"I have eaten here on multiple occasions. Never a disappointment. Always tasty fresh seafood. Great deviled eggs. The wine list is limited, but this is a small venue, so the tradeoff for fresh seafood is worthy compromise. No bread served and the food takes a while, so get there before your hunger kicks in."

Lafayette is an everyday French restaurant conducting the spirit of French dining anew in downtown Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood. Open morning, noon and night, this grand café and bakery is dedicated to Chef Andrew Carmellini's market-driven bistro cooking in a timeless hallmark setting. Our light-flushed dining room features soaring arched windows overlooking the NoHo streetscapes and a lively rotisserie bar. Our corner boulangerie-patisserie is open all hours offering artisanal breads, croissants, Stumptown coffee drinks, a light breakfast or lunch and a host of confections. In warm weather months, our sidewalk cafe opens daily for open air lunch, brunch and dinner service.

"My first meal at Lafayette was great. We were seated downstairs (away from the maddening crowds), so we could actually hear each other talk, and the food was really very good. Second visit, not so much. Our table was less than desirable, the charred octopus was like eating rubber (amateur for such a noted restaurant)and the service was absent for the most part. The roquefort beef special was done very well and the steak frites was done correctly. But overall, for the price, the service was lacking and the food was underwhelming. I haven't struck this place form my list, but it's certainly not one that I would highly recommend. Maybe a subsequent visit will renew my faith in Lafayette."

Navy is a 51-seat cozy neighborhood joint on a tree-lined street in Soho. Created by Matt Abramcyk and Akiva Elstein, partners in Smith & Mills. Chef Camille Becerra focuses on seafood and vegetables, working closely with the Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op to source her produce. A raw bar offers fresh oysters, clams and sea urchin for uni toast along with blinis and house-cured fish and caviar; seedy crackers and primo sardines. Larger plates include crispy gnocchi with roasted pumpkin, tonnato and poached egg as well as an ocean trout encroute for two. Items such as the Crispy sweet potatoes accompanied by walnuts, pomegranate, green olives and herbs, are a reflection of Navy's zeal for coaxing the maximum flavor out of vegetables with the help of herbs and spices. <br />The space is designed with a maritime WWII aesthetic in mind. Antique Japanese indigos become curtains, while French linen and vintage military canvas cover the wall.

"When we arrived I was a little apprehensive about the tightness of the seating arrangements. However, it turned out to be quite comfortable (ignoring the lack of privacy). The food exceeded my expectations. Everything we ordered was prepared perfectly, presented nicely and the taste was just right. Try the Mussel Toast (a true winner in my book). Also the soft shell crab (presumably seasonal) was presentwsed on a pancake and garnished with a black bean mash and sliced scallions. The best soft shell crab I have had this season. The prgoressive music over the din of lively conversation was also a nice touch. FIVE STARS!!!"

General Assembly Restaurant & Bar is a casually sophisticated market-driven grill located at 360 Park Avenue South, one block east of Madison Square Park by partners Craig Koketsu (Park Avenue, Quality Meats) and Michael Stillman. The 170-seat restaurant features a European-inspired menu utilizing local and seasonal ingredients.

"Where do I start? Over-salted...Overrated...Extremely loud...Most dishes are deep fried and unimpressive...Wait staff doesn't know much about the food...When I asked if an entree was served with anything (veg, garni, etc.) the waiter answered "He doesn't over-plate the food". Really?!?!? I guess we are supposed to know who "he" is. And what does that mean? The entree was merely a piece of protein. That's it, just a piece of fish. The crowd is awful and extremely noisy. Seems like a pick up scene at the bar, which is very tacky for a restaurant of this caliber. And, BEWARE, they padded our bill with drinks we did not have. The decor is very pretty, though. But I couldn't recommend this place even for a one-time try."

Located in the West Village, Bar Bolonat offers an exuberant celebration of modern Mediterranean and new Israeli cuisines. Bold flavors and spices are staples on Chef Einat Admony’s playful, seasonally-inspired menu. Sharing is encouraged when selecting from small plates, appetizers and entrees. Menu offerings change often, and we use local, seasonal, sustainably harvested produce where possible. <br /><br />The Wine list features an array of small production from various Mediterranean countries, including Israeli wines, high-quality selections with an emphasis on traditional and natural winemaking. Our wine list is hand-chosen for flavor, uniqueness and tradition.<br /><br />Bar Bolonat can host parties for up to 20 guests in the private dining room, and the full restaurant is available for large private functions for lunch or dinner. The full restaurant can accommodate up to 55 guests for seated events and up to 75 guests for cocktail receptions.<br />

"Very tasty Israeli/Middle Easter treats. This place is very popular right now, so get there early if you don't want to wait for a table. Small plates are quite small, pricey, but tasty. Try the chocolate falafel dessert!"
