"Dinner at this jewel-like restaurant has been described as the “ultimate level of culinary enlightenment” stated the Asbury Park Press. Serenade serves contemporary French cuisine created by the collaborated efforts of James and Nancy Laird. Come visit this beautiful restaurant located in the picturesque town of Chatham, New Jersey."

"The Gnocchi appetizer and the Turkey main course were cooked to perfection, especially when paired with the Corton Grand Cru. As usual, we had a wonderful meal at Serenade."

"Hands-down, the best Lebanese restaurant in NYC. Fantastic surroundings, excellent food and attentive service make for a memorable dining experience. Don't miss the Kibbe Nayeh, the Kafta with Cherries and the Armenian-influenced dishes."

Experience the new db bistro moderne! Chef Daniel Boulud's contemporary French bistro has undergone a complete renovation. With the addition of a handsome new cocktail bar, and a newly-crafted menu db bistro serves updated bistro classics with a modern twist and market-driven French-American cuisine. <br /> <br />Located one block East of Times Square, db bistro is the perfect spot for pre- and post-theater dining, a Midtown business lunch or breakfast 'L'Express' of cappuccino and viennoisserie at the bar. A $48 pre-theater prix-fixe dinner menu is available in addition to a full a la carte menu. The Lunch Prix Fixe menu will have you back to your desk or off to a matinee quickly and affordably.<br /><br />db is happy to host large parties and private events from 14-165 guests.

"db Bistro moderne seems to have lost its touch. We had lunch last Sunday and were unimpressed by the lack of flavors in the classic dishes we have enjoyed there for many years, including the Burger (looked nice but no flavor), the Blanquette de Veau (dry and underwhelming), the beet salad with quinoa (completely "confused" in terms of flavors), etc. A real disappointment as this has been one of our favorite bistros in the City. To make matters worse, the service was mediocre at best and could have been at any NYC diner. Mr Boulud, please fix it. We want our old Bistro moderne back!"
