Dear Friends<br /><br />After 12 years at Il Gattopardo’s original location, is with joy that we welcome you to The Rockefeller Townhouses, our new home at 13-15 West 54th Street. In the new house, Il Gattopardo gains an intimate bar space and a marvelous private event room with capacity up to 120 seats. The main dining room has been designed to translate our vision of comfort, modernity, but above all, simplicity, and to keep alive Il Gattopardo’s understated elegance. <br /><br />IL GATTOPARDO family is committed to producing top quality Southern Italian gastronomy, to the use of authentic ingredients, and to keeping the tradition of Italian culture and hospitality vibrant and passionate.<br /><br />Be well, keep in touch, and buon appetito!<br /><br />Gianfranco & Paula<br />

"Better than ever, in new location. Try to always get a quiet table all the way in the back and around to the left.
Parmigiana of zucchini with smoked mozzarella, tomato sauce and basil; ravioli of pheasant and porcini mushrooms in tomato and majoram sauce; “mangalitsa” pork chop, grilled with Brussels sprouts and pancetta; Cassata Sicilian style garnished with dark chocolate sauce

For a true Spanish dining experience, visit Andanada. Our two-time, two-star Michelin chef, Manuel Berganza, turns traditional Spanish dishes into works of art, all while remaining true to the flavors of Spain.

"We got a few small plates: meatballs in squid ink and crispy squid: OK, but I couldn't taste the black ink.
croquettes. Roasted eggplant was delicious. Mussel croquettes with saffron emulsion and cilantro was delicious. White asparagus was OK but too cold--should have been taken out of the fridge earlier. Octopus seasoned with olive oil and pimienton de vera served under mashed potato puree was only OK.

"I had lobster bisque, which tasted more like cream with tomato sauce than lobster, even with the bits of lobster floating. The pork shoulder, though, was quite good. The choice in wine buy the glass was better than it had been previously."

Lafayette is an everyday French restaurant conducting the spirit of French dining anew in downtown Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood. Open morning, noon and night, this grand café and bakery is dedicated to Chef Andrew Carmellini's market-driven bistro cooking in a timeless hallmark setting. Our light-flushed dining room features soaring arched windows overlooking the NoHo streetscapes and a lively rotisserie bar. Our corner boulangerie-patisserie is open all hours offering artisanal breads, croissants, Stumptown coffee drinks, a light breakfast or lunch and a host of confections. In warm weather months, our sidewalk cafe opens daily for open air lunch, brunch and dinner service.

"ate here 2014 03 05 with Tao-Wen. We shared the house pate, which was good, though not great; black fettuccine, cuttlefish, ruby shrimp, clams & chorizo, which was delicious; and a special, the pork belly wrapped around pork loin in a delicious broth with onions, pears, and other veges. The pasta and pork dishes were very rich--emphasis on butter. We had the apple tart to share with prune/armagnac ice cream instead of the creme fraiche, and that was delicious, actually the best dish. I had the Bandol 2008 wine by the glass. The atmosphere allows for a sense of privacy because of the distance between tables, and it’s conducive to conversation."

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.

"I had the sunchoke soup, which was delicious. I then had the rack of lamb, which may be the best I've ever had--very tender and tasty and cooked perfectly. The wines by the glass were inadequate as were the half bottles. Only one Bordeaux, a st. emission, which we drank, but it wasn't interesting. They had only one Cabernet Sauvignon by the glass, a California one for $40!!!"

"I had kale salad, which was tough and had too much vinegar. The kale should have been massaged. I also had the cast iron steak, which was quite good."

Nougatine is the more casual sister of Jean-Georges, with a very lively bar scene at night. The restaurant attracts a mix of celebrities, socialites, and movers and shakers in the business world. Adjacent to the formal Jean-Georges dining room, Nougatine serves the signature and seasonal dishes of Chef Jean-Georges for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 365 days a year. The menu is more casual than that offered at Jean-Georges but still market driven, utilizing only the freshest and finest ingredients. In addition to providing gorgeous views of Central Park, the newly renovated dining room by Thomas Juul-Hansen features a bustling, immaculate open kitchen. Tones of brown and cream mingle to create an elegant space that is soothing by day and exciting by night. Nougatine offers a prix-fixe lunch menu Monday through Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. Pre- and post-theater prix-fixe menus are available Sunday through Friday from 5:30 to 6 p.m., and from 10 to 11 p.m.

"The roasted fennel appetizer was delicious. The shared 28 day aged ribeye was a failure. First, it didn't taste aged; second, it was the leanest ribeye I've ever had; third, it was, as a result of these points, fairly tasteless; it had a clean taste to go along with its clean, fatless look. How can a ribeye not have any fat? This one had very very little fat. My dinner partner who shared the plate with me completely agreed with this assessment.
There should be more reasonably priced bottles of wine on the list, and there should be more options for wine by the glass. Tehre was only one bordeaux by the glass, which I had and was not impressed with."

The West Bank Cafe has been serving exceptional American Fare to NYC theatre patrons as well as performers for over 30 years. Complementing the food is an award-winning California-focused wine list and a comfortable interior that includes the downstairs Laurie Beechman Theater, an 80-seat performance and private party space.

Persepolis Is a Persian/ Mediterranean restaurant with a dynamic atmosphere and 20 years of experience! The restaurant is famous for verity of kebabs and refreshing salads and gently spiced grilled meats. The yogurt and cucumber blended with a little mint is made exceedingly well and is an ideal cool compliment to Persepolis’ rounds of Pita & Barbari bread. Our kebabs which include moist and delicious salmon or saffron chicken are served without heavy sauces. Instead they are served with a choice of four rices including an intriguing blend of Basmati rice and marinated sour cherries. Our personalized wine list truly compliments our cuisine. We also offer a full classic bar. <br />We look forward to seeing you!

Incognito offers an oasis of elegant, modern dining. With a well balanced menu and wine list, from our thin crust pizzas, fresh pastas to local meats and fish. For lunch there is a 2 course Fixe Prix, open sandwiches and soup. Open all day, lunch can be enjoyed till 4:00pm. The main menu has many delicious options from traditional dishes such as lasagna to our fennel and mushroom pizza. From mussels to meatballs, beef carpaccio to grilled calamari, keep it light or go for our rich melanzane with smoked mozzarella or our fillet mignon with black peppercorn sauce. Here there is something for everyone, from the rushed crowds of NYC to the dedicated foodie. Our concept is to create fresh homemade dishes using the best ingredient. Mixing old world glamour with a modern twist, incognito is great for both everyday dining and special occasions.
