Hudson Place, founded in 1990, conveys a maritime theme from New York City in the 1950s when the Big Apple was a robust merchant marine commerce center. Wood-paneled walls and large windows and a real fireplace compose the decor that recalls the ports that inspired the restaurant. <br /><br />Hudson Place is a simple restaurant that caters to the complex tastes of New Yorkers without being pretentious and trendy.<br />

We'll always have Paris in Bryant Park. Cozily situated behind landmark New York Public Library, Bryant Park serves as a stunning backdrop for this New American Grill & Cafe. Bryant Park Grill's elegant & sophisticated dining room is perfect for your business lunch or a night out on the town with friends. Enjoy a romantic dinner or a festive party under Bryant Park's heated holiday tent in the winter, while seasonal patio & roof dining are sure to make your summer evenings magical. For more casual dining, visit Bryant Park Cafe next door or just hang out at the Cafe Bar. <br /><br />The New York Times says that Bryant Park has become one of Manhattans loveliest public spaces, that has open air Bryant Park Cafe for casual dining and Bryant Park Grill for serious meals. The Grill is a gorgeous pavilion with a Hunt Slonem mural of birds stretching along one side of the dining room.

"overpriced by far, service was pathetic...food was good but there are better places to go to be overcharged and wait 30 minutes for the first salad course."

China Grill provides a globe-spanning culinary adventure in a spectacular setting. While Asian flavors and techniques are an influence, the menu is labeled as “world cuisine” with virtually every dish being prepared on either grills or in woks using ingredients gathered from pantries around the globe. Portions are generous, dramatically presented, and meant to be shared family style. Spectacular architectural settings, including an exhibition kitchen in the center of the restaurant are also part of the China Grill magic, creating a place to see and be seen. <br /><br />To check out what’s happening at your favorite hotspots, visit http://www.chinagrillmgt.com/restaurants-and-bars/china-grill-ny

Opened in March of 2002, Dolci has fast created its very own Cipriani "scene" thanks to its chic ambiance, attentive service and well-priced Venetian menu. The restaurant offers all day casual dining, and the bar has become a lively after work meeting place, renowned for its charming bartenders and sensational tower of prosciutto.

STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Midtown is located in Midtown Manhattan, just steps from the bustling Theatre District. STK Midtown includes an outdoor patio and separate bar during summer months. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. With a female-friendly mindset, STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Shrimp Rice Krispies; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jump Lump Crab Salad.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
