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.

The famous Sunset Tower Hotel has undergone its first major renovation since the 1980's. The Tower Bar & Terrace Restaurant is now located adjacent to the newly designed lobby and offers a swank lounge, bar and al fresco dining experience. Custom made banquettes fit directly into windows that showcase an unparalleled view of the Los Angeles skyline. Art deco design influences include walnut with gold inlay trim in a subtle, muted color scheme. The delectable menu features California Bistro with Italian fare. A dress code is enforced, please call for information.

"Wow - a restaurant with this view and an historic building often can coast on the food, service, and overall ambience. This restaurant is a knockout. Dimitri really makes it all work with amazing attention to detail. Great views, amazing food and drink, the occasional celeb - what else could you want for the toatal LA experience?"

Consistently voted as one of Hawaii's best restaurants, James Beard award-winning Chef Alan Wong uses the freshest locally grown produce and the bounty of the Pacific Ocean to create local favorites with a contemporary twist. Inspired by the unique ethnic influences found in Hawaii today, his menu reflects Hawaii's cultural diversity of its people, traditions, and lifestyles. "Taste Hawaii."

"We've been making the pilgrimage to Alan Wong's everytime we're lucky enough to be in Honolulu. This was the best ever!! The flavors popped and the preparation was refined in every sense (whole tomato starter, feta salad starter, lobster lasagna, and shrimp/clam linguine, mint chocolate sandwich desert, and a wonderful Barolo). Please open in New York, Alan!!"

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."
