Delivering the bounty of the eastern shore line to the Upper West Side is Ed’s Chowder House, a new restaurant by Chef Ed Brown (chef/owner of Michelin Star-rated restaurant eighty one) and China Grill Management. Inspired by the ports of the East Coast, Brown’s refined yet unpretentious take on authentic “sea shack cuisine” features signature seafood in a vibrant, energetic setting complete with a raw bar and a full-service Chowder Bar serving crisp cocktails, cold microbrews, namesake chowders, steamers, lobster rolls and more.

"Had a fantastic lobster roll - one of the best ever paired with splendid cole slaw and a side of seasoned fries. Heaven!! The only drawback was the inattentive service. Not only was the waiter out of site when we wanted to order, he remained inaccesible to us for some time. We ordered pre-dinner drinks by label and the waiter assured us they poured our favored gin at the bar. Since the cocktails didn't taste quite right, as we left we spoke to the bartender who confirmed that the gin we ordered and were promised by the waiter is not served at Ed's. A delightful food experience diminished slightly by careless service."

Dining at Whitehouse-Crawford is a true Walla Walla experience. Our foods are sourced from local farmers and artisans, our wines from local producers, and the dining space is a unique piece of Walla Walla history.

"Walla Walla has not been the town of my childhood for sometime, probably since good winemaking started over 20 years ago. Everytime I return from New York to visit family, I make the pilgrimage to Whitehouse Crawford on the site of the old lumber yard of my youth. The food is always memorable and the service never disappoints. Last week was no exception. We had a superb family dinner for nine and nothing but raves from everyone visiting town from restaurant-havens such as Portland, San Francisco, and the California Central Coast Wine Country."

For nearly 35 years, Il Mulino New York has prepared authentic Abruzzese cuisine with unparalleled service. <br /><br />There’s no place like Il Mulino New York. The luxury Italian restaurant’s flagship Greenwich Village outpost initiated New York’s fine Italian dining trend and is still prized in the city’s elite dining scene. Zagat has rated Il Mulino New York as Manhattan’s No. 1 Italian restaurant for decades and has said the restaurant provides "one-of-a-kind" cuisine filled with delicious flavors, creating an "outstanding Italian classic" restaurant where "every dish is a masterpiece." <br /><br />Executive Chef Michele Mazza, who hails from Naples, Italy, has proudly carried this tradition since 2003. Fresh ingredients, artistic preparation and impeccable service distinguish Il Mulino New York as one of the world’s premiere restaurants. In addition to fine dining, Il Mulino New York provides excellent off-site catering and products.

You'll know the moment you arrive that Lawry's The Prime Rib is an extraordinary restaurant. The signature Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef are aged 21 days, rock salt-roasted to perfection then carved to order tableside from shining silver carts. The famous Spinning Bowl Salad, whipped cream horseradish, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and warm hospitality complete the experience that has landed Lawry's on countless "10 Best" lists and made it a dining legend since 1938.

"It was around when I grew up in LA and maintains its standards to this day - the finest prime rib. It's on my calendar every time I return to LA because there's really nothing like it. It's about a tradition of the highest quality, impeccable service and a beautiful series of dining rooms."

Attentive service, fine American cuisine, a Grand Award-winning wine list and unique, historical surroundings set ‘21’ apart. Once a glamorous speakeasy, today '21' is one of the most celebrated restaurants in New York City. In addition to our two restaurants, the Bar Room and 'Upstairs', this four-story townhouse features ten private party rooms ideal for celebrations, meetings and banquets, including the legendary Prohibition-era Wine Cellar. <br /><br />DRESS CODE: No jeans or sneakers. Jackets are necessary for gentlemen.

"Too many of New York's great, iconic dining establishments have been lost for not following trends. One supports some of the old icons out of duty, just to reward their quality and commitment to tradition. "21" deserves a visit because it's also fun and full of atmosphere. Like a good novel, it's a fantasy trip, a literal time-travel experience to a more civilized time. If we ever lose this place, we will regret it more than the demolition of Penn Station, because it will surely be replaced by some "on-trend" restaurant that in time will probably seem as awful as the current Penn Station does today."

Amma, the name means "Mother", is an intimate restaurant and has the same soothing qualities. Opened in 2002 by Anju Sharma, is a gem tucked away on the upper east side of Manhattan, the stylish restaurant evokes images of spices, with its ochre colored walls and sensuous red-orange suede wrap-around banquettes. Art deco chandeliers and pristine linens complete the ambience. In a short period of time, Amma has received numerous accolades from the press. Amma was rated "Two Stars" by Mr. William Grimes of NY Times. At Amma, the wine list is updated on a weekly basis and is carefully chosen from 30 countries from around the world. Amma, shows its guest a different India, so old that it is fresh.
