Bar Rique offers a wide variety of wines from around the world in addition to professionally tailored cocktails and spirits. Our food is expertly prepared tapas and entrees in the traditional Spanish preparation.

"I enjoyed this place despite the small tables, the wait staff constantly rushing by me and a higher than expected tab. Don't (or do) get carried away with the nice variety of tapas and expect to see a bill that's not more than a couple of entrees. With that said though we had wonderful wine and was not pushed out by the nice wait staff. There's a, the dishes were pretty and tasty, there is a great garden out back and the bus boys keep your water glass full. I like that and I hope this place hangs around a bit longer than the last place there."

Arte Cafe located in a landmark brownstone, features a large outdoor garden with a water fountain. Just steps away from Central Park, Chef Camillo Bassani, formally from the Hasseler Hotel in Rome, presents upscale pan-Italian cuisine with homemade pastas, fresh meats, fish, pizza from a brick-oven and sumptuous desserts. Private rooms are available for all events and budgets.

"I have liked Arte Café for a long time-nice space, food and prices. We went for the Early bird special before 6pm. Sadly all but 4 pasta dishes were an additional charge. Same with appetizers. If you expect to leave paying for the early bird special price then you will be extremely limited on what you can order. The deal is for an appetizer, entrée and dessert. After dealing with the few choices for the meal you will then be told that there is only one dessert available-no choice at all which was an inedible flan with what seemed like Bosco on it. Avoid this. Unfortunately the waiters seem distracted even when the restaurant is hardly filled and you may have to move your own table to prevent from being bumped into a dozen times or more."

Buca di Beppo serves authentic Italian cuisine in an eclectic, vintage setting. Our dishes are served family-style, meant to be shared by everyone at the table. Two sizes are available: BUCA SMALL feeds two or more and BUCA LARGE feeds four or more. At Buca, guests delight in our lively atmosphere, enjoy the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and admire our decor, including family photos and candid shots of Italian-American icons, such as Sophia Loren and Joe DiMaggio. Our energetic atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff make Buca di Beppo the perfect place for great Italian food and fun.

"Family style Italian restaurant with large family sized portions. 2 of us ordered a pasta dish and a salad and a huge bowl of pasta came and a very large salad. Be hungry or be prepared to take a doggie bag if you are a small party. If you are with a group this is an ideal restaurant around the Times Square area and if you are catching a show. Service was quick and the food was surprisingly good. Tables are hard to come by so book in advance."

In South African slang, "Tolani" means "too good," and that is exactly what this UWS gem is – an unpretentious spot of which you simply can't get enough. Drawing from the very best flavors, techniques and ingredients from each corner of the world, Tolani Wine Restaurant's menu brings a culinary adventure to your backyard, marrying authenticity with ingenuity.

"This restaurant has a bit of it all. Sidewalk seating, vibrant bar, young patrons eating on the main floor, lower level a little quieter and an outdoor garden. The menu is tapas and many good choices good for vegetarians as well as meat options. Nice atmosphere and attentive service."
