Opened in 1994, Nicola Marzovilla's warm and welcoming restaurant has been a favorite for more than 18 years for those in search of hearty, delicious Italian specialties. Its celebrated menu draws on the regional cuisine of the Marzovillas' homeland, Puglia. Nicola's mother, Dora, prepares hand-rolled fresh pastas daily. The restaurant is famed for its all-Italian wine list (expertly selected by Marzovilla), and the adjoining Enoteca offers lighter food and by-the-glass choices as well as a nightly happy hour from 3-8pm. I Trulli is a popular destination all-year round: diners can sit by the glow of the main room's rustic fireplace in winter, while in the warmer months are treated to the lush splendor of one of Manhattan's finest outdoor garden spaces.

You feel a great energy when you walk into the Glass House Tavern. The decor is soothing and warm and truly makes the customer feel welcome. The prompt, friendly service is delightful and the food is incredible. <br /><br />Executive Chef Craig Cupani has created a contemporary American menu that sets this restaurant apart from the other choices in the neighborhood. Fresh, seasonal ingredients are the emphasis here and the results are fantastic.

"Most of us in our Group ordered from the Pre-Fixe Luncheon menu, plus drinks and shared Appetizers. I had flank steak which was expertly prepared. Everyone was happy with their meal selections. My Cosmo with Kettle One was perfect! Our group had the upstairs area, which was great for our party. Our Server was top shelf - can't wait to return."

Restaurant X is located in Congers, New York. This charming country restaurant boasts lush landscaping and a free-form pond which adds ambiance during any season. Restaurant X offers a variety of rooms, each with its own feel. Close to the entrance is the Bully Boy Bar and adjoining lounge, where dinner is served alongside a roaring fire.

"We made a reservation during Restaurant Week. The food and service were top notch. The butternut squash risotto and pork tenderloins were excellent. For dessert, I had the carrot cake which was great. A small macaroon was for each guest was on the house. We will be back."

Manhattan sophistication meets comfort at Lexington Brass, a 110-seat neighborhood eatery located on the ground level of the luxury Hersha Group hotel, Hyatt 48Lex. A fresh, locally sourced menu features traditional American cuisine, while the social setting, sensible prices and gracious service foster a sense of familiarity among patrons, making Lexington Brass both a Midtown destination and a neighborhood staple.
