"Been here three times over the years, and while all meals were good, every dish we ordered on this visit knocked it out of the park. The gnocchi was the favorite of the table, the polenta side dish was so good we ordered a second and my dorade was fantastic. Perla is clearly going from strength to strength..."

The intimate and chic 74-seat townhouse offers two experiences under one roof, allowing diners to frequent Greenwich Project for any occasion.

"Excellent food, fantastic veggie dishes. Our server was a little 'odd' and hovered a little, I think because they were waiting for us to leave to use the table for a four. But otherwise great dinner."

Established in 1920, The Waverly Inn was reopened in 2006 by Vanity Fair Editor-in-Chief Graydon Carter along with Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode (of the Maritime and Bowery Hotels) and Emil Varda. Tucked into the ground floors of two adjoining townhouses, the dining room's red booths, fireplaces and low amber lighting provide an attractive and cozy hangout for the city’s best and brightest. Chef Ashley Merriman’s menu features American classics alongside contemporary seasonal dishes using organic, local ingredients.

"I love this place. Not the first time I've been and it is consistently great. The gnocchi is fantastic - very rich though. We went the week between Christmas and New Year when the city was a little more quiet, and really enjoyed loitering in the bar area by the fire first, before moving to our table."

"For some reason the reviews for this place seemed a bit all over the place so I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm happy to report we had a fantastic meal, all the dishes were delicious, especially the brussel sprouts! Would highly recommend."

The sister restaurant to neighborhood favorite Battersby on Smith Street is owned by Chefs Joe Ogrodnek and Walker Stern who received Food and Wine's title of "Best New Chefs" for 2014. The menu reflects their culinary heritage and experience in restaurants such as Alain Ducasse at the Essex House, Blue Hill, and Gramercy Tavern. Diners may order from a four section a la carte menu or select a seven course tasting ($95).<br /><br />Dover expands on the warmth and intimacy of Battersby in an equally relaxed but more spacious setting. The wine list is largely old world sprinkled with new world highlights; cocktails are stellar.

"I wish I lived in Brooklyn just so I could eat out at Brooklyn restaurants every night. Yet another fantastic new spot, I had the steak tartare and cod, both were delicious. We had a table at 6.45 and it was really quiet when we arrived but as soon as it hit 8pm the entire place filled up - so if you're trying to get a reservation, try to go early!"

Marc Murphy teamed up with his wife Pamela Schein Murphy to open their first restaurant, Landmarc (Tribeca), in April 2004. It has since become a neighborhood favorite, serving contemporary bistro fare that blends French and Italian favorites with an award-winning wine list, all at reasonable prices, in a cutting-edge Tribeca setting.

"I can't believe it's taken me this long to eat here, what a find! Went with a friend who sometimes struggles to find options on the menu that she likes (whereas I'll eat anything). There were so many great dishes on the menu - I like that the dishes weren't over-engineered. Had the skirt steak and fries - delicious. I hadn't been before because I had always thought it was a bit pricey but seriously, that was great value for money. Oh and loved loved the rose sangria! I'll go back just for that!"

Please visit our website to learn more about The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges http://www.theinnatpoundridge.com/<br /><br />Chef Jean‑Georges introduces his latest venture, a casually elegant restaurant ensconced in the picturesque town of Pound Ridge, New York. Here, Jean‑Georges cultivates a truly seasonal, farm-to-table cuisine, with ingredients sourced from the Hudson Valley and New England, whenever possible. Constructed in 1833 as a residence and serving later as an inn, the building has been painstakingly renovated to preserve as many of the original materials as possible, including four working fireplaces. Thomas Juul-Hansen designed the restaurant’s interior with a modern yet rustic sensibility; zinc and marble accent stone and reclaimed wood. The restaurant’s lighting, artfully conceived by Hervé Descottes, employs paper shades and Edison fixtures to create warmth throughout.
