I no longer live in NY, but have been going to El Faro with my family for over 40 years. I heard a terrible rumor that it has since closed, but I hope it is not true. Four generations in my family have dined there. The Chicken Villaroy and Lobster in White Sauce are tied for my favorite dishes there. I was last there in September of 2012. The tables are small and seating is tight. As a kid I was always fascinated by the working "dumbwaiter" that brought the food up from the kitchen in the restaurant's basement. I also enjoyed the house salad dressing and sangrias! The meals came with either saffron rice or home made potato chips. Great memories were made there. (As well as some not so great ones that had nothing to do with the restaurant itself, just the date I happened to be there with at the time.)
