Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian brings his vision of a contemporary New York grand café to life at The National Bar & Dining Rooms. Housed in the same 1927 Emery Roth-designed building as The Benjamin Hotel, The National's all-occasion modern bistro offerings satiate guests from breakfast through late night. Modeled after the celebrated grand cafés in Europe, The National is both residential and metropolitan in design and offers thoughtful details such as antiqued mirrors, a bronze spiral staircase, distressed peacock blue and chocolate leather banquettes, classic marble table tops, and black and white glazed-tile flooring.<br /><br />Each Sunday evening from 6pm to 10pm, The National features a lineup of New York City bands performing an array of musical selections such as classic jazz, funk, blues, and more.

"I go to The National Bar occasionally to have breakfast, and I ordered the egg frittata which was about ok. The atmosphere is nice and the restaurant is conveniently located. But the service has been inattentive and rather unfriendly. When I experienced this once before I thought it was a mishap. But it seems to be a trademark. The should better employ people who wake up early."

Juni is Chef Shaun Hergatt’s boutique restaurant celebrating the height of the season, within Manhattan’s Hotel Chandler [12 East 31st Street]. An intimate affair between the guest and the chef, the 50-seat restaurant offers a seasonally evolving menu showcasing the bounty of the harvest and ingredients when they are at their freshest and finest. Juni derives its name from the Latin word for “June,” the heart of the season.

"I agree with all the previous raving reviews. I have to entertain quite a lot for lunch and I have eaten in many restaurants in Manhattan. This is a true gem which stands out in any respect: Food, service, atmosphere. Enough said: Just try it out for yourself."
