Avra Estiatorio is a restaurant that transports you to the Greece of your imagination. The sky is vivid blue and the air is drenched with sunlight and the aroma of freshly caught fish grilling over an open fire.

Owner Jacques Loupiac presents a taste of Provence at La Panetiere. The cuisine is contemporary french, and the dishes change with the season reflecting upon products purchased from market-gardeners, fishermen, free-range poultry farmers, and other purveyors who deserve the respect of their authentic products.

Gallo Nero is the new hidden gem of Hell's Kitchen. Located on 44th Street, between 9th & 10th Avenues, Gallo Nero has the great promise of becoming a new breed of tratoria with an exceptional wine selection. It's rustic feel is in tune with the wine and the friendly service only makes the place a very lovely spot, perfect for romantic dinners all the way to friendly reunions. The menu consists of a variety of items that are made to compliment every kind of taste, starting with cold cuts, Crostini, Bruschetta and cheese selections, all the way to Lamb Shank, Gnocchi and Panini. To top it all off the wines are picked from the special small vineyards in Italy, bringing a unique flavor to the area that will turn anyone into a wine lover.

"It's a shame that I can't recommend Gallo Nero, or go back there. It's tiny, and so noisy that you cannot carry on a conversation without almost yelling -- the deafening noise level is made worse by the continual playing of loud, unnecessary background music -- and it's so dark at the tables that you literally can't read the menu (we had to keep using the flashlight app on our cell phones). It's silly, because these flaws are easily fixed, but I guess they just don't care. Food was excellent and service was good, but it's not worth the unpleasant noise and darkness."

"Special occasion - the staff was warm and gracious -- food was fabulous -- interior is delightful -- only downside is that tables are close and noise level is VERY high. Veal chop with cream sauce and mushrooms was out of this world."
