Order the scallops! Amazing dish with a great combination of flavors. They also have happy hour with great prices on beer and wine.

They make a nice martini here in a very pleasant setting. You can sit in the lobby at small tables or comfortable chairs for a quiet drink or head into the bar if you are looking for more energy.

Love this place so much we ate there two nights in a row before seeing a play next door. Green salad, lobster potato puffs, kale Caesar , short rib poutine, pizza, oysters and fresh pasta were all excellent. Really pretty decor in a lovely hotel.

culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
