Park Avenue Spring has débuted at 360 Park Avenue South at 26th Street in Manhattan. Over a forty-eight hour timeframe, the restaurant was completely transformed from Park Avenue Winter to a completely new décor for Spring, inspired by a classic English garden with wild, raw vegetation and materials. To convert the cuisine to the new season, Chef Zene Flinn created the refined, spring-inspired menu with contemporary-classic dishes. The menu's focus evolved from showcasing winter’s rustic flavors to highlighting the best of spring’s produce. A compelling cocktail program also invokes the verdant abundance of Spring with hand-crafted drinks that feature rhubarb, hibiscus, and even snap peas.

"We arrived at the end of the brunch time--2:30--on a Sunday and the place was nicely quiet--not too many tables were occupied. The prix fixe was a good deal. The choices were varied. Breakfast risotto was delicious and the eggs benedict with avocado was wonderful."

The Library at The Public is an Astor-era lounge tucked away in the mezzanine level of The Public Theater's new downtown home at Astor Place serving classic and inspired cocktails, wine, and Chef Andrew Carmellini's eclectic American menu sourcing local ingredients and New York influence.

"If you are going to a show here this is great. Food is adequate, the room is pleasant. They will check your coat and keep while you attend the show."

Multi-Level Italian Restaurant offering two private dinning areas, outdoor seating and an intimate low ceiling bar.<br />Painted white and blue with dark wood and chrome accents, the space suggests a small yacht cruising around the Island of Capri.

"Nothing knocked my socks off on this visit--which is sad because usually this places amazes. Food was good but nothing to write home about. Scallop appetizer with mushrooms was monochromatic--all components looked and tasted the same. Risotto was okay, not transcendent. Maybe the stars of the kitchen took a January vacation."

La Fonda del Sol translates to “inn of the sun” and was first open from 1960 to the early 1970’s. The visionary “theme” restaurant was hailed as ahead of its time by many critics, with a menu that brought Latin and Spanish cuisine to New York for the first time in a fine dining setting.<br><br>Today, La Fonda del Sol provides an unprecedented stage for modern Spanish cuisine in New York. The split-level area consists of a bar room on the ground floor and the main dining room on the upper level, separated by an illuminated glass wall behind the bar. <b>Reservations are accepted for the upstairs, main dining room only</b>. <b>If you have a PROMO CODE, please enter it in the special request box when making your reservation</b>.

"La fonda's main dining room is pretty and very quiet--especially when compared to the front room at the bar. There is a separate dining room menu and you can also order from the bar menu that has more tapas. The mango/jalapeno margaritas were perfect--just enough fire. Black bean soup was great. We also ordered the fluke ceviche, garlic shrimps, bravas (potatoes) and chicken empanadas. All were good. Service was very gentle and attentive."

Delmonico's began as the first restaurant in the United States and has had a profound impact on American dining tradition. Our setting is where nearly two centuries of notable poets, affluent socialites, celebrities and presidents have celebrated in the splendor that is Delmonico's. Delmonico's welcomes Executive Chef Bill Oliva our kitchen. While preserving the classic dishes such as Lobster Newburg, Delmonico's Steak and Baked Alaska, Bill brings a level of culinary sophistication to Delmonico's with his addition of creative seafood offerings and other inventive dishes.

"This place really deserves to be more popular. The food and the service were very good on this visit. The filet mignon was "like butter," and the lobster mac 'n' cheese was fabulous. The raw oysters were great. Good selection of wines by the glass."

"Lovely as always. A quiet mid-week night just before the holidays began. The ambiance is warm and the food never disappoints. Gratis panetone for dessert. Burrata with arugula and prosciuto----delicious lemon accents on the greens. Spinach fettucine with a tasty meat ragout. Lemon chicken with delicious fried potatoes. Tartuffo for dessert. God bless us everyone!"

With its large oval booths and rich bronze leather banquets, copper ceiling with walnut trim and particular lighting, the main dining room at Harry's Café & Steak caters to both Wall Streeters as well as residents of the burgeoning Financial district neighborhood. Patrons will immediately be drawn to the 47 foot bar, covered in solid, rich American Black Walnut. Gone are the six free telephones, stock ticker and munifacts machines that once graced the bar area of the original, replaced by a professional sound system and separate bar seating designed to create a distinct lounge area where guests can enjoy great cocktails as well as food. Our separate wine cellar dining room evokes memories of the original restaurant in a more intimate setting. The 70 seat wine cellar has its own entrance located on Pearl Street but is also accessible from the main dining room.

"Not many full service restaurants in this food-cart and fast-food festooned neighborhood. Lunch at Harry's is a pleasant option--burgers are good, lobster-roll-kinda-thing is good, some soups are good (shrimp bisque was pretty tasteless), salads are nice. Service is quick. Place is a little noisy but decor is pleasant. And in case anyone still drinks alcohol at lunch--they do have a full bar."
