Artisanal Fromagerie, Bistro and Wine Bar showcases the formidable creativity and passion of Chef-Proprietor Terrance Brennan who adds playful twists to classic French bistro dishes. Selecting only premium ingredients, Brennan’s commitment to the use of artisanal, sustainable and organic products is evident in the quality of each dish. Recalling a bustling Parisian bistro, Artisanal’s handsome Art Deco interior offers the sophisticated French specialties one might expect in Paris. As the name implies, Artisanal features a scrumptious selection of 250 hand-crafted cheeses from around the world. In the back of the dining room is the cheese cave, a temperature and humidity controlled room, where a number of the world’s finest artisanally-made cheeses are aged to optimum ripeness and peak flavor. Adjacent to the dining room is the wine bar, which boosts 75 wines by the glass.

"Usually eat dinner here but tried the brunch. I was very impressed. The food choices were numerous and all the four of us tried were delicious! And we shared a small fondue which was plenty. I will have brunch here again!"

For sweeping ocean views and Spanish small (and large plates), it doesn’t get any better than Amada, the Atlantic City outpost of Chef Jose<br />Garces’ famous Philadelphia tapas restaurant. Amada transports you to straight to Spain, where sangria flows from terra cotta pitchersand the smell of sizzling chorizo entices you to order just one more plate for the table.<br /><br />House Specialties<br />Spanish Octopus, Garlic Shrimp, Tortilla Española, Lobster Paella, Whole Roasted Suckling Pig (must be ordered 48 hours in advance),<br />House Made Fresh Fruit Sangrías.<br /><br />Private Parties: Amada welcomes groups of all sizes. Events can be booked throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms seven days a week. For parties of 12 or more, please call our private events team to schedule your reservation at (609) 225-4939 or email Jenna.Moore@garcesgroup.com

"The food was very very good - some surprisingly so. The restaurant is really pretty and the lighting is great. You can forget you are in a Casino. I would definitely go back."

Celebrated Chef David Burke unveils David Burke Fishtail, a new innovative seafood concept on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Located in a historic townhouse, the bi-level eatery combines casual late-night dining with a casual bar in the ground floor bar with traditional sit-down service in the main second floor dining room. Fishtail offers the freshest fare – provided by Litchfield Farms as well as their own company-owned fishing boat out of Brielle, NJ. Known for its sustainable seafood, Litchfield Farms compliments Burke’s &amp; Hara’s beliefs in providing diners with the highest quality ingredients that do not compromise on integrity. Together, they have created a menu of 85 percent sustainable seafood which is coded with levels of authenticity for guests’ reference. The 120 seat restaurant is located at 135 East 62nd St. between Park & Lexington Aves.

"Went for artichoke week and ate the special menu but was really disappointed by the fact the artichoke wasn't really featured. It played a role in all courses, even dessert, but I never saw one recognizable piece of artichoke. It was infused or mashed into items but artichoke was never really the star and in some cases appeared to be absent altogether.
The place is really nice. The service is very good and the food was good but not outstanding or super interesting. The desserts are fun."

Picholine offers contemporary French-Mediterranean cuisine in both it's elegant dining rooms and casual, no reservation cheese and wine bar. Perhaps best known for introducing the European cheese cart to discerning American diners, Chef Brennan also specializes in Wild Game and innovative contemporary Mediterranean dishes. <br><br><br />The restaurant received a James Beard Foundation nomination for the country’s outstanding restaurant in 2007, and was awarded two stars in the 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011editions of Michelin Guide New York City.
