"Was visiting LA from the NY office. Took my west coast team out to dinner. Had a great time @ the Church Key. Really enjoyed the "dim sum" options and clever small plates. A really great restaurant if you want to blow off steam and have some fun."

At The Lambs Club, Chef Geoffrey Zakarian has created a relaxed and inviting restaurant serving updated bar & grill offerings. The main floor dining room is open breakfast, lunch and dinner whereas the mezzanine lounge comfortably accommodates daytime meetings or refined cocktails in the evening with large round banquettes and floor to ceiling windows looking out onto 44th Street. Located within The Chatwal Hotel, The Lambs Club provides room service for the 76 hotel rooms and oversees private dining in the various event spaces throughout the building. This landmark masterpiece was originally built and designed by Stanford White in 1905 and reopened after a major renovation and restoration with every detail overseen by architect Thierry Despont.

"I meet colleagues for breakfast at the Lambs Club several times a month. It's a great place to conduct business. It's a quiet atmosphere, with wonderful service and great food. A nice place to meet outside the office."

Bobby Van's newest restaurant is located on 45th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue in the heart of Times Square shopping and theatre district. Two floors of dining inside with an outdoor cafe. Perfect for lunch or dinner, and before and after theater dining.

Esca is a Southern Italian Seafood Restaurant created by Mario Batali, Joseph Bastianich & David Pasternack. Esca showcases the style & sensibility of Italian coastal cooking. Dave went to Italy & saw firsthand what they were talking about. After years of cooking French food, Dave had finally found the food he had always wanted to cook. The best fish available, prepared in a simple & delicious way. In Italy that means the local catch, but in New York that means the best fish of the Pacific, Mediterranean & our own backyard.<br><br>At Esca you can eat the most sought after Pacific Ocean delicacies along side Fluke that Dave caught on his day off. The menu changes daily & is driven by the fish markets of the world & the farms of Dave’s friends. Esca is the place where you can have stunning raw fish, an incredible bowl of pasta & then a Mediterranean Branzino cooked in sea salt. Esca is the best of Italian coastal cooking with access to the world’s greatest fish.

"I took some of my staff to Esca for a very classy lunch. The fish is amazing, the pasta is flavorful, and the service is wonderful.
It's a little expensive, but well worth the price, the food is so good. A great spot near the theatre district for lunch or dinner."

Chef Luke Wallace prepares seasonal inspired dishes at Tom Colicchio’s casual Flatiron restaurant. The menu features a wide variety of small & large plates from Snacks, House-Made Charcuterie, Salumi, Artisanal Cheeses, Salads as well as Handmade Pastas, all expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The rustic and comfortable dining room lends itself to a quick lunch where guests can try our Croque Monsieur, a full dinner of Choucroute Garnie and Ricotta Ravioli, or a snack of Pecorino Arancini and East Coast Oysters. We are also serving a soul-satisfying brunch with dishes like Pork Scrapple & Eggs and our Applewood Smoked Salmon prepared in-house. Be sure to save room for Pastry Chef, Abby Swain’s creations including her take on the S’mores Tart.

"Went to Craftbar to have dinner with a good friend who was visiting NYC. I've been several times. I love the food, I love the ambience and I'm always impressed by the level of service. A top-notch place if you're looking to dine in the Flatiron neighborhood."

A neighborhood staple, The Standard Grill is classic New York meets new American cuisine. The front café, bar and street-side bistro is clean and bright with white oak and tile décor and features fresh oysters, specialty cocktails and charcuterie. The main dining room is cozy, old-world with red leather banquets, barrel vaulted ceilings, and a floor paved in copper pennies. The Standard Grill utilizes the freshest local ingredients, blending traditional steak house with new American grill sensibilities.

"Celebrated my friend's birthday at the Standard Grill. We had a great time. Good food, good drink, great atmosphere. It's a little expensive, but worth it for a special occasion or wanting to have a really fun night out. We finished the night at the Boom Boom Room atop the Standard Hotel, which has AMAZING views. We got to the bar relatively early for a Saturday night (and it was super cold). I would make reservations if planning to go on a popular night, but totally worth it!"
