Immersed in the heart of Manhattan, overlooking Fifth Avenue; Armani Ristorante lends itself to forge a new form of dining experience. The dazzling Italian trendy decor by Fuksas mingled with culinary creations communicate through each bite and each eyesight the personality and the beliefs of a distinctive philosophy that has changed the world through its innovative creations. In a place where vanguard cuisine marries traditional Italian cuisine our guests will savor the wonders of our exclusive dishes, and the impeccable care of our service absorbed in our unique surroundings that remains together elegant and relaxed.

<b>"One bite is enough to make you moan"<br />- <i>The New York Times</i></b><br /><br />Beloved by locals and a must-see destination for anyone who enjoys celebrity sightings, the Four Seasons is the restaurant <i>New York Magazine</i> named the "city's greatest dining room."<br /><br />Whether you're lunching poolside and enjoying the restaurant's deal-of-the-decade $59 prix fixe or looking for a delicious dinner destination that the <i>New York Times</i> raved "virtually defines American cooking," the Four Seasons offers something for every wallet. <br /><br />An only-in-Manhattan icon that <i>Zagat 2013</i> called "a calm oasis in throbbing Manhattan," the Four Seasons serves New American dishes, inspired by local fishermen and farmers.

"Been to Four Seasons many times and have enjoyed the dining experience. Our visit on the 14th was extremely disappointing. The food had no flavor (seared tuna) and the service was rushed and prices are ridiculously high for the quality of the food. Management has the attitude that everyone is a tourist and you have no plans to return."

At Bistro Vendome, our simple goal is to offer classic French recipes, some original, some with a modern twist, and to get our guests to fall in love with French cuisine all over again! Bistro Vendome is located in an elegant tri-level townhouse featuring a mezzanine with a skylight, overlooking an outdoor terrace and a stylish and welcoming bar. Our decor is authentic and cozy, with warm and earthy tones, designed for a perfect meal. We want everyone to feel at home in our home! Bon appétit!

Tiella serves modern Southern Italian cuisine. Its inventive and sophisticated menu is inspired by and elevates the home-cooked meals and peasant culinary traditions owners Giuseppe Castellano and Mario Coppola were raised with in Naples, Italy. Indeed, Tiella takes its name from the Neopolitan word for a cast-iron pan that is used for baking, grilling or frying meats, fish and breads. Our signature tiellas are pizza-like appetizers baked in our wood-fired oven. <br><br>Our philosophy is that the greatest meals require the finest ingredients. We import mozzarella di bufala, stracciatella and other fine cheeses, as well as risotto and prosciutto from Italy. Many other ingredients are sourced from local producers and farmers. To ensure that we serve the very best bread and pasta, we make our own. <br><br>The extensive wine list is comprised of Italian makers and complements the menu.

Morso is a culmination of a life in food and a passion for culinary excellence. Thirty years ago Pino Luongo, brought the then unfamiliar flavors and culture of authentic Tuscan cooking to New York City. With the essence of his homeland at heart and a truly original style of cooking, Luongo shaped the Italian menus and restaurants we consider as classics today. For Morso, his values and passion remain unchanged. Great, seasonal ingredients, skillfully prepared, shared with family and friends. Taking little bites of inspiration from all over Italy and the Mediterranean, combined with Pino's finest signature dishes; Morso represents a quintessential dining experience—authentic contemporary cooking in a vibrant and relaxed setting.

Felidia is located in a converted Brownstone on 58th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Opened in 1981 by Lidia Bastianich, Felidia offers a warm atmosphere where you can still find Lidia greeting guests and fans. <br /><br />Executive Chef Fortunato Nicotra has been with Felidia since 1996 and has brought an innovative touch to traditional ingredients and dishes from all the regions of Italy. <br /><br />Some of the restaurant's signature dishes include pear and fresh pecorino ravioli, veal shank ossobucco and limoncello tiramisu. <br />Felidia also offers a delicious three course price-fixed lunch, Monday - Friday for $29.50 per person, making the restaurant great for business lunches or just a nice afternoon treat. <br /><br />For parties of 8 or more, Felidia offers our group dining menu rather than the a la carte menu. The group dining menu is a four course menu and includes our most popular dishes and seasonal favorites for $95.00 per person. <br /><br />

Ethos—it is that which guides, a character, a moral. At Ethos, we very much adhere to the root of this word. Our menu guides you to the sun-drenched islands of Greece, as we embrace the rich character of its traditional dishes. We adhere to a strict moral code using only the highest quality extra virgin olive oil from Crete and fresh fish flown in daily from the Mediterranean. <br />Inside the modern ambiance there are threads of the traditional Greek eateries woven with the stylish island chic of Mykonos. We invite you to celebrate our centuries-old recipes, like fava from Santorini, all telling a new story of modern Greek cuisine with traditional ingredients taking inventive turns. <br />Prepared traditionally, re-imagined contemporary. our Ethos is an adherence to the purity of the sea and the sun, the freshness of our ingredients and the spirit of our beautiful culture. <br />“Ya mas” as we say in Greece, or “To Our Health”.<br />

"Ethos is very bad about recognizing your reservation. Most of the time they ignore their reservations, and if there is a table, they sit you. Obviously the opposite is true also. Very annoying, but their food is plentiful and good"

Cafe Joul, a French-American bistro, has been a perpetually popular staple in the Sutton Place neighborhood since the year 2000. A convivial, neighborhood atmosphere combined with the high-quality cuisine of chef-owner Bertrand Vernejoul have created a large devoted following.
