Almanac is the flagship restaurant of James Beard Award Winning Chef Galen Zamarra and serves a three course tasting menu for $75, a five course for $95, and an eight course for $145. Almanac welcomes substitutions, and all dishes may be ordered individually as an appetizer for $20 or as an entrée for $40.<br /><br />The name Almanac is derived from a seasonal journal that Chef Zamarra began to create nearly fifteen years ago when he noticed that certain ingredients were only available for brief moments each year. Thus, he would transcribe his ideas for dishes in a daily journal based upon his conversations with farmers, local fishermen, producers, and wild foragers and depending upon what was then in season. His journal was divided by micro season and became a personal almanac that has grown over the years. Accordingly, the name of our restaurant is called Almanac.

". . . until now. We finally got around to trying Almanac, which replaced Mas. It seems that not much has changed. It's an extremely comfortable place, with excellent food, and the menu is such that you can have a 3-, 5- or 7- course tasting menu, or order anything on the menu a la carte. The service is excellent, too."

Good fresh food served graciously. That's what we do.<br />Offering a contemporary American menu of casual dishes crafted to work with the seasons, in a warm, stylish setting.<br />They say our name is an understatement. But it's still GOOD.<br /><br />We offer a moderately priced menu in a casual, stylish setting. In the heart of New York's West Village neighborhood, our comfortable dining room & friendly staff provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere. <br /><br />Our Dinner and Lunch menus offer a well-rounded selection of dishes that are familiar but with a modern twist. <br />Our innovative American Brunch keeps us busy every weekend year-round & has become a weekly staple for many.<br />And our cocktails utilize the same fresh, seasonal ingredients found throughout all our menus.<br /><br />We look forward to having you join us.

Monument Lane is a West Village bistro serving seasonal American fare featuring ingredients from regional farmers and growers who promote sustainable practices. The menu changes weekly, reflecting the restaurant's commitment to showcasing the local harvest.<br /><br><br />Monument Lane takes its inspiration from the area's historically pastoral setting; when the land was once rich with salt marshes and grasslands, pure estuaries teamed with mussels and oysters, and acres of apple and cherry orchards bloomed nearby. In the 1700's and 1800's, New Yorkers came to Greenwich Village as a retreat to the countryside; traveling a road named Monument Lane, now called Greenwich Avenue, where the restaurant presently sits.

"This spot has been home to two bad-to-mediocre restaurants since Bruxelles closed several years ago after a long run as a neighborhood favorite (but one that had gotten a bit tired). Rossopomodoro breaks that trend. Our fist meal there was excellent, and the linguini with sea urchin was fantastic. The main dining area is a bit noisy, but but not deafening. Service was appropriately attentive and friendly. It's a bit pricier than the many Italian alternatives in the West Village, but is certainly not overpriced for food this good. Our only concern is that it becomes so popular that we'll not be able to get a reservation on relatively short notice. This is definitely a change for the better in a neighborhood that's undergoing a lot of the other kind."

Elegant New-American cuisine using locally grown and sustainably raised foods cooked using modern French styles and honoring classic technique. The ever-changing menu is printed daily, tied with twine, and contains the finest ingredients sourced from small farmers and local fishermen.

Located on the subterranean level of Dream Downtown, a crimson staircase leads to Cherry's warmly lit, romantic space replete with plush velvet seating evoking the feel of mid-century Paris. <br /><br />Cherry, created by co-owner of BONDST, Jonathan Morr, offers an innovative menu of French-inspired, Japanese fare complimented by a collection of more than 80 sake varietals and a list of hand-crafted cocktails. <br />

Chef and owner Frank Crispo opened Crispo Restaurant in the heart of Chelsea and the West Village in the summer of 2002. <br /><br />Our 150 seats create a lively, warm and friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy our signature Northern Italian cuisine. <br /><br />We were nominated in 2002 for "Best New Restaurant" by Time Out magazine, and received an award for "Best Spaghetti Carbonara" by New York Magazine in 2004. <br /><br />Food is not our only passion. Our extensive wine list covers the major regions of Italy and several other countries beyond. For enthusiasts, we have a full bar stocked with grappa, amaros, aperitifs and digestifs.<br /><br />Come join us for dinner in our main dining room, or in our outdoor garden space. It remains open year long. With this newest addition to Crispo Restaurant you will truly feel like you are not in New York.

An old storefront in Kingston's Historic Uptown District, a simple sliver of a space, has received a sumptuous update by its new tenant: Boitson's Restaurant. The menu is American, refined, yet comfortable from Trout Meuniere to Fried Chicken. The dining area is a carefully considered homage to both the upscale bistro and the "old man" bar. In good weather, the back deck, with views of the Catskills, is another of Boitson's many secrets awaiting to be discovered.
