Zio Ristorante, offers dishes influenced by flavors of the Mediterranean as well as seasonality. Lunch includes paninis and grilled pizza specialties, from a traditional Caprese, to a Crudo topped with prosciutto, stracchino cheese and arugula. Chef Max always uses the freshest ingredients and builds his menu around the seasons. Homemade pappardelle with lamb ragu & a glass of red wine will nicely round out the meal. A selection of meat and fish entrees will remain as choices as well. The dinner menu is organized by antipasti, soups/fresh salads, pizzas, pastas, as well as a tantalizing selection of meat and fish dishes. Signature dishes to start include the Riso al Salto, a crunchy saffron risotto cake, bone marrow, and gremolata sauce, to the Polipo e Panelle, a grilled octopus, with chickpea cake and chicory. The majority of our pastas are fresh made on premise. Please visit our web site for more...

"We took clients here for drinks and appetizers. We ordered the Brussel sprouts, salmon tartare, ricotta and fries, all of which were amazing. Even ordered seconds of the salmon and Brussel sprouts! Cocktails were all great and the staff was friendly. We will definitely be going back."

Located at 32 East 21st Street in Manhattan’s vibrant Flatiron District, Harding’s offers a selection of artisanal American cuisine and craft spirits in a chic and rustic setting. With an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, Executive Chef Ariel Fox’s inspired menu fuses diverse West Coast influences with punches of Americana. Harding’s also offers an extensive American beer and wine menu, as well as an array of classic cocktails created by the restaurant’s expert mixologists. Exposed brick walls, antique mirrors, vintage chandeliers, and an oversized, century-old American flag evoke an air of nostalgia in this two-level landmark building.

"We wanted to like this place, but everything was just mediocre at best from the service, to the drinks to the food. The place has a good vibe and the bar scene seems pretty cool but as for dinner we will not be going back."

Serafina takes a very honest approach to Northern Italian food with only the highest quality ingredients. Serafina's Fabulous Pizza delights diners with a simplicity of recipe execution combined with creative and original Italian dishes.

"I have dined at Besito numerous times and it is always fantastic. Excellent guacamole! This time I had the Ensalada de Salmon and it was amazing. A good sized portion of pistachio crusted salmon on top of a spinach salad. The Besito margaritas are a MUST! Will definitely be back soon!"
