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.

"Still one of the best steakhouses in NYC, despite being part of a chain. The gratin potatoes and the trio of Filet Mignons are a sure bet and can't miss!"

Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House<br /><br />Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.<br /><br />The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere. For an intimate and unique experience, dinner aboard the private Parlour Cars is sure to be remembered. Formerly the private domain of the rich and famous, these beautifully refurbished, turn of the century railway cars are exquisitely complimented by the haute cuisine of Rod's esteemed Executive Chef.

"We love Rod's. Have been coming for years, and the food is consistently exceptional! It is definitely one of the best Steakhouses in the NJ/NY metro area. The Cowboy Steak and the NY Strip are our favorites, and eating it the Keller Family way is simply over the top! The only consistent problem is the lackluster service. Despite the service, we continue to return due to the Keller Family's hospitality, the lovely surroundings and the outstanding food."

"As a frequent diner at Almayass in Beirut, Lebanon I was not sure what to expect at the NYC location. A more modern look, even better service and the same exceptional Armenian-Lebanese food as in Beirut. It simply does not get better than Almayass as you will rediscover original twists to many traditional Lebanese dishes and discover superb new dishes including Borek, Sujuk with Quail eggs, Sweet and Sour Beef, etc. Don't miss this wonderful dining experience!"

Under the guidance of the Livanos family and Co-Owner Paul McLaughlin, Oceana has provided New Yorkers with an exceptional seafood destination since 1992. <br /><br />Oceana's a la carte menu, coupled with its convenient Midtown location, make it a perfect spot for a quick business lunch or pre-theater dinner. From the spectacular marble bar to the fresh lobsters and whole fish cooked to order, as well as a significant selection of prime meats, Executive Chef Ben Pollinger delivers a fresh, innovative and approachable menu.<br />Oceana has a 70 seat Cafe with a 18 seat marble bar. Great for lunch, after work cocktails & snacks, pre-theater dinner and post-theater desserts. An award winning international wine list with some 1000 selections. Spring and Summer bring a 75 seat outdoor dining area, private dining options include our Chef's table for 4, Wine Room for 18, and our Grand Salon for 80. <br />Please indicate in the Special Requests box if you will be attending Theater.

"Each time we go to Oceana, we are impressed by the level of freshness and quality of the fish, as well as the consistency in service and ambiance. Oceana is one of our favorite restaurants with a constantly updated menu. The Grilled Octopus and the General Tso's Lobster are two, of many, dishes not to miss!"

***** SEAFOOD GREEK RESTAURANT ***** Located in the Heart of Midtown, steps away from Grand Central Terminal. Ammos provides upscale, authentic cuisine from various regions of Greece. The menu features a wide array of mezedes and pristinely fresh seafood as well as whole grilled fish. Ammos is the Greek word for &quot;sand&quot; and the restaurant’s airy, open design, light woods and weathered stones conjure the sun-drenched atmosphere of the Greek islands.

New York’s new favorite wine bar is nestled just off Broadway and ideal for any time of day. With a delectable small and large plates menu of regional American, coupled with creative cocktails, and a wine program by Master Sommelier Emily Wines, NIOS is a destination not to be missed. Whether you’re going to the theater or looking to lounge and socialize over great wines in a warm and inviting environment, NIOS has something for everyone.

"Boulevard 572 is a consistently great place to dine and be merry. The excellent food, attentive service and wonderful ambiance were in perfect harmony on Christmas Eve. The 7 Fishes Feast was exceptional, as were the a-la-carte items. Don't miss a dining opportunity at this wonderful establishment."
