Jeanne & Gaston is a French Bistro with a modern twist that is based on a mix of Godard"s family recipes and traditional French recipes.<br /> <br />Diners can enjoy the wonderful cuisine in the restaurant's dining hall that has a modern ambiance with a touch of classic French influence, or at the garden patio during the summer months, all the while retaining its casual and classy atmosphere.

Morimoto is the New York City interpretation of Executive Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s namesake Philadelphia restaurant that is co-owned with restaurateur Stephen Starr. Designed by world renowned architect Tadao Ando, the restaurant’s entrance features the world’s largest Japanese Noren curtain set against a massive façade of austere steel. Inside is an extraordinary open kitchen surrounded by a 24-seat sushi bar where diners can watch Morimoto and his chefs at work. On every level of the restaurant guests enjoy the elaborate menu where East meets West. Glass partitions create a private atmosphere between tables and a wall made of 17,000 spring water bottles add a touch of New York drama to this tranquil atmosphere. Guests have the option to dine on the top floor or congregate in the lower lounge for cocktails and snacks.

"Nice space, but the food was lackluster and overpriced for what you get. With so many fantastic restaurants in NYC...try another."

Reigning from the Il Mulino New York Family, Trattoria Il Mulino is now open in the heart of Manhattan’s Gramercy District. Trattoria Il Mulino delivers a fresh dynamic while preserving the modern elegance of the Il Mulino New York name. Executive Chef Michele Mazza has created a menu that boasts Il Mulino New York’s traditional Italian cuisine along with original dishes that reflect the sophistication of downtown.

"I had heard "great food" from a colleague. Unfortunately, the food was nothing notable. Not bad at all, but nothing special. The restaurant was full and lively. I was in a party of four, and we all felt it was an unremarkable experience. Most detracting was the service. Our server, once entrees were delivered, NEVER came back to our table - not to check on drinks, the dessert we ordered (through someone else) or anything. We spent almost 15 minutes trying to flag down anyone just to get our check - our server never once even made eye-contact. For almost $400 (with tip and without alcohol!), this was a terrible dining experience. If not for the great company of my friends, it would have been a full disaster."
