Opened in 1947, this quaint country restaurant offers contemporary French fare, beautifully presented with excellent service in an elegant & uniquely classic setting.

Menu items range from a variety of domestic & imported fish selections to seasonal game offerings during the fall & winter.

For 100 years, the Algonquin has been greeting and lodging the country's most prominent writers and literary personalities, as well as the leading figures of the American stage. The hotel is best known, perhaps, for the members of the Round Table, a group of luminaries who had in common both the ability to fire blazing witticisms and to withstand being on the receiving end of them. The tone they set during their daily meetings set the literary style of the 1920s. After World War I, Vanity Fair writers and Algonquin regulars Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley and Robert E. Sherwood began lunching at the Algonquin. Though society columns referred to them as the Algonquin Round Table, they called themselves the Vicious Circle. "By force of character," observed drama critic Brooks Atkinson, "they changed the nature of American comedy and established the tastes of a new period in the arts and theatre."

"I am a native New Yorker, who unfortunately left NY for professional reasons.
I made this reservation weeks ago, yet even as a hotel guest, in a relatively empty restaurant, my well dressed party of four was led to a table in the back of the restaurant next to the kitchen door.
When I protested, we were moved to another table but the host was decidedly condescending in the process.
lackluster service and a de minimus wine list only added to my disappointment.
This was my son's 26th birthday celebration.
As a writer and a journalist he was really looking forward to dining at the round table.
However, while I love the Algonquin and stay whenever I can, I don't think any of us will dine at the round table in the foreseeable future.

Cafe Un Deux Trois has been located in the heart of Times Square since 1977. We opened when the neighborhood was still very rough , and quickly became THE brasserie to stop for dinner and drinks before heading off to Studio 54 and Xenon to dance the night away. <br />We were and still are frequented by American and European theater and film actors, as well as politicians, directors, local New Yorkers and tourists from around the world. You will find many a Broadway cast and crew member hanging out after the show on any given night.<br /><br />We recently had a facelift featuring enormous windows and a new color scheme.<br />The food while still classic bistro fare has expanded to include a variety of sandwiches, hamburgers and an extensive breakfast.<br />We have also added a selection of savory and sweet crepes to our dining choices.

"At Bobby Vans 54th Street, you can expect the same great service and the same great food as our other restaurants. Tucked away in another historic restaurant location, (at one time this was the hang out spot for such stars as Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack) there is plenty of history and untold stories behind these walls, if only they could talk. Conveniently located just east of Park Avenue and 4 blocks north of The Waldorf-Astoria, this is where you want to be. As you walk into the restaurant you’re greeted by our hosts and a large credenza filled with beautiful bottles of wine. Glancing to your left you overlook the spacious yet always occupied bar, where the bartenders know your name and have your drink waiting for you before you can even say hello. Separating the bar from the dining room is a glass window so you can see all the action of other diners enjoying their meals. The dining room has the good old fashioned steakhouse style with handcrafted wood walls, and F

"I always try to stop at Bice when I am midtown, especially when shopping. It is an unexpected oasis from the craziness of 5th avenue. Beautifully prepared food and a wine list to accompany it; I have never had a disappointing lunch or dinner there."
