The stunning reincarnation of New York's original 1959 Brasserie showcases the award-winning, ultramodern design of Diller + Scofidio. Executive Chef Luc Dimnet's menu demonstrates a bold use of flavor giving an unexpected taste to classic French brasserie fare. Savor traditional dishes including Onion Soup Gratinèe and Maine Bouchot Mussels Marinière or modern plates like Gougonettes of Cod and Long Island Duck Breast Confit.<br><br>Visit our other great restaurants by clicking on the link below.<br><br><br /><a href="http://www.patinagroup.com" target=_new> The Patina Restaurant Group</a>

"First time for South African cuisine. It was unusual in some ways, but always delicious and very well presented. The restaurant is stylish and comfortable. Young staff wasenthusiastically committed to our understanding of the dishes and to our satisfaction.
I would go back in minute---especially for their chicken livers peri-peri (Yes---liver!)"

Casimir & Co will transport diners from the streets of Manhattan to a Parisian bistro clad with rustic wood finishing on the walls, an open kitchen with tempting charcuterie hanging in the window, and daily menus listed on chalk boards. The full service bar is located on the street level with a few high-top tables, and the L-shaped dining room is on the second level surrounded by large windows overlooking Lexington Avenue. Dishes will be rooted in simple and traditionally satisfying bistro fare. The seasonal and affordable menu will rotate daily for lunch, dinner and brunch offering diners a new experience every day.Signature items will remain on the menu, such as the house’s signature dish L'Entrecôte Casimir & Co, a grass fed NY Strip served on a wooden board with a "secret" sauce and homemade frites for a bargain $22.<br />In addition to an outstanding menu, the restaurant also offers a wine and mixology bar on the main floor and outdoor seating for beautiful summers on the patio.

"There is a reason this restaurant has been successful for so long....and the $35 pre-theatre menu is a gift."

Route 66 Smokehouse opened in the Fall of 2013 on the historic Stone Street in NYC’s Financial District. It is the only establishment in the neighborhood offering authentic localized American cuisine. Chef Billy Kooper’s menu features unique twists on beloved barbecue and Americana recipes with a strong emphasis on hand-selected ingredients from artisanal vendors. The theme continues on the beverage side, with an All-American Whiskey list comprised of an array of highly allocated Bourbons, Ryes and Whiskeys, served by the ounce or two ounce. On tap is a strictly 100% craft beer menu, and the cocktail list features libations inspired by landmarks along the restaurant’s namesake, such as: Amboy Crater, Whale of Catoosa, and Tucumcari, N.M. The restaurant’s décor reflects the hometown comfort and rugged charm of the famous road that inspired its name.

You feel a great energy when you walk into the Glass House Tavern. The decor is soothing and warm and truly makes the customer feel welcome. The prompt, friendly service is delightful and the food is incredible. <br /><br />Executive Chef Craig Cupani has created a contemporary American menu that sets this restaurant apart from the other choices in the neighborhood. Fresh, seasonal ingredients are the emphasis here and the results are fantastic.

Chef Michael Psilakis and partner Donatella Arpaia have moved their rustic Greek gem, Kefi, to a larger space at 505 Columbus Avenue. The new, 200-seat interior evokes the feeling of a palatial Greek hideaway broken up into several smaller dining rooms to keep Kefi’s intimate appeal.<br /><br />The menu of favorites straight from Psilakis’ childhood will remain the same with some new additions. Signature dishes like Baccala, crispy-fried cod with garlic potatoes and tomato, Grilled Octopus with bean salad, and Hilopita, baked pasta with rabbit ragout and béchamel are still on offer. Additions include Grilled Sardines with chopped “Greek Salad” and garlic sauce, Macaronia Spestofai, tubular pasta with Greek sausage, peppers, onions, tomato and feta and an entirely new section of Greek Sandwiches featuring house-made sausages and pork and lamb gyro.
