"On my repeat visit at Mariposa while shopping at the Westchester Mall, I again was amazed how convinient and appealing this restaurant is. Located at Nieman Marcus but with an easy access from the Mall, Mariposa offers a very nice ambience, relaxing atmosphere, versatile menu and a friendly and quick service. The "signature" complimentary pop overs with strawberry butter and a hot broth were offered right away. Then, my "combo" lunch included a cup of excellent crab bisque and a chicken sandwich and, it was served within 10 minutes or so! Completely satisfying and delicious meal and, a definite "come back" for me!"

"It was my first time in Zodiac after its renovation. Ambience is very nice, tables are set apart at a comfortable distance and, butterflies in motions on the walls are really beautiful. Lunch menu has quite a lot to offer. Neiman Marcus's signature pop overs with strawberry butter and hot broth were, as always, delicious and very welcoming. My chicken sandwich "Tuscan" style was very tasty and healthy (included little green and fruit salad) and, portion was quite generous. It is a really nice place to have lunch during shopping at NM, however I would not hesitate to make a small "deviation" from the other parts of this big shopping mall to dine at the Zodiac."

"We came for a Greek dinner and we got it. Cousine consists of typical Greek dishes and there is a variety of them to choose from. However this time, because of the Holidays (it was a day before New Year's), the menu was quite limited, especially in choosing fish dishes. We settled for a Greek salad and grilled octopus which is one of the best that I have had in many years! Greek wine (again limited choice because of the Holidays) compllimented our dinner. We are planning on coming back when the restaurant gets "restocked"."

"Our multiple return and, again, a nice dinner as anticipated. However , this time even though it was late (9pm), place was very busy and service was slow. Flat breads as always were very good but the real "star" of the evening were grilled sea scallops served with risotto. Dishes offered were big in size and nicely presented. Overall, we had a good time except for a very loud music coming from the bar (live) which did not allow us to have a decent conversation."

BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"In the midst of my holiday shopping at the Mall, I decided to stop for lunch in this Tuscan Restaurant. I did not expect much except for just having a meal but, to my surprise, it really was a nice dinning. Large menu offered a variety of different options from a hamburger to more sophisticated dishes including sea food and meat and, in spite of "crowds", service was quite quick, efficient and friendly. I had a "simple" hamburger which was very nice, differently spiced and juicy meat with fries that also had a different from ordinary taste. This place is already on my return list."

"Very nice place to get lunch during shopping at the Mall, but not quick... Service was "patchy" due to Holiday crow, however food was quite nice. We ordered an onion soup and crab bisque and, both were very tasty. Warm Asian salad offered a big portion, so we shared but, also... a lot of salt (which we did not like). Overall, nice, warm atmosphere and a spirit of Holidays made it very enjoyable."

"My multiple return for a quick "bite" while shopping at the Mall. My Tuscan chicken melt was tasty and portion was quite generous. Service was quite "speedy" considering that place was very busy. Overall, this was another nice experience and, a definite "come back" for me."

PISTACHE is a Parisian-style French bistro with a Mediterranean twist. It serves simple, delicious meals made with fresh, local and imported products. It seats 180 people and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.<br />Prices are moderate and the recipes nutritionally healthy. Service is casual and efficient. The atmosphere is upbeat with a definite European flair. The interior is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau, which defined most brasseries and bistros opened in 1920"s Paris. It boasts cozy seating with numerous red leather banquettes, a full bar and giant antique mirrors. The restaurant has a feel of "Always been there". It is classic, retro-modern and sophisticated but unpretentious.<br />The outdoor patio overlooks Centennial Park, the Fountains and the Intracoastal Waterway. It is shaded with large umbrellas and seats 30 people in a Riviera-like setting.

"Very nice outside seating. There was a Christmas show on the way just across the street, so I was able not only to dine but also to enjoy the music and a wonderful light show over Christmas decorations! Tuna Crudo offered a reasonable portion for me and, it was delicious. This is one of my favorite places for any time of the day or evening and, I return there with pleasure."

"This is a great place to have a quit (or not) lunch while shopping at Neiman Marcus or in the Mall! This time I had a sampler that included a cup of soup (lobster bisque) and half a chicken sandwich. Portion was just the right size for me and tasty. Place was very crowded though and service was "patchy". Also, one should make a reservation ahead of time during a Holiday Season since "come in" might not get accommodated."
