Café Centro is a bustling midtown brasserie with a stylish look that echoes the glamour of Paris in the 1930's. Guests can watch our chef as he prepares French-inspired cuisine with Mediterranean accents and sear top quality steaks. Pastry chef Ken Larsen's sumptuous desserts are not to be missed. The well priced wine list has received numerous Wine Spectator awards and has been voted "Best Beaujolais Bistro". Regular wine dinners are well attended. The attached Beer Bar is a great place for New York’s best burger, a casual lunch or to unwind over craft beers and cocktails. For parties of 12 or more please call our Catering Department 212-949-8248.Visit our other great restaurants by clicking on the link below. <br /><br /><br />The Patina Restaurant Group (http://www.patinagroup.com)

"Three out of four dishes in our lunch were winners, the frisée salad, however, was a big disappointment. Very pleased with Atlantic salmon, etc. and also appreciative of wait staff & reservationist."

Located on a unique garden plaza with romantic East River views, Riverpark represents a dynamic culinary destination in Manhattan’s Kips Bay neighborhood. Riverpark reflects Tom Colicchio's overall vision as restaurateur, and Chef Sisha Ortuzar's creative concept showcasing the restaurant's own urban farm just feet away from the kitchen. Riverpark's modern American menus change daily, highlighting seasonal ingredients from local farms, Greenmarkets and Riverpark Farm.

"Beyond the insightful and solicitous service and delicious meal, we were especially appreciative that our table for two was held for us on a Friday night when we were delayed 30 minutes by a traffic standstill. Every dish was a treat. And the birthday commemoration at the end was just right (so were the terrific desserts :)).
One suggestion - it would be great to have in the little "Parking" box at your web site (for cut & paste) more precise directions to the garage, to include how to go from the FDR Drive, as well as the name of the building, as it is a tricky area -- the complimentary parking is a wonderful perk, when successful in finding it. :)
