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.

"I have always been happy at the Blue Fin but they changed the menu since the last time so that we had fewer choices, plus they eliminated some of the dishes we have particularly enjoyed in the past. The dishes we had this time were good but not exceptional, although the corn chowder was a great starter. Service was very, very good. I may go back given that it is convenient to the Broadway theaters, but I am not as enthusiastic as I have been in the past"

Cadaqués is one of the most romantic restaurants in the heart of Williamsburg. Our menu is an inspiration of the southwest of France, you can enjoy small tapas and a variety of traditional mediterranean plates.<br />We have a wide selection of dishes suitable for vegetarian and the restaurant has an intensive wine and beer list.<br />Atmosphere is casual with a great service.

"Casual restaurant with a bar atmosphere. SPanish in name and in many of the items on the menu, though several of them did not seem particularly Spanish. That said, our paella Valenciana was excellent -- flavorful and with the rice done right (fluffy, not gummy as so often happens in ho-hum places) We started with the fried cauliflower, which was surprisingly tasty, and ended with creme caramel (not flan, interestingly), which was very good. The waiters were pleasant, decor nothing much to speak of. We were glad we went"
