"Innovative menu, but with limited choices. The food was quite good, and well prepared. The service was efficient and friendly. My principal issue is that the restaurant is in a very casual setting, and is immediately adjacent to Eli's marketplace, yet the prices are pretty steep for a restaurant of this sort. Many entrees are in the mid-to-high 30$ range. Perhaps this would explain why the restaurant had so many empty tables at 8:00 on a Saturday night.
Nonetheless, because of the quality of the food and service, I will likely go back again.

"My wife and I found the food and service to be quite good, although the food courses came out so quickly that we felt a little rushed. The restaurant was jumping on the Friday night we were there, and the noise level was far past energetic, making it difficult to hold a conversation without shouting."

Ichiro offers the finest and freshest Japanese cuisine and sushi available on the UES. The dining room offers an elegant yet comfortable space with impeccable customer service. Ichiro is just an overall great neighborhood spot.

"I have been to Ristorante Morini many times, and find it to be consistently excellent in every regard. From the moment one arrives and is greeted by charming and gracious hosts/hostesses, to the outstanding menu and wine list, friendly and accommodating wait staff, and food that is always a joy to behold and savor. And all of this excellence is proffered in a relaxed, non-stuffy manner. Kudos to all."

Acknowledging that creativity must come from inspiration, Empellón Cocina sees the vast greatness of Mexican foodways as our portal. In our kitchen, we reach for ingredients like hoja santa leaf and Mexican chorizo both because they inspire us and, quite simply, because they are good. Born out of a heartfelt fascination with this country and its regional cuisines, Empellón Cocina strives not to imitate or replicate, but rather to draw upon with an appropriate amount of respect, humility, and awe.<br /><br />Like so many chefs that have tinkered, tweaked, and challenged their chosen cooking discipline in New York City, we embrace that spirit of freedom as we think through and toil over dishes that interest and excite us. We believe a restaurant should be allowed to change its mind every step of the way, and as such our approach is continuously evolving and deeply personal.
