"We had a fantastic experience at Betony. From the Maitre d'hotel to the waiters everybody is incredibly nice and professional.
We also appreciated the interior design of the restaurant, a mix of old brick walls and modern sleek black furniture at the bar.
We ordered the poached monkfish and cruciferous salad for appetizers, followed by the excellent duck breast and the grilled skate with cauliflower purée.
For dessert, we shared the butterscotch biscuit with ice-cream.

The Monarch Room serves an extensive menu of modern fresh-market American cuisine. The menu, crafted by Executive Chef Michael Citarella, devotes itself to dishes created with the best local and seasonal ingredients. Designed by Roman and Williams, The Monarch Room is located across the street from the famed Chelsea Market in a 1930's industrial-era warehouse. The design aesthetic of Monarch embraces its industrial roots while maintaining a polished uptown experience.

"We made a reservation on a busy Friday night for 8.30 and were seated after a short wait at the bar.
-Appetizers/to share: skate fingers, fried mushrooms, grilled octopus with remoulade.
We did not care about the skate but the other 2 appetizers were delicious.
-I ordered the red snapper with spinach, while my friend ordered the rabbit in "roulade". Both dishes were tasty and well-executed. I would recommend the rabbit, which had a lot of flavor.
-We shared the "Alaska" dessert, which consists of vanilla ice-cream topped with a warm meringue.
Beware it gets noisy in such a large dining room, but we did not mind. After all, it is expected when you dine in the Meatpacking District on a Friday or Saturday night.

The Elm serves classical, yet forward-thinking French fare. Our menu is broken down by category: Raw, Sea, Land and Shared. The menu is complimented by a wine program that offers a wide-ranging cross-section of eclectic wines. The seasonal cocktail program cross-utilizes freshly-picked herbs and fruits.<br /><br />Little Elm is our 8 seat counter which offers guests a front row view of our kitchen team in service. Executive Chef Mazen Mustafa will offer a seasonal eight course tasting menu created nightly. With advanced notice, we are able to accommodate most allergies and dietary requests.<br />Little Elm is open Thursday through Sunday and reservations are booked one month in advance directly through the restaurant. We offer reservations at 6pm, 6:30, 9pm and 9:30pm.

"Second time visiting this restaurant. The food and service are both fantastic and deserve at least 1 Michelin star.
The cauliflower dish is a must.
My only complain deals with the acoustic volume of the other guests. At first we were seated between 2 other parties of 2, by the wall. We could not hear ourselves so we move to the bar. Adrienne the bartender took care of us the whole evening.
To other dinners, I would suggest to be seated in the middle of the room or at the bar, not by the wall. Better yet, you can ask for the 'tasting menu' and seat across the kitchen."

The name FABBRICA - Italian for factory - is an homage to the extraordinary history of the neighborhood, once characterized by active manufacturing. Fabbrica welcomes those who want to explore, share, and celebrate contemporary Italian cuisine and extraordinary boutique wines.

"This was my 5th or 6th visit there.
It is a safe bet, the food is consistent, I had the poached black cod, it was tasty.

"I really like this restaurant.
You can seat at the sushi bar and watch the chefs prepare your meal.
Otoro is expensive, $16 a piece. Dungeness crab salad was excellent, and the uni risotto was delicious.
Beware of the the loud hip-hop music played and the loud volume of other guests. Not the most private or romantic restaurant for a date."
