A sultry steakhouse in New York City’s Greenwich Village where old-world glamour meets modern style and sophistication. Experience the combination of charred cuts perfectly paired with decadent sides, such as Truffle Creamed Spinach and Goose Fat Potatoes. And be sure to save room for the famed 24-Layer Chocolate Cake. <br /><br />Named a top steakhouse by Zagat and awarded four stars by Forbes, the namesake cut of aged beef isn't the only work of art to marvel upon...just take a look at the walls and tell us you don’t agree. Black and white vintage photos of bordello girls from the original 1900’s Studio Manasse collection reference an era of decadence and seduction.<br /><br />Visit our second NYC location, the new Strip House Midtown at 44th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, or on the Las Vegas Strip at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Volvér means ‘to return,’ and the restaurant is a ‘return’ for Chef Jose Garces, one of the country’s leading chefs and restaurateurs. Chef Garces brings his more than 15 years of global culinary exploration to Volvér, ‘returning’ fondly to some of his favorite meals and re-imagining them with his signature flair.<br></br><br />The ever-evolving menus highlight seasonal ingredients prepared with modern techniques that capture and amplify their inherent flavors, all inspired by Chef Garces’ travels around the world. Regional specialties, including locally raised meat, poultry and seafood, and produce from Chef Garces’ own Luna Farm in nearby Bucks County, feature prominently on the inventive menu.<br></br><br />Bar Volvér is a comfortable setting for artful cocktails, wines and beers, complemented by Chef Garces’ exciting menu of globally influenced small plates including tartares, tartines, cheeses and charcuterie. All dishes are available a la carte. Reservations are not required.

"There was very little, if anything, to fault. The staff were very knowledgable and pleasant. The food got progressively better and the complimenting wines from the tasting menu were spot on."

Little Nonna’s is an Italian-American eatery in Center City’s bustling Midtown Village. Inspired by the “red sauce” family-owned ristorantes of Italian immigrants, Chef Turney offers thoughtful interpretations of homestyle Italian-American dishes with an all-Italian wine list and handcrafted cocktails. The cozy 40-seat restaurant is evocative of an Italian grandmother’s living room, circa 1950, featuring vintage lace in the windows, hanging antique copper pots and an outdoor garden that seats an additional 40 guests.

"Unfortunately, we were not impressed and doubt we would return. There are too many good restaurants in Philadelphia to return to average."
