Find the refined and easy elegance of Venice in the middle of East Midtown in Manhattan.<br><br>Osteria Laguna named for the beautiful waterways of the famed Italian city offers a spacious and stylish contrast to the busy workday bustle of 42nd Street.

Floor to ceiling front doors, antique country tables and a classic 30 foot mahogany bar lend a sense of relaxed refinement to this airy and spacious getaway.<br><br>Osteria Laguna’s menu offers contemporary sensibility and flair to the classic tastes of Northern Italy with an emphasis on fresh wholesome foods. From classic to cutting edge, there’s something for every appetite. Perfectly balanced pasta dishes, mouthwatering risotti, or the amazing array of piping hot dishes coming out of the charming brick oven at the center of the restaurant.

"Met a colleague for lunch. We were seated in a corner table in the back where we were told it was not as noisy as in the front. I ordered the grilled salmon which was delicious and huge. It was seasoned lightly and served medium rare (therefore moist) as I requested. The sauteed spinach was a bit too salty and dense for my taste. The wait staff was attentive and accommodating. We arrived at noon and by the time we left the restaurant was full. I haven't been there in a while and was hoping it was as good as I recalled. Evidently Osteria Laguna has not lost its appeal."

"Summer time promotion for lobster works for me and my friends. Shared their special 5 pound lobster special with a friend. We both enjoyed the "bargain" and the great tasting lobster. They couldn't steam the lobster but even broiled it was still moist. Their Ceaser salad was nothing to rave about. The lettuce didn't appear especially fresh. And the dressing was more like I'd expect from a bottle. However, the side of string beans, steamed with garlic, was done to perfection, crisp and buttery. Because we had to wait beyond our appointed time we received desserts on the house. The cheese cake and chocolate cake were delicious...and huge."

"I came for the outdoor seating on a beautiful Spring day. The construction on the other side of the street brought me inside. But I wasn't disappointed with my dining experience. The special of soft shell crab was exceptional, firm and tasty. The fig salad was a a delightful mixture of taste and textures. The piano player was good, his music appropriate and not intrusive. All in all glad I tried the Bistro and I will be going back."

Cafe Joul, a French-American bistro, has been a perpetually popular staple in the Sutton Place neighborhood since the year 2000. A convivial, neighborhood atmosphere combined with the high-quality cuisine of chef-owner Bertrand Vernejoul have created a large devoted following. <br />

"I brought two guests from out of town knowing that whatever they were in the mood for and however hungry they were Cafe Joul would satisfy. And it did. Two of us had the calves liver, one preferred medium, the other medium rare. The dishes came out just as we wanted. The liver's texture was even and firm, not mushy as it sometimes is served. The mushroom and onions on the side were sauteed to perfection with a sauce that was light and well seasoned...or was that simply the remains of what the vegetables were sauteed in? Doesn't matter. It was good. My other guest enjoyed the lemon sole. Always delighted with Cafe Joul...the food, the service and rustic atmosphere."
