Masseria dei Vini (Masseria of Wines) is the new venture brought to you from the La Masseria Team. Restauranteur Pino Coladonato, Peppe Iuele and Enzo Ruggiero have teamed up again with Interior Designer Libby Langdon, bringing you a modern update version of "Masseria". In the region of Puglia, in South Italy, Masseria were Fortified Farmhouses, and many of them now have been transformed into Restaurants or Hotels. Executive Chef Pino Coladonato, native of Rutigliano (Bari), has created a menu that blends traditional with modern without overpowering one or the other. The Menu features typical dishes from Puglia, such as "Crudo", the Italian word for "Raw", made with fish and shellfish, a lot of fresh homemade pastas and different sizes and shapes of Ravioli. The menu also offers Gourmet Pizza Neapolitan style. The Restaurant will offer an extensive wine by the glass program and a large selection of wine bottles, mainly from Italy, but without ignoring the rest of the world.

"I have long been missing Puttanesca and my neighborhood prayers have been answered with this outpost of Masseria! The fried zucchini is a must and the eggplant and mozzarella appetizers are delicious as well. Service was fantastic and friendly! Ask for Vincenzo's section!"

Strip House Midtown at 44th Street brings all the Strip House signatures to a brand new bi-level space for lunch, dinner and private dining. Visit the new NYC location for a classic cocktail at the bar, or a full steakhouse experience. Experience the combination of charred cuts perfectly paired with decadent sides, in a siren red interior where old world glamour meets modern style and sophistication. Named a top steakhouse by Zagat and awarded four stars by Forbes, the namesake cut isn’t the only thing to marvel upon...walls are adorned with original Studio Manasse prints of 1930s burlesque stars.

"Great steak house experience. Cozy room with classy use of strip house theme- who knew that was possible?! Fabulous service and delicious food. The creamed corn- not something I usually order- is a must have, as are the strip house potatoes. The steaks are perfectly prepared. We had the bone in versions of the ribeye, strip and filet and were all very happy! If at all possible save room for the chocolate cake!"

One of America's most successful restaurants, this New York steakhouse opened in 1977 and has been a hit ever since. It is one of the most trafficked restaurants in New York City and among the most celebrated steakhouses in the world. Specializing in fresh seafood and lobster and assorted steaks and chops, Smith & Wollensky is well recognized for its healthy portions, seasoned service staff and pop Americana ambience. The painted wood exterior is dark forest green trim on sparkling white, with latticework trim. The elegant interior has turn-of-the-century appeal and design elements including shining brass, dark wood accents and polished wood floors. Adjacent to Smith & Wollensky's is Wollensky's Grill. The Grill (entrance on 49th St) is open from 11:30AM till 2:00AM but does not accept reservations.

"Great food but a terrible table. Waiters banging into my friend throughout the meal dampened the experience. Food is consistently good, with steaks and crab cakes being great. Wine list has a great variety with reasonable prices."

A midtown classic with sprawling views of the NYC. Located in the heart of Midtown, this steakhouse offers incredible service and great food in a beautiful three level space. Known for having one of the city's best wine lists and bar scenes, Del Frisco's is the perfect place for small groups and parties of up to 80.

"You won't get out of here for under 50 a person- even forlunch- without drinks. But if you are looking for a t5reat this place never disappoints. The busniess lunch, which is $35 is delicious and a perfect portion. the service is friendly, professional and personal. You feel like they are paying attention to you without being overwhelming. We actually had a problem with one of our meals and they apologzed and simply took it off the bill. Excellent handling of the situation when things go wrong is what sets a place apart in my mind and they were responsive and immediate. We will be back again (and again!) The bar scene at night is quite the scene if you want to be part of it sit downstairs, if not request a table upstairs."

"Carmine's is always crowded but I do not expect to wait 20 minutes for a table- when I have a reservation for a large group. That said, once seated it was an excellent experience with great service. Our waiter- Jim/James was a lively compliment to the experience for our guests visiting NY for the first time from overseas. The food was excellent and plentiful as always. Meatballs, Country Style Pasta, Chicken Marsala and Calamari for a real taste of NY. We must have heard the Happy Birthday song 50 times but other than that and the wait it was a wonderful evening in the heart of Times Square."
