"I am not a vegan--not even a vegetarian--yet Gobo is a favorite place, for its ambience and satisfying, novel food. When I have a veg client or friend to take out, it always seals the deal. I love seeing their eyes light up when they realize they can order anything on the extensive menu, and it is all tasty and lovely."

New York’s favorite fish house serves up classic seafood specialties in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Danny Abrams’ flagship Mermaid Inn, dubbed an inexpensive version of Le Bernardin by New York Magazine -- features a cozy, secluded garden in back, sidewalk café in the front and a dining room that’s always buzzing. The cuisine and the décor are sure to bring back your favorite memories of New England. Belly up to the bar and wash down some ice cold oysters with expertly crafted cocktails, or drop by between 5:30 – 7:00pm for Happy Hour & a Half - dollar oysters, drink specials, and a snack menu in the entire restaurant. And if you love wine, The Mermaid’s well selected wine list means you’ll find some gems and some splurges that won’t break the bank.

"Reliably good food and festive atmosphere in a neighborhood full of meh and sub-meh restaurants...no wonder it is still around. The garden is great if you can get in, but even indoors feels like a little New England vacay, with high-quality seafood and a varied menu. If you don't feel like a slab o' fish, make a meal of appetizers and you'll be more than satisfied. Recommend: fish tacos, shrimp sliders, and oysters, oysters, oysters."

Located in one of the oldest New York City spots, on the corner of Peck Slip and Water Street, Acqua is an authentic Italian restaurant. It is a very cozy place with traditional Italian cuisine contained a large diversity of dishes based on the best recipes taken from all parts of Italy from North to South. <br /> Executive chef Ivan Beacco and his team try their best to give New Yorkers an authentic experience. The wine list spans over 100 bottles, all from small boutique Italian vintners. From 12pm to 11pm, you can enjoy your time with a glass of Pinot Noir, Soave, and other delicious wine along with very inspired antipasti, seafood dishes and authentic pastas. This place is definitely worth your attention.

Opened in 1994, Nicola Marzovilla's warm and welcoming restaurant has been a favorite for more than 18 years for those in search of hearty, delicious Italian specialties. Its celebrated menu draws on the regional cuisine of the Marzovillas' homeland, Puglia. Nicola's mother, Dora, prepares hand-rolled fresh pastas daily. The restaurant is famed for its all-Italian wine list (expertly selected by Marzovilla), and the adjoining Enoteca offers lighter food and by-the-glass choices as well as a nightly happy hour from 3-8pm. I Trulli is a popular destination all-year round: diners can sit by the glow of the main room's rustic fireplace in winter, while in the warmer months are treated to the lush splendor of one of Manhattan's finest outdoor garden spaces.

"I hadn't visited in a long time but was happy to find I Trulli just as I remembered it: warm and welcoming, quiet enough for conversation, and presided over by a doting host. The garden has always been the attraction for me, but this time we savored the fireplace--and the great food. Appetizers, pastas, and fish all perfectly done, generously portioned, and lovingly served. We won't wait so long this time for a return visit."
