We stayed 4 doors down from this restaurant and apart from the night we dined with friends at their home we ate here every night.
The menu is varied and interesting the wine list is good, the staff all excellent and the manager exceptional. Given that we were there in a heat wave where temperatures at night were still +30degrees C ( over 90F) the airconditioning was truely wonderful!!
As it has a bar within the retaurant area it can get a little noisy (why do New Yorkers feel the need to address their friends at levels best used for public meetings - do I care about their love life........?) but don't despair, they mostly don't hang around too long!!
We'll certainly go back there again.
