and some very good dark sourdough bread and very spreadable sweet butter....More

Great choice of beers, first course was just ok and main was good. Overall rating is a little bit too expensive for what it is, but worth a visit.

I would recommend the following for first course: monkfish, sunchokes and tartar. For second course the grilled broccoli and...More

Four of us went to Agern (which means acorn in Danish) to celebrate a birthday. The person who made our reservations asked for the one booth in the restaurant. It was a terrific location, almost a private alcove, away from the noise of the main...More
