The Library at The Public is an Astor-era lounge tucked away in the mezzanine level of The Public Theater's new downtown home at Astor Place serving classic and inspired cocktails, wine, and Chef Andrew Carmellini's eclectic American menu sourcing local ingredients and New York influence.

"I met a group of friends here for dinner Friday night during restaurant week. The food was amazing, of special note were the shrimp tacos and the pork chop. The drinks were also special, and the atmosphere was aided by a bustling bar adjacent to the dining room. I wouldn't hesitate returning for another meal."

Nobu Next Door, which opened as an extension of the original Nobu in 1998, has taken on a life of its own. Its menu mirrors Nobu New York's and offers Nobu To Go. With its late night dining and music, Nobu Next Door tends to draw a more spirited crowd. The restaurant satisfies spontaneous diners who need the Nobu fix, but didn’t plan ahead, by offering first come, first serve table seating between the hours of 7:00pm and 9:00pm. Nobu Next Door received a three star review from The New York Times.<br /><br />Designed by architect David Rockwell, Nobu Next Door evokes the Japanese seaside: Japanese fishing nets hang from the ceiling and a wall made of nori (Japanese seaweed) blankets the entrance. The large display of lit sake bottles serves as a classic accompaniment to Japanese food. The atmosphere buzzes with the same energy and excitement as Nobu while maintaining an identity of its own.

"Brunch at Nobu Next Door during restaurant week was amazing. The chicken and waffles were exceptional, and my girlfriend's sushi assortment was incredibly fresh and tasty! Adding a few sake-cocktails to the mix truly made for a lovely afternoon."

Chef Luke Wallace prepares seasonal inspired dishes at Tom Colicchio’s casual Flatiron restaurant. The menu features a wide variety of small & large plates from Snacks, House-Made Charcuterie, Salumi, Artisanal Cheeses, Salads as well as Handmade Pastas, all expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The rustic and comfortable dining room lends itself to a quick lunch where guests can try our Croque Monsieur, a full dinner of Choucroute Garnie and Ricotta Ravioli, or a snack of Pecorino Arancini and East Coast Oysters. We are also serving a soul-satisfying brunch with dishes like Pork Scrapple & Eggs and our Applewood Smoked Salmon prepared in-house. Be sure to save room for Pastry Chef, Abby Swain’s creations including her take on the S’mores Tart.

"CraftBar makes a great restaurant week lunch! The menu has no shortage of options, both appetizers (the risotto balls and the beet salad) were amazing. As were the entrees, (Burger and the Bolognese). The desserts were great as well! Also noteworthy was the service; fast, friendly, and efficient. It was a great meal!"
