Acclaimed restaurateur Stephen Starr, of Buddakan and Morimoto, brings casual elegance to the New-York Historical Society with Caffè Storico (Italian for “historic”). <br /> <br />Chef Matthew Oetting’s menu features Italian cuisine rooted in tradition yet refined with modern technique and seasonality. The handmade artisanal pastas are not to be missed. An all-Italian wine list with over fifty labels, twenty of which are available by the glass, accompanies a full bar.<br /> <br />The 74-seat dining destination is located in the newly renovated iconic Central Park West institution.

This Old Chelsea food hall is a New York original. The Red Cat's combination of come-as-you-are sensibilities and straightforward, satisfying, and occasionally irreverent cuisine instantly establish the restaurant as a favorite with New York diners. Andy Xu runs the kitchen that's become famous for such whimsical creations as Reuben Wontons with Red Cabbage Slaw and Pan Roasted Cod with Flageolets, Moroccan Olives, Oranges and Basil Oil. Such dishes only add to the restaurant's mystique as a place for all seasons, styles and spirits. As Frank Bruni wrote in the New York Times "The Red Cat feels vaguely colonial and tavern like, except when it feels downtown-gallery cool, and apart from those moments when it feels modestly and eclectically elegant." <br /><BR><br> <br />If you are unable to book online, please call us directly and we will do our best to accommodate you. <br /><BR><br>

The West Bank Cafe has been serving exceptional American Fare to NYC theatre patrons as well as performers for over 30 years. Complementing the food is an award-winning California-focused wine list and a comfortable interior that includes the downstairs Laurie Beechman Theater, an 80-seat performance and private party space.

"Always a good theater district choice for decent, standard fare, and a relative quiet ambiance where you can actually have a pre or post-theater conversation. Service is typically friendly and efficient, except for the hostess who was not at the entrance greeting arrivals (it was only 9 p.m. on a Friday), but instead sitting at a nearby table having dinner. She seemed annoyed that she had to get up to seat us, not exactly the warmest of welcomes but it didn't spoil an otherwise enjoyable evening."
