New York’s favorite fish house serves up classic seafood specialties in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Danny Abrams’ flagship Mermaid Inn, dubbed an inexpensive version of Le Bernardin by New York Magazine -- features a cozy, secluded garden in back, sidewalk café in the front and a dining room that’s always buzzing. The cuisine and the décor are sure to bring back your favorite memories of New England. Belly up to the bar and wash down some ice cold oysters with expertly crafted cocktails, or drop by between 5:30 – 7:00pm for Happy Hour & a Half - dollar oysters, drink specials, and a snack menu in the entire restaurant. And if you love wine, The Mermaid’s well selected wine list means you’ll find some gems and some splurges that won’t break the bank.

At Barbone, we believe in using organic and local ingredients, bursting with flavors, combining them into the most delicious Italian soul food. <br />We have an extensive wine list and try to introduce rare and unusual grapes to our customers. In addition to great wine selection Barbone has full bar.<br /><br />At Barbone, you're family, and we treat you as family.

"The menu offers so many delicious options...all I can say is GO FOR THE TASTING MENU! Not only do they offer choices - yes! You can select the dishes you want - but the entire table isn't required to eat the same items, so each diner can create a custom tasting menu of his or her choosing.
The rest of it - the rustic decor, gruff and uneven service, the lack of reasonably priced wines on the menu - well, Barbone is a work in progress. Go and enjoy!

Named after the spectacular port city on the Mediterranean’s Turquoise coast, Bodrum breathes some fresh air into the NYC’s Upper West Side with an ambitious, unique menu of Mediterranean food. With Turkish, Greek, Lebanese, French & Italian culinary influences (just to name a few), Bodrum places brick oven pizza next to mezzes, kebabs next to fish, finding a common thread that unifies Mediterranean cuisines.

"We have been to Bodrum twice..once for a late brunch, recently for Sunday dinner. What a great little spot! The food is delicious, fresh and generous potions. The service is very attentive: anytime I looked around for more than 20 seconds, a server came over to see what I needed. I also love the bread and olive oil they serve. I guess everyone knows how good this place is because it's hard I score a table on the spur of the moment -- so make a reservation!"

Da Rosina, well established since 1993, is the premier Italian restaurant ideally located in the heart of the Theatre District. On Restaurant Row, Da Rosina is minutes from Times Square, the Lincoln Tunnel, and all major hotels. <br><br>The room is invitingly decorated with a lovely mural and Roman columns. Tables are comfortably spaced allowing the waiters to serve you exquisite Italian fare at very moderate prices. <br><br>Da Rosina is a theatre lover’s dream. Because of the proximity to all the major theaters and our ability to prepare delicious Italian cuisine promptly before curtain time, Da Rosina is perfect for dining before attending the theater. Of course, if you prefer a more leisurely meal, please make your reservation during showtime or join us after the theater! <br>

"The staff are welcoming, cheerful and know exactly how to pace the meal so you can enjoy dinner without feeling rushed. Fried zucchini is a good shared appetizer; they split the Caesar salad to two plates without any problem. Pesto gnocchi and salmon were solid main dishes. Go and enjoy it before your show!"

"The waiter was attentive and helpful, gave good recommendations. The trio of dips to start was flavorful and yummy! Needed more flatbread to go with it. Eggs Benedict were very good, I recommend the hollandaise sauce on the side. The atmosphere was lively, as other patrons were celebrating birthdays, taking pics and chatting. It's not the kind of place for a private, intimate meal, but it's not too noisy either. And the Sinatra tunes in the background were fun. Definitely will be back!"
