General Assembly 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!"

Set in the sleek W Hotel Times Square setting, Blue Fin oohs and aahs its audience with a prominent raw bar, extensive sushi menu and much more! Unwind at either of Blue Fin's two bars and sip a seasonal cocktail or glass of wine from the 400+ bottle wine list. Up early for a matinee or just on your way to the office? Blue Fin gets the early riser going with smoothies and fresh squeezed juices, in addition to power-packed breakfast offerings featuring farm-fresh ingredients. To create this two-story, 400-seat dining spectacle in the epicenter of the most exciting city in the world, design firm Yabu Pushelberg provided original features as an expansive sparkling wall of highly polished mirror, glowing resin tables, and a floating staircase that leads to live music upstairs.

"Blue Fin is a great for lunch or dinner when in Times Square. It's a nice twist from the tourist-packed commercial establishments in the area."

"I first tried this restaurant because a friend of mine said "you can't get a bad meal at Giorgio's"...and she was right. The food is consistently delicious and the service is excellent. The prices are reasonable and alwyas a good value. This has now become one of my "go to" restaurants. Eat at Giorgio's and you won't be disappointed."

"While New York is known for pizza, there are few places in Manhattan to have authentic Napolitano pizza. Pizzarte is one of them. The restaurant has a very nice ambiance and is one of the nicer pizza restaurants in midtown."

A Greenwich Village favorite, this collaboration between partners Mario Batali, Joseph Bastianich, and Mark Ladner specializes in high quality, moderately priced Roman fare with a New York edge. Lupa is a fun, boisterous and unpretentious trattoria with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. <br />

"Delicious food, nice ambiance, good wines, professional and friendly service. What more could you ask for? Be sure to buy some desserts or a baguette on the way out (from their retail bakery in the reception area)."

Opened by Jimmy Bradley in October 2001, this Tribeca favorite is a restaurant remarkably in tune with its neighborhood and the city at large. Featuring seasonal contemporary American cuisine from Chef Bradley and Executive Chef Ari Bokovza, and sincere hospitality in a handsome and casually elegant setting, The Harrison instantly makes you feel like you’ve come home. The restaurant also boasts a private dining room housed in its award-winning wine cellar, and outdoor café with Hudson River views and a bar that begs to be dined at for a less formal meal. Since April 2011, Harrison diners have been enjoying the cool, casual vibe of The Harrison at lunchtime. Lunch at The Harrison is suited for business meetings, a quick bite, and special occasions alike. Whether it’s for lunch, dinner or a special event, The Harrison offers rustic, soulful fare, continuing owner Jimmy Bradley’s vision of bold, seasonally inspired cooking with sincere hospitality.

"I have been eating at this restaurant periodically since it opened. The food is consistently good, the service is professional and they have a great bar for cocktails. On my recent visit I noticed that the wine list has improved. My one complaint in the past was that the wine list was overpriced and underwhelming. Well, I think that has been corrected. The wine list now spans price ranges and offers some affordable delicious reds. Kudos for finally getting the wine list right!"
