More festive than a piñata stuffed with a mariachi band and twice as stylish, Calle Ocho’s lively crowd is amped up on Mojitos, Caipirinhas, Sangria and Spanish wine or beer and shows no sign of slowing down. Those not willing or able to holler over the salsa music retire to the two small lounge areas to commiserate. The bar area is a prelude to their Nuevo Latino cuisine in the dining room that will knock your taste buds for a loop. If you’re in need of a quick jump-start, Calle Ocho will get your motor running.

At BV's Grill, you can expect the same great food and service our guests are accustomed to at our other Bobby Van's locations. Conveniently located just east of Third Avenue at 56th Street, BV's Grill is a 3 minute walk from the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, E, and M trains . As you walk in to our newest location you'll notice a modern yet elegant space with large banquettes and a glassed in open kitchen. <br /> <br />The restaurant will be open seven days a week for lunch, brunch(seasonally) and dinner.

Everyone, from beautiful models and young professionals to families and business types on power lunches, flocks to Serafina Fabulous Grill to enjoy the ambiance and delicious cuisine found in this upbeat three room restaurant. Choose from a variety of homemade pastas and fresh grilled meats, fish and vegetables. Always buzzing with good music, animated conversation and hearty laughter, diners can enjoy authentic Italian cuisine on the terrace, in the main dining room with the open fire grill and cherrywood burning oven or at the lively bar.

Crave Fishbar is a vibrant, convivial restaurant in Midtown Manhattan serving an inspired seafood menu from chef Todd Mitgang. An eclectic mix of reclaimed materials and custom made chairs and tables lend a beachy, rustic feel to the space, which houses a 25-foot-long bar where guests can order from the full dinner menu along with cocktails and wine from a mounted bottle display. Journey up to the 2nd floor and watch an army of shuckers plating raw bar platters. Approachable, sophisticated dishes feature local seafood, crudos, and meat dishes that are thoughtfully prepared with both familiar and exotic ingredients. Crave Fishbar has taken its place as a neighborhood fixture, providing locals and newcomers alike with a elegant, inviting experience. <br />We are the only NYC restaurant partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium so that every single item on the menu is sustainable and all of our practices are to better our oceans.

Blue Smoke celebrates the evolving American South and honors its culinary traditions. Inspired by the many regions of the South, from the Carolina coast to the hills of central Texas, Executive Chef Jean-Paul Bourgeois’ menu is soulful with a selection of smoked meats, fresh produce, and thoughtfully sourced ingredients. Classic and specialty cocktails, an extensive American craft beer list, American wines and whiskey served by a welcoming team complete the experience.<br /><br />The flagship Blue Smoke, with the club Jazz Standard, is located on East 27th Street in New York City, and a second location opened in 2012 in NYC’s Battery Park City.
