Abigael's on Broadway is a casually elegant, two level restaurant graciously accommodating up to three hundred and fifty guests. The menu offers an array of globally eclectic American fare, Latin comfort foods and Sushi & Pan Asian specialties that are surprisingly, deliciously Kosher. Our culinary philosophy is simple. We believe our guests' desire for a superb dining experience should be met with creativity and passion. With award-winning chef Jeff Nathan at the helm, highly acclaimed cuisine and elegant yet energetic atmosphere, it's easy to see why Abigael’s has become a destination restaurant for both our Kosher and non-Kosher guests alike.<br /><br /><br />

Casa Nonna's rustic Italian menu is a culmination of traditional Roman and Tuscan fare, with a focus on the freshest local and seasonal ingredients. Casa Nonna is warm and welcoming, authentic and thoroughly satisfying, with bold, pure flavors that are the hallmark of true Italian cuisine.

"I had no idea that such a big and well-appointed space could be found on a side street west of 8th Avenue. Good food, tastefully presented and plenty of it, with the exception of the cheese platter (which was a bit light on cheese for its price tag). We had a terrific time and the staff was quite friendly and attentive. I would definitely return."

"After years of enjoying a pre-theater lunch at this restaurant, I am sad to say that we have decided to cross it off our go-to list. The menu has evolved over the years, but not for the better. Everyone's favorite, pastrami sushi, has been banished in favor of less flavorful alternatives. Although the portion sizes of the salad and the cold and warm sushi were very disappointing, the veggie dish and the guacamole were plentiful -- and we were served a large quarter of an entire banana creme pie for dessert. One plus was the wonderful live music. The servers are friendly and helpful, as always. Still, our overall experience left a lot to be desired."

Just blocks away from Manhattan’s lively Union Square, our third New York location provides a warm and vibrant setting for our award-winning authentic Mexican cuisine. Designed by David Rockwell, the restaurant features architectural accents inspired by the late, famed Mexican architect, Luis Barragan. The internally illuminated electric-blue tiled water wall features cliff diver figurines and candles among the cascading water to separate the bar from the main dining room. Warm terracotta and yellow colors with hot pink accents are featured throughout the restaurant as well as traditional, one-of-a-kind Mexican crafts, fabrics and artwork. This combination creates the perfect backdrop for the festive atmosphere and innovative Mexican cuisine of Rosa Mexicano.

Berimbau Do Brasil serves a variety of authentic Brazilian food in an intimate, understated setting. The exposed brick, subtle lighting and joyful Brazilian music create a warm atmosphere. This cozy neighborhood gem offers a diverse menu of flavorful, elegantly plated traditional Brazilian dishes. <br /><br />Among the house favorites are our famous baked to order homemade Pao de Queijo( Cheese bread ), the Coxinha, a traditional chicken croquette and the Moqueca a Baiana, a brazilian seafood dish of Mahi- Mahi, Shrimp and Calamari in a coconut and palm oil broth, cooked and served at a clay pot with garlic rice and dende farofa and as dessert the must have Brigadeiro<br /><br />As you enter, you are greeted by the aromas of Brazilian spices radiating from the open kitchen. The staff is welcoming and professional, adding sincere hospitality to the delicious offerings and vibrant locale.
