Only at SUSHISAMBA will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches are served alongside more inventive dishes, including Tuna Tataki and Wagyu Gyoza. Complementing the menu are signature cocktails made with exotic spirits such as shochu and cachaça and an acclaimed sake list, as well as wine, beer and champagne. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique.

Keens Steakhouse, a classic New York chophouse, was already famous for its steaks and chops at the turn of the century. Founded in 1885, Keens has 90,000 clay pipes that line the ceilings – pipes once smoked by customers after dinner. Today Keens legendary mutton chops and dry aged prime steaks are still without equal in the city.

Gallo Nero is the new hidden gem of Hell's Kitchen. Located on 44th Street, between 9th & 10th Avenues, Gallo Nero has the great promise of becoming a new breed of tratoria with an exceptional wine selection. It's rustic feel is in tune with the wine and the friendly service only makes the place a very lovely spot, perfect for romantic dinners all the way to friendly reunions. The menu consists of a variety of items that are made to compliment every kind of taste, starting with cold cuts, Crostini, Bruschetta and cheese selections, all the way to Lamb Shank, Gnocchi and Panini. To top it all off the wines are picked from the special small vineyards in Italy, bringing a unique flavor to the area that will turn anyone into a wine lover.

"Great looking place and very friendly and efficient staff. Food is ok but needs help. The waitress recommended the cod, but it was very bland and parts had an ammonia taste (bad fish). Endive Salad was nothing special at all. Step up the food and this place would be fantastic. As is, it's an eh. Take it or leave it."

Welcome to Toloache (pronounced toh-lo-AH-tchay), chef-owner Julian Medina’s contemporary Mexican bistro located in the heart of the Theater District. Toloache is named after a flowering plant famed in Mexico for its use in love potions. We hope that when you dine with us you too will fall under the spell of chef Medina’s creative cooking, which incorporates seasonal and natural ingredients and more than a dozen types of chilies. Our festive, two-story space features a guacamole and ceviche bar, a wood-burning oven, and an exceptional tequila list, along with elegant decorative elements imported from Mexico. We looking forward to seeing you soon.

"This used to be a great place but it's clear success has killed it. They overbook the small restaurant so the place feels like a fire hazard with so many people standing around the tables waiting. Service varies from rushed to agonizingly slow. Food has become mediocre. Been many times. The latest could be our last."

A piece of Ireland in the heart of midtown Manhattan. Tir na nOg offers the warmth of an Irish pub with a new American menu. The bar boasts 22 draft beers from Ireland, Belgium, England and American craft breweries. A small but concise wine list has something for all palates and our extensive Scotch and Irish Whisky list provides a perfect ending to your meal. Service is friendly, efficient and unobtrusive with a few Irish employees always willing to tell a story. <br />Please note that open table reservations are for dining only. While we have bar tables tables available for drinks and bar food we do not accept open table reservations for just drinks.
