Located on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills, an upcoming Restaurant row is La Vigna Restaurant featuring Chef/Owner Giuseppe Vitale’s masterful interpretation of Italian cuisine. With the walls painted in the warm golden tones of an Italian villa and huge wood framed mirrors which expand the intimate space, it is perfect for smaller dinner parties. La Vigna also features a beautiful wooden bar with an excellent selection of Italian and Californian wines. Chef Vitale, born in Naples, was a chef for Lidia Bastianich for many years, learning the mastery of her techniques at Felidia, Becco and her original location in Forest Hills, Bona Via. La Vigna's cuisine combines the ingredients of traditional Italian home cooking with a sophisticated touch haute cuisine.

Alberto has been a neighborhood institution for over 35 years. Owners, Silvana & Roberto Chiappelloni, originally from Piacenza, Italy, have always believed that good food should not be outrageously expensive and that good wines are meant to be enjoyed. Alberto's menu offers spirited versions of home-cooked dishes from the Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy and Ligurian provinces. Alberto's offers a welcoming and friendly atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door. The bar area is resplendent with an antique mahogany bar, fireplace and large open mahogany doors. Frosted glass and wrought iron chandeliers hang overhead. The souring oak-beamed ceiling is artfully enclosed by exposed brick walls, skylight and colorful artist-signed prints which provide warmth and a delightful sense of coziness. While many NYC eateries have a reputation for highbrow dining, there remains a warm and familial culinary treasure in Forest Hills, Queens. Come and join us at Alberto. Buon Appetito

An exciting new "farm to table" restaurant with romantic views of the Saugatuck River. <br><br> "Hiding in the Saugatuck Rowing Club, this Westport New American Farm to Table is the showcase for chef John Holzwarth's locavore cuisine."

A neighborhood bakery-cafe in Astoria, serving breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. Great food, beer & wine, and wonderful pastries. Everything made from wholesome ingredients with respect for food and the earth it comes from. All fresh ingredients, all pastries baked on premise. Home of the Astor Burger. All burgers made with fresh ground beef from Pat La Frieda of New York. Make it fresh, make it from scratch, make it with love.

As MH Reed observed in the New York Times in February 2008, “Red Hat is so close to the river in Irvington that when the wind is up and the waves slap the shore, their icy spray covers the riverside path to the restaurant.” The two level, French bistro-inspired eatery is housed in a hundred -year -old factory building that has been transformed to feature an uninterrupted, 180 degree view of the river from the main and loft dining levels. Guests will enjoy the seasonal, Hudson Valley ingredients, as well as French bistro classics.
