Gradisca is an authentic Italian restaurant with sexy, vibrant ambiance and genuine hospitality. Committed to offering the most authentic Italian dining experience outside of Italy since the opening in the fall of 2000, Gradisca captures indeed all the charm and warmth of a true trattoria. <br />The menu is classic Italian with a modern twist, using the freshest organic and local ingredients possible, and featuring fresh pastas hand-crafted daily. The Wine Spectator-awarded wine list is all Italian and includes more than one hundred wines from all of the twenty regions of Italy.<br />As Eric Asimov of the New York Times wrote soon after its debut, "Gradisca may be of the moment, but its appeal is timeless."<br />

"I'm not in this area often but if I was I'd eat here a LOT. Great spot, had the mini meatballs to start (delicious) and the tuna steak as main (great portion size, seared perfectly). My fellow diners' lamb and duck also looked great. Will go back!"

The Musket Room brings the spirit of New Zealand and the country’s diverse cuisine to Manhattan’s Nolita neighborhood.

"Went on a weekday during one of those really cold January days - I imagine it gets really packed at the weekend. Delicious food, lovely décor, glad we went and would recommend. My only complaint is that my sparkling water I ordered at the bar while our table was being set up cost me $6. That is steep, even for manhattan! And the bartender lady wasn't particularly attentive, she was a little too busy checking herself out in the mirror. Luckily our waiter was super friendly and we had good service at the table."

"I lived in Spain for 10 years and have never had Pan Con Tomate this good! Great neighborhood spot, delicious dishes, hard to get a table because it's always so busy, but worth trying to get that booking! We were on time but our table wasn't ready so they suggested we have a drink at the bar next door (owned by same people) - Bar Jamon. I'd have preferred to have been seated straight away but the manager of the bar was great, was helpful with the wine choices, and when we'd waited a little while they even brought over a starter free of charge. That's better treatment than a LOT of restaurants in manhattan! My only minor complaint is that it's so tiny that the tables are really pretty squished together."

Since first opening its doors in 1984, Gotham Bar and Grill has epitomized New York City dining at its finest, serving Executive Chef Alfred Portale's sublime and refreshingly accessible Contemporary American Cuisine in a dining room that is consistently packed with sophisticated diners from all over the country and the world. One of the secrets of Gotham's success is that it is an institution that has never become institutional. The unparalleled quality of the food and service are constants, but the rest of the Gotham experience is constantly updated to keep the restaurant feeling as fresh as the day it opened. New menu items are introduced each season, the wine list is always evolving, and the dining room is regularly revamped. Gotham Bar and Grill has been honored as Most Outstanding Restaurant in the nation by the James Beard Foundation, which named Chef/Owner Alfred Portale Most Outstanding Chef in the nation for 2006.

"Been on the list to try for years and recently went to Gotham with my husband for our 10 yr anniversary of when we first met. The food was very very good but what really made the difference for us was the service. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and helped us choose some fantastic wines. He actually listened to what kind of wines we liked and even went to check on one bottle he didn't know as well, before giving us a great recommendation. I would also recommend to anyone eating here to try the tortellini starter, it was fantastic."

"At first glance at the menu, I was really struggling with what I would have - nothing was jumping out at me. After a useful discussion with the waitress about how some of the dishes were prepared we settled on the chicken and egg and jonny cakes with a few starters and vegetables. Everything was absolutely delicious, the boiled egg starter was so unusual, light and tasty.
This place has the look and feel of quite a few places downtown but the originality of the menu sets it apart. My one complaint is it's pretty expensive.
