LUCE is a popular Italian restaurant located on the Manhattan's Upper West Side in the vicinity of Lincoln Center. Its creative menu, attractive location & experienced team offer an inviting fare right here in NYC. You will find LUCE to be warm, friendly & engaging experience that you'll be tempted to repeat. All together a wonderful dining experience at surprisingly reasonable prices. <br><br> LUCE's proximity to Lincoln Center makes this a perfect spot for pre and post theater dining. Our terazzo on Broadway is a must try place for lunch, dinner or our popular weekend brunch.

"First time diner at this W. side restaurant. Nice selection of entrees, reasonably priced, excellent service and convenient location. Unfortunately, became very noisy around 6:00 when restaurant filled up with early diners."

Petaluma Restaurant is an upscale Italian-inspired trattoria that has served the Upper East Side for over 28 years since opening its doors in 1985. After closing for a complete renovation in Winter 2013, Petaluma has reopened with new Executive Chef CJ Bivona, formerly the Executive Sous Chef at multiple James Beard Award nominated Yard Bird in Miami, and the Operations Team from The Line Group that has brought you Sons of Essex and Rochelle's in the Lower Eastside and The Raven in MePa. Open daily, Petaluma has lunch and dinner service plus brunch on the weekends.

"Wild salmon was delicious. Newly renovated but prefer the arrangement of tables prior to renovation."

5 Napkin Burger caters to those with the most discerning appetites. We offer a rare mix of classic and innovative burgers, tacos, grilled tuna salads and everything in between. Pair that with a custom cocktail, local lager or s’mores shake as you kick back or mingle in our bustling bistro setting. We welcome carnivores and vegetarians. We’re hosts to scenesters, professionals and families. We believe the burger experience is no loner one-way-fits-all and we hope you’ll join us in changing that definition.

Dafni Taverna, conveniently located in the heart of Times Square and the theatre district, provides a dining experience reminiscent of a small village in Greece. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, from the beamed ceiling to the wood plank floor, from the exposed brick wall to the soft Greek music playing in the background. Guests enjoy the hospitality and fine home cooking that the country is famous for. The restaurant serves authentic Greek cuisine, prepared simply and deliciously, using only the freshest and purest ingredients. The menu starts with a large selection of hot and cold meze, and an array of classic salads, as well as a few innovations. Entrees include many of the traditional dishes, a selection of charcoal-grilled meats and fish, and a few intriguing additions, such as grilled quail on a bed of spinach, and braised lamb shank with hilopites (a type of pasta). Delicious, homemade baklava, galaktoboureko and rice pudding are prepared fresh daily in our kitchen.

"Had to wait almost 15 for reserved table. Very high noise level. Portions were very large, but both salmon and seafood specialty lacked seasoning and were rather tasteless."
