For a true Spanish dining experience, visit Michelin Star restaurant Andanada. Our chef, Manuel Berganza, turns traditional Spanish dishes into works of art, all while remaining true to the flavors of Spain. Just a few minutes away from Lincoln Center, this restaurant offers a true Spanish experience to the neighborhood of the Upper West Side.

Taboon means "oven" in Arabic. Considered the heart of our restaurant, the wood fired Taboon oven delivers freshly prepared specialties that are exotic, healthful and full of flavor. Our trademark "Middle Terranean" cuisine blends the traditions of the Mediterranean with Middle Eastern cuisine using French techniques to create dishes that are uniquely delicious. Visit us at 773 10th Avenue, at the corner of 52nd Street, just steps away from the Theater District to find out what everyone's talking about. And ask us about our brand new PRE-THEATRE PRIX FIXE MENU! Reserve a table with us between 5pm and 6:30pm Monday through Friday and enjoy 3 courses accompanied by our famous fresh-baked-to-order foccacia for only $35 per person!

"This was my first time at Hakkasan; and I look forward to many return visits. I was meeting out-of-town friends for brunch before their matinee. What a fantastic experience! Given the beauty of the restaurant - and the food - I can only imagine that it gets even better at night. As there were five of us, our server advised us - quite appropriately - to think about ordering 2 of the standard brunch options - which provide a great selection of dim sum options - and to balance that out with other dim sum options that interested us. Some of the best advice I ever received! We had delicious dumplings for days, These were complemented by crab rolls, vermicelli noodles with shrimp, and some veggies. The service was attentive and helpful. I look forward to my next visit..."

"I went to the Gander with four friends on a Sunday night to celebrate one of their birthdays. From the moment we walked in, the experience was fantastic. We stopped at the bar for some incredible cocktails served by an affable and knowledgeable barman. We then entered the dining which has a beautifully simple aesthetic. We were pleasantly surprised to learn of The Gander's 4-course prix fixe dinner. Not only is it a good deal; it is a great way to sample so many of the incredible dishes on the menu. (It's also a LOT of food; so plan accordingly and do leave room for dessert.) I started with a winter squash and chorizo soup; I would return just for this! Then came a duck pasta dish: amazing. The arctic char was the one dish I did not love. If I were to order it again, I would ask for it to be cooked more thoroughly. Other entrees at the table included the cod and branzino; both received rave reviews. And the dessert - mine was a banana parfait - is out of this world! Complex. And delectable. Other desserts included sorbets and chocolate pudding. All very solid. Next time, I think I might want to try dining at the bar. But there most certainly will be a next time! And I look forward to the food."

At their cozy West Village space, owner Jorge Guzman and Chef Mario Hernandez offer their unique interpretation of classic Mexican cuisine with an innovative cocktail menu of tequila-based drinks. <br />Named by NYLuxury as “one of the top ten restaurants in New York serving Latin food” and as “Top Tequila Bar in the US” by the editors of USA Today, this intimate and stylish cocina offers its guests a blend of passions. Jorge’s desire is to create a sexy and fun space to enjoy creative cocktails with the best of Latin cuisine. While Chef Mario’s dream is to craft dishes to showcase the indigenous ingredients of Mexico, the foods his ancestors enjoyed, and bring those flavors to a new generation. <br />This team has joined forces to offer guests a unique dining experience. We look forward to having you.<br />

"Ofrenda is just solid. I had not been for brunch in awhile; but it was fantastic! The service is friendly and welcoming. There is great variety on the menu; so there is opportunity to try new things: like nopal. And the margaritas are outstanding, What else does one need for brunch?"

De Santos is housed in a rustic but chic townhouse in the West Village where you can enjoy Traditional American, International and Mediterranean influenced cuisine from culinary genius Executive Chef Angel Vela. The dark wood and exposed brick dining areas are sexy and cozy. If you're lucky enough to get seated in the downstairs hidden jewel, the Janis, another ambiance will hit your senses as you dine with friends and family, breathing the same air as legends like Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. This secluded speakeasy rock n' roll room is also used for VIP's and larger private parties. The wide marble topped bar is a great place for a cocktail but comfy enough to stay and indulge in a full meal. French doors open to a large outdoor patio with exposed brick archway and awning where, when dining by candlelight you'll feel transported to the Mediterranean. Wednesday through Saturday late hours there's mixed music and surprises. Only at De Santos. Welcome. <br /><br />

"De Santos has a great brunch complete with bottomless mimosas! On Sunday, I sat with a friend at the bar to celebrate his birthday. We were well taken care of by the barman. And we made new friends as we ate. The brunch menu is somewhat limited; but solid. The banana pancakes were great! And the mimosas are pretty good, too!"

Opened in 1994, Nicola Marzovilla's warm and welcoming restaurant has been a favorite for more than 18 years for those in search of hearty, delicious Italian specialties. Its celebrated menu draws on the regional cuisine of the Marzovillas' homeland, Puglia. Nicola's mother, Dora, prepares hand-rolled fresh pastas daily. The restaurant is famed for its all-Italian wine list (expertly selected by Marzovilla), and the adjoining Enoteca offers lighter food and by-the-glass choices as well as a nightly happy hour from 3-8pm. I Trulli is a popular destination all-year round: diners can sit by the glow of the main room's rustic fireplace in winter, while in the warmer months are treated to the lush splendor of one of Manhattan's finest outdoor garden spaces.

"I had not been to I Trulli for some time. But after this recent dinner, I am excited to go back soon! The wine list is impressive; and can be explored pre-dinner in the cozy wine bar. The service is friendly but not overbearing. The covered back patio is a fantastic place to dine; even in October. The food was delicious. There was slight misstep on an octopus starter; but the pasta, lasagna, and calamari were fantastic!"
