Featuring dynamic cuisine in a sensual atmosphere, the most exciting Italian restaurant on the East Side is bar.vetro. Meaning "glass" in Italian, vetro refers to the muted green, transparent glass sheet that dominates the bar area, as if floating. The intimate dining room, decorated in cool grays and suffused with warm lavender light, is the perfect compliment to the innovative menu, which features small plates known as "assagi" throughout Italy, ideal for sharing with the table or sampling as a tasting dinner. In addition to their small plates bar.vetro also offers a wide variety of salads, pasta, chicken, fish and veal dishes.<br><br>Equally wonderful as an after-work drinks destination or as an all-night stop for dinner and a chance to experience its excellent, moderately priced wine selection, bar.vetro also features an outdoor seating area in a sunken garden just outside its front doors. Enjoy one of the house cocktails or one of 20 wines by the glass...

"Great value here. Unpretentious. but the super fresh ingredients and generous portions would be at home in a fancier setting.
The eggplant rollatini appetizer is the best ever!

For nearly 35 years, Il Mulino New York has prepared authentic Abruzzese cuisine with unparalleled service.<br /><br />There’s no place like Il Mulino New York. The luxury Italian restaurant’s flagship Greenwich Village outpost initiated New York’s fine Italian dining trend and is still prized in the city’s elite dining scene. Zagat has rated Il Mulino New York as Manhattan’s No. 1 Italian restaurant for decades and has said the restaurant provides "one-of-a-kind" cuisine filled with delicious flavors, creating an "outstanding Italian classic" restaurant where "every dish is a masterpiece." <br /><br />Executive Chef Michele Mazza, who hails from Naples, Italy, has proudly carried this tradition since 2003. Fresh ingredients, artistic preparation and impeccable service distinguish Il Mulino New York as one of the world’s premiere restaurants. In addition to fine dining, Il Mulino New York provides excellent off-site catering and products.

"Really enjoyed the restaurant week lunch menu. The mozzarella in the caprese salad was soft and fresh as can be. So it's not just the cooking, but the ingredients they care about. They give you all kinds of little delicious tidbits before you even get started."

With Shun Lee Cafe conveniently located across from Lincoln Center, Dim Sum is just the ticket. The Cafe, a black and white checkerboard dining room, decorated with images from the Chinese calendar.<br>Terrific Dim Sum on rolling carts in constant motion and a variety of dishes in smaller portions completes the menu at Shun Lee Cafe. The Cafe is a great pre-theater stop for a “quick” dinner.

Brasserie 8 ½ achieves a delicate fusion of creativity and comfort, featuring a world-class art collection, adventurous haute French cuisine and a plush atmosphere. A luscious raw bar, Latin and Asian influenced dishes, succulent meats, and a dessert selection that is a world apart, artfully complement this glamorous setting.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>

"Although it's below street level, Brasserie 8 1/2 is a beautiful, modern, sophisticated space. The tables have ample room around them and the booths are like flying First Class. The food was really excellent and the menu was not one of those insulting ones that some places cook up for the event. This was a sample of how good the kitchen can be: outstanding chestnut soup and a superb warm chevre wrapped in golden beet strips. Would love to go back."

Situated on the North and West balconies of New York's Grand Central Terminal, this restaurant was designed to reflect Michaels sense of taste and style. Michael Jordan's The Steak House N.Y.C. ranks among the finest steakhouses in Manhattan, offering a world class menu and an extensive, eclectic selection of wines and spirits. There are two private dining rooms and two semi private dining rooms available, with pre-fixe menus.

"I don't know how the acoustics work, but the hubbub of the Grand Central Terminal commuters and tourists turns into white noise and conversation between diners is audible.
The $25 lunch is a fine treat, and the salmon is as beautifully prepared as the steak. Very reliable place, and I always look forward to it.
