A cool Mediterranean retreat from the city's chaos, with fabric-swathed ceilings and pristine white furnishings. Even on a hectic night, service is calm and competent, and the professional couples at most of the tables seem to be speaking in peaceful whispers. The kitchen offers scintillating versions of hearty, refreshing Greek favorites. Souvlaki is charcoal-grilled and up scaled with filet mignon to produce an impressively tender, succulent result. Wine-marinated octopus legs are also charcoal-grilled, resulting in astounding flavor and not a hint of rubberness. Classics like garlicky skordalia, fava beans, sauteed chicken livers over lentils, and spanakopita are all best-of-breed versions, the latter prepared as a platter of bite-sized pies. A sizeable portion of moussaka, consisting of layers of juicy ground lamb and eggplant, tied together by a superlative béchamel. For dessert, the array of delicate pastries and the deeply creamy rice pudding are excellent without exception.

"We sat in the enclosed courtyard area in the back. There's a skylight, and when it gets dark, lights turn on. They also have abundant, beautiful, fresh flower arrangements set in wall recesses. We definitely felt as if we were in Greece. The food was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The wine was good. The wait staff was attentive. Highly recommend this place."

A Diamond in the Diamond district, a home away from home in Times Square NY, a New Show in the Theater District... A delicious Cuisine with the experience of a staff working together for more than 10 years, to add care and gusto to hospitality. <br /><br />

"This place was an unexpected find. We've walked pass this place for a long time. So glad that we stepped into an old, but wonderful restaurant. Food was delicious. Attentive service. And they were happy to accommodate our birthday dessert request (as well as for the other 2 tables which had birthdays too). Highly recommend."

"We enjoyed our filet mignon very much. The wine was good. The fantastic view of the Empire State Building at night was also wonderful. The waiters could've paid more attention to we guests who were sitted outside, but we got everything that we ordered. Delicious. Recommend highly."

"My friends all enjoyed their seafood dishes. I ordered the NY strip steak at medium, but it was well done; and I wished that the chef had trimmed more fat off. We shared meatball appertizers which were good. The waitress, host, bus people were all attentive. The drinks were fine; and the bottle of champagne was perfectly chilled and tasted great. Overall our dinner was good, not great. Also, it was just a tad bit noisy even though we had the entire back area. It's a convenient, local place for some Italian seafood."

We bring to New York Tusc-Mex cuisine, a combination of Tuscan and Mexican home cooking. These two cuisines complement each other in an exciting new blend. Our menu offers a rich variety of choices, from standards such as pasta and quesadillas to the chefs’ fusion creations that introduce new herbs and condiments to each tradition. <br /><br />At I coppi di Matilda’s, expect to find the friendly atmosphere of a Tuscan “trattoria” or a Mexican “restaurante familiar”, in a playful but stylish setting that is fully dedicated to the chefs’ daughter and the blending of two cultures.<br /><br />A string of words in Italian, Spanish and Matilda’s parlance, envelops the dining space to celebrate what binds the creators of Matilda: the love for food, diversity and family.

"The food was delicious. We both ordered the ribs which were served with mash potatoes. The meat just "melted off" the bone. The orange hibiscus sorbet was also great. Our waitress was kind and attentive. We recommend this place highly. It is worth the "trek" to the far-east village."

Le Colonial is a truly delightful culinary experience. Like stepping into French Colonial Southeast Asia, this two-story restaurant, designed by Greg Jordan, consists of a main dining room with louvered wall panels, colorful tile floors, and vintage photos of Vietnam. Upstairs is an elegant, but lively, lounge serving a full dinner or just appetizers and cocktails. The lounge serves as an ideal setting for private parties and business dinners. Chef Ronald Wingwee Hsu serves an authentic Vietnamese menu with an emphasis on fresh seafood, meats, and vegetables.

Inside Park at St. Bart's, the new restaurant located in the transformed Great Hall at famed landmark, St. Bartholomew's Church at Park Avenue and 50th Street, serves a fabulous selection of contemporary American cuisine. The design, food and service pay tribute to the idea of a "sense of place and time", while welcoming guests to comfortable 140-seat venue in which to "escape", break bread and share a casual dining experience. Just a few steps up from the sidewalk along stately Park Avenue, diners are seemingly miles from the hustle and bustle in one of the world's greatest cities.

"Definitely a vibrant restaurant scene in Times Square. We were probably the only native New Yorker among tourists in the place for dinner. We both ordered the prix-fixe dinner which was excellent. Caesar salad & mushroom risotto were delicious. They ran out of the peach tart, but offered any dessert replacement. The NY cheese cake was fine, but not amazing. The maitre'd, waiter and wait staff were all great. I loved the decor...sort of tromphe l'oeil including 2 ancient-style chandliers. Restaurant was full on a Monday, with only an occasional wait line. Definitely will come again. Highly recommend."
