The Monarch Room serves an extensive menu of modern fresh-market American cuisine. The menu, crafted by Executive Chef Michael Citarella, devotes itself to dishes created with the best local and seasonal ingredients. Designed by Roman and Williams, The Monarch Room is located across the street from the famed Chelsea Market in a 1930's industrial-era warehouse. The design aesthetic of Monarch embraces its industrial roots while maintaining a polished uptown experience.

"We were one of the first seated at the Monarch Room - for a client dinner, after work on a Thursday. The space is beautiful - and matches the pictures online perfectly. The patrons were trendy, as was the staff, and the layout of the place, along with the design is everything you'd expect from a hip, new meatpacking hot spot.
At the time of our visit, the restaurant had just opened - and you could tell. Our service was great, as in friendly/speedy, but the waiters were less than comfortable making recommendations/explaining the dishes (all of which you expect to happen at a place like this). The food was good - just good. Nothing outstanding. The cocktails however, were great.
I'd go back for a drink, but that's about it."

Step beyond our atrium. Agave's serene, smart adobe scene provides a glowing setting for the fusion of tradition and Southwestern innovation of Chef Raul Juarez. <br />Our menus are created with the greatest care to ensure an enchanted experience. Highlights include our Hand Hacked Avocado Guacamole, seared Ahi tuna tataki tostaditas, and Tejas Blue Crab Quesadillas as well as our delicious entrees such as Fire Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Harvest Corn and Smoked Tomato, Fajitas of Wagyu Kobe Beef Skirt Steak and Chili Cider Glazed Salmon with roasted root vegetables. <br />Detailed service paired with creative dishes, cocktails and outstanding wines join to create a definitive experience for brunch, lunch and dinner.

"They always have great food and drinks, and the service is quick and consistent. I had 2 appetizers for dinner and that was plenty. I'd highly recommend the Arte Negroni to drink - really great and made with rum!"

Called "small, but brilliant" by Time Magazine and one of Brooklyn's best restaurants by GQ, Seersucker is a 32-seat neighborhood spot inspired by the food and hospitality of the South. According to The New York Times, "It’s urbane, soft spoken and modern, the kind of place where actual residents of Chapel Hill, Nashville or Birmingham might go on a Saturday night." <br /><br />Chef/owner Robert Newton, who hails from Arkansas, has crafted a cuisine inspired equally by his childhood favorites and the Carroll Street greenmarket across the street. He relies upon small farms and indie purveyors for many of his ingredients, so the menu changes frequently based upon what's available and in season. Seersucker's beer, wine and spirits list is all American, and the coffee comes from Counter Culture of Durham, North Carolina.

"This is a great place to take guests, which is exactly what I did. She got the Brooklyn feel and was impressed by everything. I had the hominy hash and it was to die for. I will go to Seersucker often for as long as I live in BK."

Saxon + Parole, conceived by the award-winning AvroKO Hospitality Group and Executive Chef Brad Farmerie, creators of NoLIta's PUBLIC, brings a global approach to traditional grill fare, within a warm and inviting space on the Bowery. The 112-seat restaurant – named after two prize-winning, New York-bred racehorses – features rich design elements and modernist details, paying homage to the numerous horse stables that once populated Lower Manhattan. The menu explores traditional grill fare, with a focus on domestic meat and seafood, as well as seasonal and sustainable produce. Diners can expect a global twist in the seasoning, cooking methods, and ingredients – highlighted in dishes such as 28-day dry-aged NY strip steak with bone-marrow béarnaise, Heritage farms USA roasted pork rack with purple-potato salad, and roasted Atlantic cod with a tomato-caper broth, Manila clams, braised fennel, white beans and Tuscan kale

"I went with a group of friends and my family and this place was incredible. The cocktails were unique and delicious. I got a campari champagne concoction served in a little bottle, which was fantastic.
As a group we ordered a Rib Eye special with incredible sides (their shisito peppers are to die for) - the steak was like butter and we polished it.
The music is great, the atmosphere is wonderful and there is a ton of space, which is always a huge plus for me in NYC."

"I always enjoy my time at Seersucker and brought three friends there for the first time who loved it. The service was quick, but almost too quick - I felt the check came a little to fast after our brunch. Nonetheless, this place is fantastic."
