Cafe Un Deux Trois has been located in the heart of Times Square since 1977. We opened when the neighborhood was still very rough , and quickly became THE brasserie to stop for dinner and drinks before heading off to Studio 54 and Xenon to dance the night away. <br />We were and still are frequented by American and European theater and film actors, as well as politicians, directors, local New Yorkers and tourists from around the world. You will find many a Broadway cast and crew member hanging out after the show on any given night.<br /><br />We recently had a facelift featuring enormous windows and a new color scheme.<br />The food while still classic bistro fare has expanded to include a variety of sandwiches, hamburgers and an extensive breakfast.<br />We have also added a selection of savory and sweet crepes to our dining choices.

"A wonderful bistro menu with great breakfast/lunch varieties, egg dishes, crepes, sandwiches, entrees...whatever size appetites. Food nicely seasoned, presented and tasty. Great prix fixe options also. Attentive staff, very personable and accommodating."

Frankie and Johnnie's Steakhouse has a look that is sleek and uncluttered, with a warmth that is inviting to all of its guests. The menu is distinguished with its exceptional quality of USDA certified prime dry-aged beef and a secret trend of spices that seasons every steak before it hits the grill. Also known for the freshest of seafood. Lobster, Chilean Sea Bass and Dover Sole.

"Having lunch at Frankie & Johnnie's was so pleasant. Not only was it nice and bright inside due to the big view window in front, but the beautiful stain glass window in the back was so beautifully colorful that we never noticed it at night dining there. The lunch menu offered a nice variety and a prix fixe which my husband loved. The food was prepared to perfection as requested. The wait staff was very attentive and very accommodating as we wanted a taste of a couple of wines before ordering glasses of."

When in Baltimore enjoy the city's freshest seafood along with Inner Harbor's best view. The Rusty Scupper offers a tempting array of local seafood specialties from Maryland Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes to pan-seared Rockfish with Lobster. You can also enjoy classic dishes such as Beef Tenderloin & Grilled Atlantic Salmon, all served in a spectacular waterfront setting.

"Our table by the window offered great views as we dined with our friends. We enjoyed the flavors of our entrees except that the fish was cooked a bit more done than we expected."

Please visit our website to learn more about The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges http://www.theinnatpoundridge.com/<br /><br />Chef Jean‑Georges introduces his latest venture, a casually elegant restaurant ensconced in the picturesque town of Pound Ridge, New York. Here, Jean‑Georges cultivates a truly seasonal, farm-to-table cuisine, with ingredients sourced from the Hudson Valley and New England, whenever possible. Constructed in 1833 as a residence and serving later as an inn, the building has been painstakingly renovated to preserve as many of the original materials as possible, including four working fireplaces. Thomas Juul-Hansen designed the restaurant’s interior with a modern yet rustic sensibility; zinc and marble accent stone and reclaimed wood. The restaurant’s lighting, artfully conceived by Hervé Descottes, employs paper shades and Edison fixtures to create warmth throughout.

"We have never had a bad time for lunch, brunch, dinner and have had excellent service, except for this time. Wait person was not as attentive and Our menus were not delivered to us until 20 mins after we sat down. The maitre d' served the drinks. After we ordered, our food took a while to come. Only when we called her over did the wait person apologize for the wait. After we were finally served, she did not come over to see how everything was until we were almost finished. The restaurant may have been short of staff in the dining room and in the kitchen, but some courtesy by the staff is still warranted and new staff need to be trained better to handle customers in more stressful times."

"Something for everyone. Truffle pizza was so yummy. We shared as apps ,but can be one person's meal. Tuna burger was very tasty and cooked as requested as well as the beef burger. Best crunchy french fries accompanied both dishes. Cocktails were very refreshing, especially the raspberry lichee bellini. The caramel ice cream with "cracker jack" candied popcorn was so fresh and crispy...loved the chocolate sauce with it. Very nutty coffee. Wait staff was very attentive and courteous."

Ruby's is a brilliant gem in downtown Rye. It is chic, casual and comfortable. It charms guests with its varied menu, friendly and professional service, and its lively ambience. Ruby's stylish décor showcases an authentic zinc bar from Paris, beaded chandeliers and ruby red drapes. From its coffered ceiling and tasseled sconces down to its marble mosaic floor, no precious stone has been left unturned.

CAFÉ BOULUD features a French-American menu inspired by Chef Daniel Boulud's four culinary muses: la tradition, classic French cuisine; la saison, seasonal delicacies; le potager, the vegetable garden; and le voyage, the flavors of world cuisines. <br /><br />In addition to dinner seven nights, we feature a $37 two-course prix-fixe lunch six days a week, and brunch on Sundays. The restaurant is both a neighborhood gem and a destination for food lovers in search of casually elegant dining. Two private dining rooms seating 18 guest each are available for your private entertaining needs, and may be combined to accommodate 40.<br /><br />The restaurant's adjacent BAR PLEIADES serves inventive cocktails and a luxurious bar menu from 3 pm onwards.<br /><br />DANIEL • DB Bistro Moderne •Boulud Sud• Bar Boulud • DBGB Kitchen & Bar

X2O Xaviars on the Hudson is Peter X Kelly’s latest addition to the Xaviars Restaurant Group. It sits in the water on the only turn of the century Victorian pier still in use on the Hudson River. X2O’s Main Dining Salon's 25 foot vaulted ceiling and 3 walls of glass frame offers views of the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges, as well as sunsets over the Palisades. Guests encounter dishes incorporating classic French technique with Italian and Spanish influences, and Asian embellishments which create a wholly original cuisine unique to the Hudson Valley. The Dylan Lounge is a vibrant, up-tempo space with a sophisticated and playful bent that offers guests more dining options. Guests are invited to sample a variety of small plates and sushi, while dining at the Communal Table, sushi bar, or at traditional banquette and table seating.

"We have never been disappointed eating at X2O, whether it is brunch, lunch or dinner. The food is always consistent and prepared well with wonderful flavors. The wait staff is always very attentive and courteous. The views from all the windows are very scenic. Always recommended."

The last of its kind near 42nd St., Chez Josephine is a neighborhood gem. A tribute to legendary Josephine Baker, this Parisian bistro with live music and tantalizing menu exudes theatrical panache. One of New York's most romantic restaurants, a bit of Montmartre on 42nd St., the landmark jewel sparkles with an intimate setting of red velvet walls, a cavalcade of chandeliers and a blue-tin ceiling. The eclectic menu reinvents the traditional cuisine of the French bistro in an explosion of tantalizing flavor. Jean-Claude and Jarry Baker are your warm and welcoming hosts who treat you as family whether you come before the show, after the show, for a leisurely dinner in-between, or a drink at the zinc bar.<br><br>Chez Josephine draws a crowd unlike any other in New York as food critic Bryan Miller noted when he wrote: The dining room is a confluence of the famous and the fashionable, the infamous and unsung-with every shade of skin on earth and indeed you feelthe magic of Chez Josephine.

"A nice convenient place for brunch prior to a matinee, just down the street from theatre companies. Sunday prix fixe offered a nice selection for the price of $19.29, the year Josephine opened her first bistro in Paris. Cozy decor with Parisien influences and artwork and posters of Josephine. Dishes were nicely prepared with adequate portions for a filling, not overly stuffed meal. The spaghetti with meat sauce was very flavorful, the lobster bisque had a wonderful concentrated lobster flavor. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly."
