Were on rare NY visit and long-time locals offered to take us to their favorite place...it was an excellent experience. The ambiance and decor met our mid-American expectations for a NY local eatery. The service was helpful and attentive. We had a delicious and varied antipasto platter that was so generous we took the remnants home. The two in our group who tried the skirt steak special thought it was quite good. I relied on the waiters suggestion of the bacon-wrapped grilled scallops; they were moist, flavorful and generously portioned. We would certainly never have found this place if the locals had not taken us; it is a local gem!
