 Zoe
Zoe
Chef and owner Zoë Feigenbaum's light-filled restaurant is done in honeyed midcentury modern. The American menu also glances abroad: turkey rillettes, octopus with labne, harissa and olives, stuffed cabbage soup and tongue tacos. <br>Zoe's wine list looks toward old world style wines and is rounded out by a carefully selected list of Apertif and Digestif. <br> <br>Zoe takes weekend brunch seriously, (as any true New Yorker would) so get there early for the homemade sticky buns and buttermilk biscuits. A great spot for pre-movie oysters and bone-in ribeye steak (Landmark Sunshine Theater is around the corner) or a quiet dinner with friends. Large parties and groups can be seated along the long banquette seating. Zoe is also a great choice for those who like to dine at the bar- Zoe's counter is specifically designed for dining and is a great place to enjoy their $1 Oyster Happy Hour and a half from 5:30-7:00 Monday-Saturday.

Nestled away on winding Gold Street in Manhattan's venerable Financial District, Giardino D'Oro is indeed a golden garden as its name translates. All that is charming about Italy comes to life as co-owners Benny Jakupaj and Nick Vuli welcome even newcomers with open arms. At Giardino D'Oro, food is indeed art with the fine Italian cuisine replete with antipasti, fresh rolled pastas, exquisite meat and seafood dishes, mouth-watering desserts, and an extensive wine list. Attentive yet discreet service in an intimate setting with strains of Sinatra softly crooning in the background set the scene for power lunches as well as romance.
