Following the success of Beaumarchais East Hampton, restaurateur Jonathan Rapillo teams up with Celebrity Chef Donatella Arpaia and returns to the same space to present a new restaurant and ultralounge concept this summer.<br /><br />Sienna offers a European-inspired experience melding the flair of the French Riviera with a touch of warm American hospitality. Nightlife will be characterized by a summer residency of New York City's hottest venues at Sienna's Ultralounge.<br /><br />All guests are invited to join us for bottle service if you wish to keep your table when the restaurant transitions into a night club.<br /><br />Sienna Restaurant & Ultralounge is not affiliated with Finale East or EMM Group.

"I was so disappointed with Sienna, I really haven never been so disgusted with service, venue, and lack of consideration for patrons as I was here. Just to give you a background, I am an open table VIP, and dine out at least 6-7 times a month with open table, this is not counting impromptu dinners. The restaurant portion of the venue was entirely empty, not another group to be seen, so sitting us right next to a micros computer stand is unacceptable. The waitstaff was attentive when we ordered drinks but thereafter just stood to the side staring at us for about 20 minutes before coming to take our order. Considering that I had 20 minutes to peruse the menu, I realized the menu was missing half of the options that are on opentables menu."

Restaurateurs and Nightlife impresarios Dave Casey and Philip Quilter are bringing a sophisticated Restaurant and Events Lounge, Suite 36, to Midtown Manhattan. Named after the private suites that line the parameter and mezzanine of the space, this multi-functional venue will offer a relaxed yet refined setting to enjoy favorite athletic pastimes, dining and exciting Nightlife programming. We will provide a menu that can stand on its own and will satisfy a particular palate while staying true to the relaxed refinement of the surroundings. In addition to sports viewings and intimate gatherings within our suites, the venue Suite 36 allows for various entertainment options from social to business events. In conjunction, Suite 36 houses a separate juice bar, "Pulp NYC" which will serve carefully curated fresh juice combinations throughout the day, to support both body and soul.

"This place is super cute, they have a ton of TVs and played the volume for the Ranger game. The food was better than average bar food. I had a party of six and the restaurant was well appointed. I'd recommend suite 36."

Pounds & Ounces striking décor and unique menu come together to create a chic vibe in a comfortable eating, drinking and gathering destination. The restaurant offers something for everyone with its unique and eclectic American menu.<br /><br />Located in the heart of Chelsea, Pounds & Ounces is the nightly go-to as well as weekend brunch. Thanks to its all-encompassing menu, captivating cocktails, and hip music, Pounds & Ounces is the liveliest scene in the neighborhood highlighted by its centerpiece; a long alabaster and metal communal table that runs down the center of the space.<br /><br />What better place to be yourself, sip the latest cocktails like the Ginger Kiss (Avion Silver, muddled mint, ginger beer, Cassis), and Ro & Barb (Cruzan Rum, Rhubarb Liqueur, muddled rosemary, citrus & pineapple juice) and share appetizers and small plates such as our signature Tuna Tartare Tacos, Rock Shrimp and our assorted artisanal Cheese & Meat Plates<br />

"This was my first time here, and I am hesitant to write a review because I don't want everyone to go! I think the brunch was fantastic. I had the tuna tartare tacos and the lobster corn dog, both were great. Our waiter was so attentive and sweet, I would have to say brunch is a must do at pounds and ounces."

***** SEAFOOD GREEK RESTAURANT ***** Located in the Heart of Midtown, steps away from Grand Central Terminal. Ammos provides upscale, authentic cuisine from various regions of Greece. The menu features a wide array of mezedes and pristinely fresh seafood as well as whole grilled fish. Ammos is the Greek word for &quot;sand&quot; and the restaurant’s airy, open design, light woods and weathered stones conjure the sun-drenched atmosphere of the Greek islands.

"Ammos food was good, the fish was tasty. It's definitely not a fine dining place and they should probably lower their pricing to reflect that. Having said that, the service was outstanding and that really goes. Long way. The wine was very good, they have a good happy hour special of you work in the area or find yourself nearby. I'd recommend going but I would make a habit out of eating dinner there."

Rich earth tones of orange, red and brown impart warmth to the cool and tranquil space. Thin tapestries of translucent rose fabric are embellished with flame motifs and suspended from the ceiling, creating a separate seating area perfect for a light bite near the large front windows. <br />Famous for its unique and mouth-watering interpretation of Japanese cuisine. Upscale Japanese fare is given a jolt of new life through an innovative use of ingredients, resulting in refreshing and exciting flavor combinations. Crispy Rice with Spice Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna. Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crabmeat is wrapped in a thin rice crepe paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection. Hamachi Fusion with Soy-Citrus and Truffle Essence all artfully plated by Koi’s skilled culinary team.

"If you are in the Bryant park area, and looking for a nice restaurant to go to. Koi is in the Bryant park hotel and has entrance to the cellar, a lounge downstairs.
The food is great, the sticky rice with tuna tartare is delicious. Also the lobster tacos were really great.
The servers are pretty good, my only complaint was I kept needing to ask for water. Granted I was drinking my water pretty fast, I had ordered something a bit spicy.
Overall worth an occasional meal.

Since first opening its doors in 1984, Gotham Bar and Grill has epitomized New York City dining at its finest, serving Executive Chef Alfred Portale's sublime and refreshingly accessible Contemporary American Cuisine in a dining room that is consistently packed with sophisticated diners from all over the country and the world. One of the secrets of Gotham's success is that it is an institution that has never become institutional. The unparalleled quality of the food and service are constants, but the rest of the Gotham experience is constantly updated to keep the restaurant feeling as fresh as the day it opened. New menu items are introduced each season, the wine list is always evolving, and the dining room is regularly revamped. Gotham Bar and Grill has been honored as Most Outstanding Restaurant in the nation by the James Beard Foundation, which named Chef/Owner Alfred Portale Most Outstanding Chef in the nation for 2006.

"I've been to Gotham several times and every time it doesn't disappoint. It's always a treat. The only complaint I had were the drinks were a little slow to come out but the restaurant was packed. It's definitely a great meal and venue."
