"Loved the unique cocktails at Bo's. It was really quiet on a summer weekend night but the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We will definitely return!"

Dos Caminos brings the vibrant spirit of Mexico City to New York City. Serving authentic and upscale Mexican cuisine, including fresh guac, killer margaritas, and South of the Border favorites. The tequila and margarita menu is one of the most robust of its kind. “Dos” has single-handedly redefined Mexican for Americans. <br /><br />Regular celebrity and power player pop-ins fuel a raucously clubby vibe, the sexy interior spaces impress guests for all occasions – private parties, client dinners, date nights and more.

"It seemed to me like they were spending more focus on the music than anything else. The hostess could not handle the crowd at the door and didn't give much priority to people with reservations. It seemed like Happy Hour drew a big crowd but the restaurant wasn't even that crowded before we sat down. The food was fine. I wish there was a little more attention to making the dishes creative or unique. The rice and beans for the table was mostly beans and not very warm."

First Crush promotes a “casual upscale” atmosphere for individuals, private events and large parties in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square district, offering hand-crafted quality food using the freshest ingredients complemented with a massive all-California wine list - served affordably with professional service in an energetic, lively environment.<br /> <br />The restaurant has been awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2001-2014.

"For a wine bar our waiter had no knowledge of wine. "They're all ..." was part of the description of the difference between the Sauv Blancs on the menu. No mention when the bottle was brought out that it was the only one until we were ready for the second bottle. Food was really boring. The best thing on the menu was the cheese plate, which was served with a good size portion and nice honey, nuts and grapes. I doubt this restaurant will stay open much longer since it was mostly empty tables and now I know why. It was super expensive and not good. Sorry but I will not return."

Magical is a word thrown around a lot when discussing Tavern On The Green and one can’t help but feel magic in the air. Jim and David, architect Richard Lewis and landscape architect Robin Key, preserved the Victorian/ Gothic elegance of the semi-circular building; it is authentic, natural, elegant and sexy. It has been re-built to spectacular precision and the décor is of a grand farmhouse one might find on the property of an Italian Villa or a historic Hudson River Valley mansion.

"My friends and I enjoyed a leisurely brunch at Tavern on the Green this past weekend. Of course we know we're paying for the ambiance and the experience of Tavern on the Green, but the brunch menu was overpriced and quite limited. A la carte scrambled eggs were over $20 and the portion was skimpy. The strata was similar--limited prep for the kitchen which should mean easy to serve but was the only option other than the scramble. The prix fixe at $55 was probably the best deal but not remarkably interesting. While the restaurant is massive, they need to figure out a more interesting brunch. Service was spectacular, and the music was lovely. The restaurant wasn't busy so we weren't hurried out the door."

Palma's ingredients arrive fresh each day from her organic garden and local markets. The menu highlights homemade pastas, fresh seafood and seasonal produce. Palma is nested on quaint Cornelia Street in the heart of Greenwich Village, with a hidden garden filled with fresh flowers in all seasons and a 200-year-old Carriage House for private dining in an elegant yet warm setting.

"I love small splate dining and Toro had some exceptional dishes. My favorites were the two tuna tapas: the ceviche and the tartar. The octopus was also awesome, as well as the cauliflower. The only thing I didn't like was the corn and usually that is my favorite. It had way too much aioli on it which was light on taste. I prefer no aioli and more cotija! The white and red sangrias were also exceptional."

"I was very excited to bring my mom to Mother's Day dinner at Murray's because she always hears me raving about the cheese and the friendly service. She was not disappointed. She loved everything, especially all of the unique accompaniments to the cheese board like butterscotch and tart cherries. We are always impressed with Rachel's cheese board--go on Sunday nights to see the best cheesemonger!"
