"went with a group of 9 on a friday night - and everything was delightful! it is a big space, but there is lots of nooks and crannies to keep it intmate. warm greeting, a great table, prosecco appeared like magic, good guidance on sahrable appetizers (pizza's are a must!). even with 9 people. food all arrived at the same time and hot! standouts were the steaks, the pappardelle with eggplant parm, chicken milanese. desserts come with homemade whipped cream! a definate great additions to the neighborhood."

"as soon as you entter, you know this is not your typical times square tourist spot. decor is super opulent art deco (a little unexpected from a place called hunt & fish) - but plenty of seating arrangements for all size groups. the focus on gimlets is a fun cocktail gimmick. impressive beer list. others drinks all interesting. popovers are delightful! fish very well represented - raw bar, in salads, appetizers and entrees. steak options are abundant (but pricey). other entrees good. wild boar ragu is rich and perfect for winter. side standouts are the brussel sprouts and truffle tater tots (but that truffle sauce should be available for everything). pricey, but worth a visit."

"what was good here did not make up for the too crowded tabels and the very loud crowd. interesting cocktails and wines by the glass. plenty of good choices for food and the food is very good (wings, tempura string beans, fish & chips and steak all good). staff is trying their best. the sister wine bar upstairs is a much better choice."

With a career spanning across two continents and twenty seven years, Chef Fabio has created an Italian culinary haven known as Fabio's Restaurant located at 214 East 52nd St. Chef Fabio will make sure you have the ultimate dining experience.<br /><br />Throughout his formative years in Rome, Italy and in NY, he has perfected signature dishes such as FETTUCINE alla Fabio, made with porcini mushrooms and a delicate sauce that enhances the woody taste of the mushroom without overpowering the palate, and RISOTTO Crema di scampi, made with the freshest fish and lightest of creams.<br /><br />Fabio personally selects his produce and vegetables directly from the market daily, as he wants to insure top quality and freshness of all his ingredients. The same applies to the pasta dishes - all are homemade and great attention is paid to preparation and detail. He will also go out of his way to prepare dishes upon request.

Bocca Di Bacco is a New York City Restaurant Group establishment from dynamic restaurateur and New York native Robert Malta, who owns nearly a dozen restaurants throughout the city. “I’ve been in the business 25 years,” Malta says. “I opened the first Bocca Di Bacco in Hell’s Kitchen in 2007 and it quickly became a neighborhood favorite. The Chelsea location is an evolution of what we’ve been offering. There are new menu items, and a more refined look and feel, but it’s still a great spot for the neighborhood any night of the week.”

"a restaurant in the corner of a shopping plaza - lots of great choices - both for food and wines by the glass. if you were not told, you would not realize the entrees were all under 500 calories. butternut squash soup was the star dish."

Almond blends farm-to-table culture in a vibrant, comfortable atmosphere. <br /><br />Co-owner and Executive Chef Jason Weiner creates seasonal & daily menus that are driven by market-fresh ingredients. Almond's local & sustainable fish offerings are illuminated through an open raw bar. Classic Almond dishes, beloved at Almond's sister restaurants (Almond Bridgehampton & Almond Tribeca), are highlighted with Brussels Sprouts Two-Ways and Steak Frites, amongst others. Unique to the menu is a selection of "Small Things," masterfully conceived dishes that can be enjoyed in a few bites that range from Roasted Chickpeas to Lobster Sausage. <br /><br />The wine list, handpicked by co-owner Eric Lemonides, offers an affordable selection of wines. Specialty cocktails, NY craft beers, and raw bar selections, along with the entire menu, at the restaurant’s spacious 20-seat bar.<br />
