Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. Step into Wildfire, a steak and chophouse with the aura of a 1940's dinner club. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for an evening with friends or just the two of you. So order a martini, listen to the music and prepare your appetite for some of the most delicious American cuisine you'll find anywhere.

"We had a very good meal at Wildfire on a recent trip to DC. My expectations were low as it is a chain but we were pleasantly surprised. The steaks and sides were very well prepared and the service attentive and professional. We would have no hesitation about dining at Wildfire again."

"We dined at Filomena's on a recent trip to DC. The restaurant was very busy and very loud but the service was attentive and friendly. The portions were huge and very well prepared. A great evening overall."

The Dutch is an American restaurant, bar and oyster room inspired by local cafes, country inns, corner taverns, neighborhood bistros, seaside shacks, roadside joints and the same mix of cultural influences that make New York City great. Award-winning Chef Andrew Carmellini's roots-inspired American menu features fresh fish and shellfish, choice meats, local produce and the best of what's around.

"We had brunch at The Dutch in August 2014. It was our first time there and it was a great experience. We were ten to fifteen minutes late for our reservation and the hostess was generous and accommodating. We were seated quickly and within seconds had a waiter at our table. The service was a notch above spectacular. Attentive, pleasant and accommodating. The food was absolutely yummy....I had the deconstructed Eggs Benny and my daughter had the Dutch burger. Both were very good but the burger was outstanding. This will be a brunch 'go to' when we are lucky enough to find ourselves in NYC."

"We went to Balthazar for breakfast on a recent trip to NYC. The service was excellent, the food very good and the ambience matched the city and the neighbourhood....energetic and lively. Balthazar is a 'go to'. We will certainly be back."

Located at the Mercer Hotel, Mercer Kitchen brings a chic, sophisticated vibe to the heart of SoHo. When Mercer Kitchen opened in 1998, it immediately became a destination for New Yorkers, celebrities, and tourists. Situated in the basement of a historic building constructed in the 1800s, the… restaurant was designed by Christian Liaigre as a combination of industrial and classic modernism. Chef Jean-Georges’ American menu features market-driven, seasonal ingredients prepared in a simple yet elegant style, with favorites like the Tuna Spring Roll, Steamed Shrimp Salad, wood-fired pizzas, and classic Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake. There is an open kitchen, where guests can sit back and watch the show.

"Mercer's Kitchen is a go to for us each time we visit NYC and our latest visit was no exception. The food was fantastic (in my opinion the best burger in NYC) and the service efficient and pleasant. Consistently good and well worth the 'go to every time we visit' status....."

From the team behind The Stanton Social comes Beauty & Essex, a grand 10,000 square foot restaurant, bar, & lounge in the heart of the lower east side.<br><br><br />The atmosphere of the space is both grand and intimate, moody and effervescent. Various rooms for lounging and dining unfold on two floors, like a large turn-of-the-century townhouse. Each room has its own unique elements that celebrate timeless jewelry designs and upscale jewelry stores.<br><br><br />The cuisine is multi-ethnic in inspiration, casually elegant, and designed for sharing at the table among friends and family. Where the Stanton Social"s menu is Chef Chris Santos' take on cocktail party classics and street foods from across the globe, Beauty & Essex is rooted in a bold bistro direction focusing on the reinvention of modern family style dining that is both whimsical and sophisticated.
